All our channel lists have mature content LOCKED & pin protected/ please do not remove this in situations where content could be viewed by minors or adults that would find it offensive & we advise locking any new channels - deleting mature content channels is not recommended as when you rescan at any time they will be rescanned in but UNLOCKED! However if they are already stored & LOCKED they will stay locked. Locking mature channels does not mean you cannot access them- it means only those with the pin can.
3d) F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 RED GREEN YELLOW BLUE keys - special uses. 4) USING USB HDDs & FLASH MEMORY 4a) USB FLASH DRIVES For basic data save/ backup & some basic PVR use. (see high speed 10Mb/s/ 20Mb/s - 25Mb/s or much faster USB HDD rates (100Mb/s- 120Mb/s) We have tested & recommend the following but production batch speeds may vary.
Patriot RAGE QUAD USB Flash Drives- (quoted up to 25MB/s write speeds - tm5402hd tested Read/Write = 20MB/s Write = 42MB/s Read = 38MB/s) or SanDisk Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drives- (tm5402hd tested Read/Write = 20MB/s Write = 42MB/s Read = 38MB/s) PLUG & PLAY - NO NEED TO FORMAT! These are for basic data saving/ loading & limited pvr use- especially HD pvr use & you should try to make sure write & read speeds are capable of the recording you wish to do- most will record the highest bit rates SD up to 3 channels at once & single HD/3D recordings plus the TM5402 can also play back/ pause- rewind/ff live tv or stream at the same time.
Better ones can record HD at higher bit rates but for serious PVR use you should use a HDD with much higher write / read rates & for routine triple recording of high bit rate HD / 3D choose the best rated HDD/s. Every 4Gb can store between 1 1/2 to 4 hours of SD depending on broadcast quality (the better quality - the shorter the available) & between 1/2 & 1 hr HD - some still picture flick screen channels may exceed these record time figures & a few very high broadcast HD channels reduce the end resul. Data write & read figures vary from manufacture & within their model versions. Sandisk Cruzer Blade 16Mb are basic but capable of triple SD & single HD recording & all data transfer. Ultra & Extreme Sandisk versions that claim 10-20Mb/s write speeds 4b) USING USB HDDs For PVR use.
We recommend self powered Western Digital My Passport HDDs These are rated over 56Mb/s write capable & over 70Mb/s read capable- you can find much higher & lower. (tm5402hd tested Read/Write = 20MB/s Write = 43MB/s Read = 37MB/s) Tested here up to 1tb but may allow larger, format in the TM5402HD in seconds & are ready to use in minutes from plugging in & seem to work flawlessly on triple SD recordings - single HD/3D recordings - pause- FF-Rewind live TV / replay recordings or stream at the same time. These may record 2 or 3 HD channels at once without fault depending on bit rates, eg. BBC HD bit rates are c. 9Mb/s but some HD channels can be as high as 23Mb/s or higher & it also depends on how much bandwidth is being used on the 2 or 3 HD channels being recorded - more colours & shades & more / faster movement will increase bandwidths over all recordings & shared bit rate TPs will alter other channels to share the high load times- low colour- shade- movement will reduce overall bandwidths used & triple HD will be easier.
(C) purplesat.com MMXIV All Rights Reserved Worldwide. 4c) DOES & DON'TS FOR USB HDDs & FLASH DRIVES Do not format USB FLASH DRIVES if they are already plug & play - they also can contain files/ programs for use on a PC & network. Avoid cheap usb flash drive - always try to use good quality brands & fast write speeds. Avoid cheap unbranded usb hdd interfaces (USB tiy SATA or USB to IDE etc.). Avoid cheap usb hubs- we haven't tested enough brands yet. Avoid powered hdds Avoid using older HDDs & any that have to be specially formatted to get them to function at all or any that show poor record speeds/ intermittent performance in any way that can cause other issues later on & on other drives or the system & is not recommended from the start.
4d) TROUBLE SHOOTING (USB DRIVES) If you have an old drive that you want to use ignoring the above warnings & it is problematic such as an old hdd or low speed / cheaper unbranded flash drive or cheaper usb to hdd interface, you can partition it in a PC & try formatting using fat32format/128, but drives that are not compatible often stay problematic in long term use & cause unrelated issues elsewhere in the receiver, especially if they have previously failed on a PC & you can lose your recordings using cheap or old devices! (C) purplesat.com MMXIV All Rights Reserved Worldwide. 5) RECORDING VIDEO & EDITING/ TRANSFERING 5a) PAUSE LIVE TV -RWFF PLAY TIMESHIFT (see also 5h AUTO TIMESHIFT) Press PAUSE button at any time will pause live TV & allow fast foreword - rewind & play of the timeline as it build up. 5b) MAKING RECORDINGS For instant recording of the channel you are on press record, if there is an EPG the length recorded will default to the program's end, pressing it again will allow you to alter the record length.
Instant record - just press red record button example of stopping a single record For manually set TIMER recordings press EPG & then the RED button & use the on screen menu or press MENU/ USB / TIME MANAGER to set start / end times / if once- daily- Mon-Fri- Weekly & choose the program & satellite information & whether you want to record or just play the program/ film (& possibly then record on another connected recording device etc.). For EPG set recordings press EPG & just scroll to the program you wish to set a timer for & click the RECORD button on it to mark it for recording or just click OK to just have the receiver play it at the time. EPG Timer setting without recording.with recording (now in red) For Radio (audio) recordings click on the TV/RAD button & repeat the above - ideally set the radio backgroundnd picture to off in settings menu to save recording memory.

6) MOTOR USAGE TIPS- getting the most out of motorised & USALS To check & peak weak satellites & generally motor positioning. Press the POS button to bring up on screen motor positioner at anytime- nudge east or west carefully one touch at a time - if the signal quality increases make a note of the direction it increased but do not save or it will swap to diseqc 1.2 (on that satellite)- instead we advise to go into motorized settings & try altering the satellite's longitude 0.1 degree in that direction at a time & check the signal until it peaks out & starts to go down & save the new temporary position at the highest signal level. This can happen if a chimney/ tree/ noise source or street lamp etc. Is in the way at that satellite or there is oveloads from a big dish on a powerful satellite on a weak transponder.- altering USALS instead of swapping to Diseqc 1.2 keeps all satellites correct & if all satellites are out- this means the motor is off &/or the dish's bracket has bent slightly & it will tell you exactly by how much where diseqc 1.2 cannot- a small correction ( on your true longitude the other way fooling the motor to move all satellites that amount the other way!) is acceptable as 1 degree at the dish is 0.07mm @ at the stub.
EG: 21.5e is very near the very powerful & highly populated 19.2e - in the UK moving away slightly can help reduce bleed over from 19.2e resulting in a higher quality reading - move too far and the result will inevitably be it will go down but at 21.6e.to. 21.9e you may gain an overall improvement- (this will not happen in the middle of the footprint). 7w Nilesat or 4w reception are others you may wish to experiment with but most will be fine in USALS. DISEQC 1.2 & 36v MOTOR CONTROL (C) purplesat.com MMXIV All Rights Reserved Worldwide.
7) EDITING CHANNELS- SATELLITES 7a EDITING CHANNELS THE MOVE OPTION The MOVE option is probably the most powerful for sorting channels the way you want them & also works on favourites too, it can be used very quickly to move all your favourite channels to the top of each satellite & organise favoutes too. 7b EDITING FAVOURITES Once you have added favourites you can use the MOVE function to put them in your favourite order in the same way - just select the favourite to be edited then go to the MOVE function. 7c EDITING SATELLITES/ ADDING FREQUENCIES /CHANNELs ADDING SINGLE CHANNELS 7d EDITING USING A PC EDITOR - TECHNOMATE EDITOR 7e ADDING NEW CHANNELS MANUALLY THAT DON'T SCAN IN You may wish to add some channels manually rather than scanning or blind scanning a whole satellite as this can take longer & add unwanted channels you've previously deleted. HERE'S ONE WAY OF ADDING A SINGLE NEW CHANNEL on your tm5402 or TMF3/5 etc. Go to the satellite. [eg 27.5w] if the tp [transponder] is already in, skip to input a single channel to add a new transponder press menu / advance search / then green button then input the tp frequency/ symbol rate polarization [eg the UK PBS back haul transponder on 27.5w that can prove difficult to scan in on some software/hardware versions frequency = 11494 polarization = v Symbol Rate = 44105] exit & save input a single channel press menu / edit channels.
Add channels. Select the tp. Choose a name eg film4 hd input the 3 pids [eg for film 4 hd] VPID 7501 APID 7502 PPID 7501 & video type HH.264 audio type HE-AAC EXIT & SAVE (C) purplesat.com MMXIV All Rights Reserved Worldwide. See also SECTION 13. FEEDS for adding frequensies & new channels that don't scan in. 8) CONNECTING THE INTERNET The 5402 will automattically connecto to the internet if you plug in a standard lead (RJ45/Ethernet) from your router. Sky WIFI boxes that also plug into the Ethernet port also work automatically.
To use a USB WIFI DONGLE Just plug in the USB WIFI DONGLE press MENU. System Settings.

9) USING SKY CARD IN TM5402HD (including cards that have other entitlements without sky- eg bt sport/ setanta/ asian channels etc.) Your legitimate Sky card should work inserted in the TM5402s card reader, If the TM5402 does not recognise the Sky card. ********************** insert in sky box & get box key from sky box's info menu/s insert your card in the TM's card reader in the menus go to smart card & press ok ensure it has recognised the card then press yellow button & insert numbers in decimal exit to save. (legitimate use in other receivers/ needs to be refreshed in a sky box from time to time)* This allows you the same access as a Sky box but you can have your channels in your most favoured order & use up to 16 favourites to organise them for yourself & family plus more record options & retain the use of recording without their excessive fees should you cancel your sky subscription. ********************************* 10a FEEDS. AND ADDING NEW CHANNELS / SATELLITES & FEEDS ADDING FEEDS FOR FOOTBALL / SPORTS / CONCERTS etc. You can pick up live broadcast feeds from around the world as they are sent back to the studios here. These are often left open & can be viewed including live English football maches / sports events of all types/ live concerts etc.
And news feeds. New from the factory, most satellite receivers hold a database / list of frequencies [ transponders = tp's] for each satellite at the time of manufacture or last sw version - but they don't know what's up there at any one time after that, as satellites can change / move & frequencies [tps] can change over time including the other bits of data that go with the tp [symbol rate / fec / etc] So you do need some way of keeping them up to date - you can.
Some receivers can or can be made to auto update overnight [via sat or net] Download a ready made [up to date] channel list HERE. Manually add new frequencies &/or edit old ones. CHOOSE FEEDS YOU CAN RECEIVE WITH YOUR DISH SIZE. NOT - crypte / enc ' encrypted / or multistream (requires a pc card or 17' rack equipment atm) 4:2:2. On most satellite receivers you cannot see 4:2:2 broadcast feeds LIVE as they are transmitted in a slightly different format however if you record them you can still view them afterwards by playing them back on a PC with appropriate software that plays.ts files and on Linux E2 receivers you can stream the transport stream out to a PC or other device & show it live. EXAMPLE FOOTBALL FEED SENT FREE TO AIR. Goto the satellite in question (eg above 10 east) press MENU >>>>over to >>Advance Search & click OK to enter that menu look through the transponders using the blue ring sideways buttons (also used for vol+/-) to see if you have the frequency (within 1, 2 or 3 out is OK) & the same polarization ( H or V) & the same SR ( symbol rate) as on the feed you chose on www.satelliweb.com.
And there's the match. In HD this one, they are usually in higher broadcast quality- success!. Screen shots of different examples. The above example is off Manchester United v Chelsea in broadcast quality HD at a massive 30Mbps. LEVEL IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII QUALITY IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIII **************************** LEVEL IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII QUALITY IIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIII if you do not find a match to the frequency press the green button and add a new TP - input the frequency in the transponder line - input symbol rate & input polarization - ( H or V) editing the frequency/ symbol rate & polarization to those on satelliweb.com below. To these (ringed in red ) & press red button to scan & exit to the screen & move to the feed (if it's not already on). ******************************** if the frequency is there & the poolarization is correct- check & alter ther symbol rate & alter to match that to the one you chose off www.satelliweb if different, press red buttn to scan & exit to the screen & move to the feed (if it's not already on).
If you still haven't found & scanned in the feed check all the above settings are correct including being on the correct satellite - it may be that it has ceased or become scrambled (it will stay blank but show the word scrambled & signal/quality bars will slill light up) (C) purplesat.com MMXIV All Rights Reserved Worldwide. ********************** INPUTTING FEEDS ON LINUX/ ENIGMA 2# RECEIVERS MENU.

Simply go to the satellite in question & the channel the match is on (usually already stored in favourites - SPORTS ). Brown indicates it's free to air or has a BISS key.
If the channel is not there you will need to scan it in using the information provided in the panel as you put your cursor over the broadcaster. For example only.
If the Satellite is. 10e Frequency = 10994 Symbol rate = 5000 & Polarization is V GOTO 10e.

System crashes while editing a large number of tps - always save regularly/ keep tps under max allowed. ****************************** 12b) FAULT FINDING TIPS Many diverse faults can be caused by using cheap/ faulty/old &/or slow USB devices just the same as having an unreliable device on a PC/Laptop can cause all sorts of apparently unrelated faults that disappear when the device is removed- see recommended USB devices.
Faults can arise from attaching to devices with electrical faults such as old sky boxes/ tvs/ vcrs / new or old smpsu's with hf-rf faults etc. Including in other rooms via coax aerial leads or av leads or shared LNB cables on twin/quad/octo lnbs/ lnb switches or using lopp through to or from a faulty receiver. Faults can arise from errors in flashing / patching or images becoming corrupted over time. If you see a fault or faults that are unusual you could have a corrupt image or flashing issue - typical signs are certain obvious options that stop working.
If in doubt & for good regular housekeeping, back up all & re flash to original latest Technomate software - do a factory reset & reload the channels & test for a few days - if the fault has disappeared re flash with the latest patch. ********************** 12) WISH LIST OF NEW FEATURES 7 Day EPG on Astra 2 - auto update from sat & from net (now is even faster***) Iplayer ITV player etc. Red button digital text services (access to news/ weather pages etc.

Entry level USB drives do NOT have any defined transfer speed. The Ultra and Extreme USB flash drives MAY vary from 10MB/s to 25MB/s depending on the specific product. Other memory for comparison.
SD/SDHC/SDXC cards The standard (Blue labeled) line has a minimum transfer speed as defined by the Class Specification printed on the label. For example, a Class 2 SD/SDHC card will have at least a read/ write speed of 2MB/s. Class 4 SD/SDHC card will have a minimum transfer speed of 4 MB/s.
The transfer speed of the Ultra, Extreme and Extreme Pro SD/SDHC/SDXC cards are listed on the card and the packaging. Depending on when the product was manufactured, the Ultra cards speed can range from 10MB/s to 30MB/s. The Extreme and Extreme Pro cards speed can range from 20MB/s to 30MB/s. The defined transfer speed is calculated using benchmark applications and refers to maximum sequential transfer speed. CompactFlash cards The standard line CompactFlash cards do NOT have any defined transfer speed. These are entry level cards and will generally be slower cards suitable for low end entry level cameras. The speed of the Ultra, Extreme, and Extreme Pro CompactFlash cards are listed on the card and the packaging.
Depending on when the product was manufactured, the Ultra cards speed can range from 10MB/s to 60MB/s. The Extreme and Extreme Pro cards speed can range from 20MB/s to 100MB/s. The defined transfer speed is calculated using benchmark applications and refers to maximum sequential transfer speed. ===================== NOT ALL FEATURES ON THE M1/M2 VERSIONS OF THE TM5402HD ARE THE SAME AS THE M3.

As I have mentioned already in other threads that I have just purchased the Humax HD Freesat box which I expect to be delivered by Amazon on Monday. However, I have this feeling that I might not get it to work fully because my current signals from the dish isn't the best. The problem is that the dish is a fixed to one position and I cannot tilt it to try and obtain better signal.
I am therefore thinking about calling round a dish installation expert and getting the job done that way. However, I don't know whether to use to obtain better signal using the current dish or just get a new dish such as this one below. I have lost quite a few which my existing box just hasbn't been able to pick up for months even though they were there before. So, should I use the existing dish (which by the way has a single cable and not the twin one as advertised in the above dish) or should I I order the above dish and get some one to come around and install it. My existing dish is at the back wall by a second floor window. I don;'t think I will be able to do this myself because it would require unscrewing and then screwing the dish back into place.
How much should I be paying someone to come around and install the dish or fix the current one to receive better signal? I live in North London near the Arsenal football stadium (I know prices can vary in different places in England). Also, can a twin cable be fixed on to the current dish because the Humax Freesat requires two cable to get the best out of it? You don't actually say what your current dish is like - a standard Sky-type mini-dish should suffice in London - so if it's ex-Sky it probably doesn't need changing, just realigning. And, as you are aware, it will need a twin-LNB, with two cables, to use the Humax Foxsat to the full.
As regards the cost, it'd be best for you to get 2 or 3 quotes. After all, suppose I say £80, & you phone a fitter & he says £100, what are you going to do - tell him that someone on AVForums says he's over-charging?
Doubt if it will do much good. You don't actually say what your current dish is like - a standard Sky-type mini-dish should suffice in London - so if it's ex-Sky it probably doesn't need changing, just realigning.

Click to expand.Well, its a standard black Sky dish (I think its mini as it isn't really all that big and still looks pretty slick to this day) installed by Sky when I first subscribed to their channels, though dropped their subscribed channels after few years and have been receiving only the free channels in the last several years. I use to be ale to receive all the channels that are supposed to be received free, but the very bad weather would always play havoc with the signal and the channels would keep coming and back forth until they seemed to have dropped off for good over the last few months (but still get most channels).
I can connect to the Humax freesat box with current single cable but need twin LNB twin cables to maximise the potential of the box, right? Also, I don't mind paying between £50 and £75 to get some one to realign it and fitted with a twin cable. Its positioned on an awkward place which would be best done by an expert fitter. Also, can my current dish be fitted with twin LNB and twin cables or should I just order the dish I posted a link to from Amazon?
If it can be done to the existing dish, how much would the equipment (i.e. The twin cable and twin lnb cost or would this something the installation fitter bring with them if I say I need that fitted to the existing dish). Let me know what would be the best thing to do. I want to minimise cost, but given the dish itself with twin lnb and cable isn't very expensive, might it be better just to install new dish?
