I tried manually entering pids with this receiver but it won't scan in and remember channels. Has anyone had any luck with this function on this receiver? I am trying to get Insp on 110w.

I've never had a 6000, but I remember having to use channel editing software for some manual PID stations with my old 4000.  I can't remember if that was just with old firmware and it was eventually fixed, but it seems to me it was how I got the old CW manual PID channels into the receiver. If the channel has AC3 audio and is manual PID you have to use a channel editor as there is no way to specify AC3 audio on a manual PID scan.

Requires you to connect the receiver to a PC via a serial cable. There is one piece of software that connects and transfers the channel data file and then a second that edits that file and lets you add the channel. You then dump the edited channel data file back to the receiver.

I have the AC3 problem with my cs8000 but don't know of any channel editor. I think the pid entry on the 6000 is corrupt. But I think it has rogue firmware on it. I need to find the best firmware for it.

I like the factory 100 bin the best for coolsat 6000. I can email it to you if you need it...

There is no channel editor for CS8000/8100.

here is the loader and 100 bin

- turn off coolsat6000 with the power switch on the back of the unit
- hook up "straight through" serial cable between PC and coolsat6000
- open loader program
- click browse and select the 100 bin
- make sure its set to "to reciever" not to "to computer"
- select com port or auto detect it
- click "connect"
- turn on power switch on back of coolsat 6000
- wait for everything to finish... coolsat will reboot(i think... havnt done this in a while)

hope i zipped it correctly...

Actually, a third party team fix a lot of things and release a new bin.

- Signal levels are set to OEM 100 levels
- Blindscans AC3 audio PIDs
- Allows input of 5 digit APID for AC-3
- 'moving positioner' message is displayed for 15 seconds if no active TP is found
- Updated satellite list ndf
- Bug fix when using DisEqc / USALS to switch to a new satellite some channels were - choppy
- Fix after scanning - default channel list was All Satellite. 
- Now it will leave it the same state as before scanning.
- Bug fix when using DBS LNB blind scan end frequency was low
- Added legacy switch SWXX support
- Added provider ID banner in dish setup
- Added beep tone in dish setup
- Added beep tone on/off switch

I did the update today and it's working fine.The satellite list should be updated. I'm working on it.

Mod edit...no 3rd party file posting.

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!
