Setting your satellite TV system

     

    • (STEP 1) Set up

      VAST satellite TV

      Power up your VAST box and connect to your TV using either the red, white and yellow RCA cables or HDMI cable. Use the source/input button on your remote control to select the correct input. This is usually AV for RCA and HDMI for the HDMI cable. If you are unsure then please check your TV manual. Have the blue screen saying “searching for signal” on at all times during the set up process. Connect your satellite dish to your VAST box.

    • (STEP 2) Point the iTechworld satellite dish north using the compass. (make sure there is no obstructions)

    • (STEP 3) Set the elevation for your area according to the reference chart. Note: The final elevation you use to obtain a signal may be different from what is listed in the instructions. Our aim is to get our satellite finder needle to go off the scale, this is when the needle goes past 10.

    • (STEP 4) Set the needle on the satellite finder initially to 5 using the DB scroll.

     

    • (STEP 5) Do a sweep from North towards the satellite bearing (as listed in the reference chart) with the iTechworld satellite dish.

    • (STEP 6) Watch for movement on the finder, if the needle goes “off the scale” proceed to step 12 if the needle does not go off the scale then proceed to step 7.

     

    • (STEP 7) Re position the dish to North.

     

    • (STEP 8) Move up 3-5 degrees on elevation.

    • (STEP 9) Set the needle on the satellite finder to 5 using the DB scroll. (it may already be on 5)

    • (STEP 10) Do a sweep from North towards the satellite bearing (as listed in the reference chart) with the iTechworld satellite dish.

    • (STEP 11) Watch for movement on the finder, if the needle goes “off the scale” go to step 12 if the needle does not go off the scale go back to step 7.

    • (STEP 12) Check the TV screen, it should now read signal found and will load channel 800 if this is the case please contact VAST to activate your smart card.  Phone Vast on 1300 99 33 76 or visit their website www.mysattv.com.au If the message on the screen still says “searching for signal” please proceed to step 13.

    • (STEP 13) Return to your satellite dish and sat finder, turn the DB back to 8 adjust the dish position and elevation until the needle goes off the scale again. Check the TV screen, it should now read signal found and will load channel 800 if this is the case please contact VAST to activate your smart card.Phone Vast on 1300 99 33 76 or visit their website www.mysattv.com.au If the screen still reads searching for signal please proceed to step 14.

    • (STEP 14) Return to the satellite dish. Adjust the skew of the LNB 5 degrees clock wise (as you face the dish). Check the TV screen, it should now read signal found and will load channel 800 if this is the case please contact VAST to activate your smart card. Phone Vast on 1300 99 33 76 or visit their website www.mysattv.com.au If the screen still reads searching for signal please repeat step 14 until you get the signal.
