So, you should proceed as follows: connect the receiver to a satellite dish and to your TV, click "Enable".
4
Go to the menu of the receiver and locate the point associated with the search for channels (it can also be called "Installation").
5
Now you will be prompted to choose between two search modes: "Manual" and "Auto" (manual and automatic, respectively). If you have nothing to do, you can stop at the first option, but it may be delayed for hours. So it is best to choose automatic mode, and then make adjustments to the location of the software by using manual control. After pressing the appropriate button on the receiver starts to receive information about channels that it remembers Autonomous.
6
Now you only view the available channels: to delete repeating, adjust those that have been recorded in the memory with interference, etc.
7
Draw your attention to the fact that some receivers may have a third mode called "Blind Search". In this case, it is worth looking at it, because it not only automatically finds all channels, but also scans all frequency bands, choosing the best. The only "but" - you will need a little more time on the final configuration.

Advice 2 : How to set the receiver

A satellite dish is purchased, the receiver is unpacked, and in order to take in the abundance and diversity of TV channels it remains to configure the receiver.
How to set the receiver



The most complex and delicate part of the configuration is correct and accurate alignment of the antenna to the satellite. The fact that the deviation of the antenna with a diameter of 90 cm only 1 degree from the optimal direction leads to a weakening of the signal by half, and the tools used for antenna pointing, have a much more significant error. This means that the instrument points the antenna is possible only approximately, and the final setting should be based on the actual level of the received signal.



  1. Connect the receiver to the TV receiver, set the TV so that menu was on the screen. Tune will specify the frequency of the local oscillator, as the input of the receiver receives a signal equal to the difference between frequencies of the satellite signal and the local oscillator of the Converter. Open installation of the antenna (or Antenna Settings Antenna Setup) and set the lo frequency.

  2. Click the search channels (Channel Search) and specify the signal parameters of the satellite, which in this area is definitely accepted. Scale the quality of the signal appeared on the screen to set up. Rotate the antenna until the quality scale will not show a result different from zero. It remains to bring the antenna so that the signal reached a maximum value, to fix its position and to search for channels. It will not hurt to make sure that "caught" you need a friend, because different satellites are the same parameters of the signals. Follow the signal level during final tightening of the bolts: this operation is dangerous because the antenna can lead the way.

  3. "Search" of the channels is actually not so much as download it to your device memory data on the characteristics of satellite programs. This data is transmitted in the signal and must be correctly recognized by the receiver. They can also be entered manually (manual search, Manual Search), which is more time consuming, but reliable. Automatically adjust the receiver easier, but it may take more time. The most effective is the network search (Network Search), but not all companions support him (NTV support, and Yamal ).

Advice 3 : How to tune guitar with tuner

For aspiring guitarists, until they acquired the proper experience, it is not easy to set the guitar by ear. The solution to this problem is the use of a tuner. However, tuners are professional musicians when you need to quickly and silently adjust the guitar, for example, at the concert. Tuners can be of different types, but the principle works all the same, the differences only display.
The appearance of a guitar tuner
You will need
  • Guitar, tuner.
Instruction
1
Pick up a guitar. Place the included tuner near you. For example, at the knee. The point is that the sound produced by the instrument, was heard by the tuner.
2
Pull the first string of the guitar. Your tuner should respond to voiced sound change of the indicator.
Typically, the indicators show the nearest note name and degree of its deviation from the nominal frequency. If the indicator is deflected to the right, so the string sounds higher value and need to relax. If left, then the string should be slightly tightened. Deviation indicator is sometimes referred to by the signs # (sharp) and b (flat). Sharp means the string needs to relax, flat – the string needs to be tightened.
This is particularly the case when the string slightly upset. I.e., the indicator displays the note name, the height of which you want to configure the string. For example, in our case, the first string should sound like the note mi. This note is denoted by the letter E.
3
Adjust the string until, until the indicator show the designation of the notes mi (E), and the meter needle does not stay clear in the middle. The sign E denoting the e in the row of symbols is between the D and F. Fully music letters is denoted as: A (La) B (si) C (to) D (re) E (mi) F(FA) G (Sol). Sometimes the sound of si denoted by the letter H.
4
Set up the same way the other strings of the guitar. In the classical setting six-string guitar, the second string must be configured on the si, and the third in salt fourth in d, fifth in La, sixth in mi.
Note
Please note that it is not always the guitar is set up in classical formation.
Useful advice
If you are setting up an electric guitar, your tuner, for example, built into a guitar processor or an independent device with an input for a guitar cable, you will need to connect the guitar to the input of the tuner, then the action algorithm is the same as described above.

There are software tuners for the computer and even for mobile phones.
