I think it's about 15 effective channels....these channels are all free to air...some are news channels and other info and other religious.  Try it....if you don't like it just delete the bouquet

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 FEC to "5/6"
Select "Accept these settings"

Step 9:

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

Sorry....I don't know

I googled the topic and then "copy and paste" the article.

However it does work on our decoder, but we don't have HD PVR, just the normal DSD 1110.

Elvin, you cannot 'enable' a network. You have options such as other, IS7, IS10, w4 etc.
