    Receiver update

    Hi,
    I have a KAON KSC-570 which was updated last on Feb 11 07 ( info taken from setup on machine).
    The machine is running OK, but not pulling in as many stations from Hotbird and Astra 1 as my other machine, possibly due to software being out of date?
    I have tried to google for update without success,any ideas as to where I could find it from?
    If you can locate an update, could you give me a guide on how to update via the serial interface (comp to receiver) as never done one before?
    Many Thanks
    Don

    the software used to have to be updated reguarly so that it could keep up with the changes required so that you could get "pay" channels without paying - by inputting of the codes.

    however, many (if not all) of these pay channels have seriously upgraded their encryption, and new software will not open them up....this goes for many other receivers also.

    it may be you just need to do a search for new channels....you do not need new software to do a channels scan ....just use the search options in the menu.

    it may help if you give a few example of the channels your otrher machine is pulling in...again i dont think there are any pay tv channels open for free on astra or hotbird...so all you may need to do is perform a channel search.

    Hi,
    many thanks for your reply to my query.
    have tried scanning via pid and re scan on hotbird, even resorted to return to factory settings and starting from scratch, but I still cannot get the channels that my other machine is getting.
    So it must be something to do with the machine - possible retirement called for if I want to get the same channels on both machines.
    Can't be the dish - as it is the same one I use for both machines.
    Many thanks
    Don

    again it may help if you give a few example of the channels your other machine is pulling in...

    sometimes there are new transponders which now carry channels that did not a few years ago, and these new tranponders may not be in the TP list of your KAON KSC-570, so you may have to add these to see your channels.
