Satellite Installation Guide Agila 2 Approximate Azimuth: 120 Elevation: 60 Sun s position at 9am Searching for the signal

1. After finding a suitable location for your satellite dish and have mounted it already, turn on your satellite receiver. 2. Press the Info button of your remote control. You will see the signal strength level and signal (video) quality indicator bars. The bars will decrease or incre ase upon adjusting the antenna dish sideward and/or upward. NOTE: Channels 1 (E-talk) to 10 (Mabuhay) are the easiest signal to find. So pre ss the info button of your remote control on any of these channels. 3. Maximize the signal strength and signal (video) quality by aligning the direc tion of the dish. 4. Slowly turn the satellite dish from left to right and vice-versa until you de termine the highest signal strength and quality possible (tighten the bolts for the sideward movement of the dish). Tighten lightly the nuts holding the sidewar d direction. 5. Slowly tilt the satellite dish up or down and again determine if the signal s trength and quality can still be improved (tighten the bolts for the upward/down ward movement of the dish). 6. Keep on trying until you find the signal. Do not give up. NOTE: 70-90 percent signal strength and quality is sufficient for a good quality of audio and video. If your signal strength is 70% but your quality is close to 0%, it means that your cable wire is OK but you still haven t found the signal. S ignal (video) quality is the one that you should make its signal higher. NOTE: Do not do a Channel Search anymore since the complete channels are already inside the receiver. Reminder: Please do not Factory Default or Factory Reset your satellite receiver a t all times. Sometimes if you can t find the signal after long tiring search, your tendency is to think that the receiver is not working so you press the Factory Reset. It will cause you a lot of trouble since you will have to start from scra tch. I have placed the complete channels in the receiver for the customer s conven ience. But since you deleted it already, you don t have a guide anymore. DEFINITIONS: Access card - A plastic card that you insert into your satellite receiver.
