    I know ihis might be old news to some but inorder to save my hard earned buck I considered the possibility of receiving the free channels accessible through the DSTV decoder... What was annoying me was that those south african radio channels on the DSTV radio bouquet are suppose to be free and was not accessing them once my subscription has expired.
    Here is how you can go about it.
    SETTINGS
    Step 1:
    Before setting up your decoder, please ensure that your decoder software is upgraded to the latest version.
    To perform a software upgrade:
    Press the MENU button.
    Select "ADVANCED OPTIONS" and press OK.
    Select "DSD UPGRADE" and press OK.
    The decoder should start to upgrade the software now. If you are not sure about the version of your decoder software, you can contact Multichoice or your local DSTV technician/supplier and they will be able to help you.
    Step 2:
    Press menu
    Select "Advanced Options"
    Select "Dish Installation"
    Enter the pin "9949"
    Select "Network Configuration"
    Select "Network 2 Setup" NB: Leave "Network 1 Setup (Home)" unchanged!!
    Set Signal Setup to "Enabled" by selecting it, and moving left or right
    Set Frequency to "11170"
    Set Symbol Rate to "26652
    Set Polarization to "Vertical"
    Set FEC to "5/6"
    Select "Accept these settings"
    Step 3:
    Select "Network 3 Setup"
    Set Signal Setup to "Enabled"
    Set Frequency to "11625"
    Set Symbol Rate to "15000
    Set Polarization to "Vertical"
    Set FEC to "3/4"
    Select "Accept these settings"
    Step 4:
    Select "Network 4 Setup"
    Set Signal Setup to "Enabled"
    Set Frequency to "11674"
    Set Symbol Rate to "26652
    Set Polarization to "Vertical"
    Set FEC to "5/6"
    Select "Accept these settings"
    Step 5:
    Select "Network 5 Setup"
    Set Signal Setup to "Enabled"
    Set Frequency to "12522"
    Set Symbol Rate to "26657
    Set Polarization to "Horizontal"
    Set FEC to "1/2"
    Select "Accept these settings"
    Step 6:
    Select "Network 6 Setup"
    Set Signal Setup to "Enabled"
    Set Frequency to "12562"
    Set Symbol Rate to "26657
    Set Polarization to "Horizontal"
    Set FEC to "1/2"
    Select "Accept these settings"
    Step 7:
    Select "Network 7 Setup"
    Set Signal Setup to "Enabled"
    Set Frequency to "12682"
    Set Symbol Rate to "26657
    Set Polarization to "Horizontal"
    Set FEC to "1/2"
    Select "Accept these settings"
    Step 8:
    Select "Network 8 Setup"
    Set Signal Setup to "Enabled"
    Set Frequency to "12722"
    Set Symbol Rate to "26657
    Set Polarization to "Vertical"
    Set FEC to "1/2"
    Select "Accept these settings"
    Step 9:
    Exit once to go back to the "Dish Installation" menu
    Select "Scan All Networks"
    Your decoder will go into scanning mode and might take a while to scan all 9 networks. Do not interrupt the process even if it seams to take longer than you expected!
    Once completed, your picture will return as normal
    To access you public channels, press the "TV button" on your remote control.
    The "Bouquet Options" menu will appear.
    Select "Public PAS7/10"
    Pressing any of the arrow buttons on your remote, will open the screen with all the available Free to Air channels.
    Simply select the channel you wish to view and press ok to tune.
    To access the radio channels, simply select the "music note" on your remote (while still on Public PAS7/10 bouquet) and select which channel you would like to listen.

    is it wise to define these settings while the monthly subscription has not expired? or better wait until it has expired?

    its your choice ...hata ukiweka kabla hazijaisha still zinafanya kazi na unaweza ukapata channels chache za ziada ambazo pengine ulikuwa huna hapo mwanzo....!!
