Wouldn't re-loading the N. A. firmware also restore the satellite list? Just a guess, I'm not sure.

I think that if that worldwide sat list pops in, it means that the worldwide list was in the backup directory, so the NA sat list is now gone.  If a backup has been made at some point, you can just pop that back in, but if a backup hasn't been made, then you're out of luck, and will have to start over from scratch.  If you can find a copy of the DVBS.dat file that perfectly matches what was in there before, you won't lose your channels, but if you have to load in a sat list that doesn't match, you'll probably have to wipe out your channels too. 
   Anyway, it's a good idea to periodically make backup copies of the 3 .dat files, as then you can generally recover sats and channels in just a few seconds.  Some people use programs that save the DVBS.dat file in the backup directory, but that isn't as foolproof as just making periodic backups.

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!
