you view that satellite, it is necessary to fine tune that satellite. Perform the following steps.
1. Move to the satellite in question.
2. Use the EAST and WEST keys to obtain the best possible picture.
3. Follow the steps in the Add a New Satellite procedure, as if you are entering this satellite as
a new satellite.

unit. Contact your local satellite dealer/installer for assistance.
