    Viewsat 9000 Setup Guide Using USB
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Viewsat 9000 Setup Guide Using USB
    1. First you must download and unzip (extract) the yymmdd.pgm from the Files section.

    2. Insert your Memory Stick in your PC and either transfer the extracted .pgm file from your computer or you can extract it directly to your USB drive.

    3. Insert the USB drive into your STB. (either rear or front - just make sure you enable REAR USB or FRONT USB in the menu - under USER SETTING - OPTION) If the STB doesn't recognize you flash drive, make sure the drive is formated FAT32.

    4. In the Main Menu select System information and press OK
    Select Receiver Upgrade and press OK
    Go down to the bottom of the window, select USB and press OK
    A new window opens with files. Select your pgm file and press OK.
    **************************************
    VERY IMPORTANT. DO NOT TURN THE POWER OFF
    Let the receiver finish and reboot on its own!!!
    **************************************

    5. Select User Setting -> Parental Control.
    Set Menu Lock to Off. Password is "0000"
    Select User Setting -> Time Setting.
    Set Time Mode to Auto. Set Time Adjustment to the GMT offset for your area
    (-3:30 for Newfoundland, -4:00 for Atlantic, -5:00 for Eastern, -6:00 for Central, -7:00 for Mountain, -8:00 for Pacific, -9:00 for Alaska, or -10:00 for Hawaii).
    Set Summer Time to Off for Standard Time or On for Daylight Savings Time.
    Select User Setting -> System Settings.
    Set Local Channel to On. Change Local Channel Region to your city or the closest one listed. Channels will be mapped to their normal local channel numbers.
    Select User Setting -> Option.
    Set Sort By SID to On.
    Set Auto TP to On.
    Set Auto Roll to All.
    Set Full Channel Name to On.
    Select User Setting -> EPG Setting.
    Set EPG TP to E:12472 and N:12311.


    6. The following assumes you have put 119 on port #1 and 110 on port #2. You should change these to the way you have wired and connected to your switch.

    SETTING UP ANTENNA SETTINGS: (119)
    MENU -- INSTALLATION -- ANTENNA SETUP

    Scroll top line (RIGHT/LEFT arrow key) to EchoStar 7 119.0W
    LNB Power ON
    LNB Type STANDARD (LEGACY LNB) or ("OCS-DP" for PRO LNB) depends on what you have.
    LNB Freq. 11250
    22KHz OFF
    TP Freq. 12239 (it will default back to 12224 -thats normal)
    DiSEqc 1.0 PORT 1
    Motor OFF (If none)
    You should display EchoStar 7 119.0W in the top right of the display!!! If not, you don't have your ports setup correct or your dish is not aimed correct.
    "EXIT" and "YES" to Save.

    *****************************************
    SETTING UP ANTENNA SETTINGS: (110)
    MENU -- INSTALLATION -- ANTENNA SETUP

    Scroll top line (RIGHT/LEFT arrow key) to EchoStar 8,10 110W
    LNB Power ON
    LNB Type STANDARD (LEGACY LNB) or ("OCS-DP" for PRO LNB)depends on what you have.
    LNB Freq. 11250
    22KHz OFF
    TP Freq. 12224
    DiSEqc 1.0 PORT 2
    Motor OFF (If none)
    You should display EchoStar 8,10 110W in the top right of the display!!! If not, you don't have your ports setup correct or your dish is not aimed correct.


    "EXIT" and "YES" to Save.

    Repeat the above steps for all of the sats you have LNB's for...

    "EXIT" to the MAIN MENU


    7. Channel Scan (also from Installation menu)
    Select Auto Scan
    Press OK
    You can change the sat you want to scan by using the F1 button and selecting the sat to scan. Press exit to get out of the sat selection menu.
    Select Scan Start and press OK. Do this for all the Sats you have.

    8. Exit and save the settings

    9. Wait for Autoroll and watch TV

    I hope I haven't missed anything!!!

    Re: Viewsat 9000 HD Version 2

    Thanks for the help, I think that I might have it programed now. I just need to figure out how to get the keys from this site onto my USB stick or do I have to imput them manually. And I notice in my reciever uses 08, 09, 88 and 89 but on this site it uses 86 and 96, do I need to change my 88 and 89 to say 86 and 96 or are these not the right keys for my machine??? Any clarification on this would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for being so confused and thanks for any help anyone can give.

    There is a easy way. A program in the loaders section called VSkey will make a OPkey file you can load, load the keys with your USB. There is manual entery as well.

    Re: Viewsat 9000 HD Version 2

    Hi!
    I need a little help... Im going to buy Viewsat 9000 V2 soon and i just wanted to confirm that it will work on my dish and i wont need anything else...
    I've got a 20' Original Bev dish with SW21 pointed onto 82 and 91 sat's. AS i understand i will not need a 8 psk thing to get HD, right? How many HD channels will i get? Somewhere in the forum i saw that Bev has very limited channels, why is that?
    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Viewsat 9000 HD Version 2

    Just bough Viewsat 9000 V2
    Software is in, everything seems to be working fine, got about 600 channels working, 55 HD(Sat's 91 and 82)...but, im found out that SW41 that came with the receiver gets lesser signal than my SW21, so i decided to use SW21 for now. Still some channels take a long time to start... does anybody else has this problem?

    Re: Viewsat 9000 HD Version 2

    I don't know of anyone else having this problem and I don't test the 9000 hd but you can try the following see if it will work....



    Viewsat 9000 HD Boot Loop Fix Version 2

    Running this file takes some time, so don't be in a hurry and please wait until it is done installing. Use this file when your Viewsat 9000 HD is stuck in a 'boot loop'.
    This is when your receiver displays "BOOT", "00:00 am", "ON" and then cycles back to "BOOT" and repeats the sequence, never to actually turn on. Not recommended for any other problems.
    Use PVR Loader and serial cable null it's work so fine

The above name switch is what I use and works great have had problems with lesser switches Good Luck .......
