How to add a new satellite?

Postby dog-man » Fri Dec 29, 2017 9:20 am

I have blind scanned Bulgaria-Sat1 at 1.9E and saved the output to the transponders folder in Dvb Dream.

However, Dvb Dream is not seeing this new satellite and I can not add it to my list of sats that I am interested in.
How can I do this?

How did you do the blindscan?

Try the following:

options / transponders /add new
Enter Satellite name and position code 0019

options / diseqc / Add Satellite
select 0019 OK

Tools / Blind Scanner / Start
Save Menu

make output ini file name the way DD accepts 0130.ini for example (satellite position in satcodx format)
Also you need to restart DVB Dream for it to recognize INI file. Then you need to add satellite in diseqc dialog (even though you don't have a diseqc)
DVB Dream - because I have to dream about having time to code it

Another variant of having .INI file for scanning is to scan the satellite with Crazyscan and then save the file generated by the application and put it in the transponders folder in the DVB Dream directory.
