How To Watch SS3ni and SS5ni on your Qsat

Not all Q-sat decoder models can be able to scan for the SS3ni and SS5ni channels. In here, I would show you 2 easy methods.

First method

  1. SS3ni runs on the Frequency 12208 v 27496.
  2.  If you have  a good signal quality, remove the coaxial cable from ‘LNB in’ to ‘LNB out’. This can be found at the back of your Q-sat decoder. Tight it very well.
  3. Press on Menu on your Q-sat remote.
  4. Then Navigate to Installation. At default the first Menu option is Installation.
  5. Press on Ok. You would be prompted for a password. Input 0000 unless you did not change it
  6. Scroll down to Transponder List. If you are comfortable using your default satellite to scan, skip step 7 and 8. I would recommend using a different Satellite.
  7. Then press on Sat on you remote.
  8. Use a different satellite name you are not using already. In my case I would use Hotbird/013.0E Then Press on OK.
  9. Press on the red button on the remote
  10. A Panel would pop up
  11. Input 12208, then scroll down and input 27496 for the Frequency and Symbol rate respectively. Then change the Polarization to Vertical
  12. Press on Exit. This should save your Transponder.
  13. Press Exit again and you would be sent to Installation. Navigate to Antenna Setting and select the Satellite name you used at step 8.
  14. Scroll down to Transponder and select the new frequency you added. Often it can be seen obviously above. Below, you should see the Signal strength and Quality rise. It is ok when the signal quality is higher than the signal strength.
  15. If you are on a diseq-switch, use the relevant Diseq 1.0 positions. If not, skip this step.
  16. Press on the Blue button and at ‘Scan Type’, select ‘Blind Scan’. All other inputs remain the same.
  17. Press Ok when done. Wait for a while, after scan has completed, save it.
  18. Press on exit to leave Menu
  19. Press on Sat and switch to your new satellite, you should see SS3ni and SS5ni among the channels.
  20. Enjoy.
