Does anyone know how to delete a satellite from the receiver w/o a cpu reset? Can you write the steps? The manual (which I still have) does not show the steps. I have some satellite names that when accidentally moved too go past the limits and trip the breaker on that back of the receiver.

On my 9000, say you want to position G6.  All the sats are pre-named so you can't change that.

But I just manually go to the desired satellite location using the east and west buttons till my picture comes in.  Then I press the red lettered MEMO buttion on the far left column, middle row for about 2 seconds.  The display flashes and the new position is saved.

NOTE..There is a LOCK button that is very annoying and if it's pushed and the small red lock light is on , the above is disabled.  To disable the lock button, hold it in for a few seconds and release.

I'm not sure why you would need to delete it, just move it into the limits of the dish and do the above.

ok, that's a good idea. I will reposition to the end of the arc and save the sats there. I usually don't have the lock on. I thought there was a way to delete a satellite
the reason is because I moved the dish and chose the wrong satellite name. The dish went West and tripped the receiver breaker at 160 deg or so. I must have some names saved past the limits.
I chose T1 instead of +1 for 55w. It went West instead of East. Thanks.

Those receivers were made back when memory was precious and programs were written in very rigid constraints.  Hence, without resetting everything, I don't think there is a way to delete satellite positions other than changing them if they already have a position stored.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
