  31. mulindanguluka mulewa

    How do you track it on qsat decoder? The base freq 12518H 29500, does it apply to lusaka zambia as well? For DSTV do you see the dish channel as confirmation or what will tell for DSTV? How do you tell one inch shift to the left

    1. FK

      To track Nigcomsat is straight to the point but a little tricky. First, on your Qsat Decoder enter settings menu….under satelite where you can be able to edit or add a new frequency and symbol rate. Input this DSTV frequency: 12245 symbol rate: 27500 while polarization is either H or V depending on the orientation of your LNB. Now after hitting Green or any colour that shows you have gotten DSTV via the frequency on your QSAT…Now, add the Nigcomsat frequency too from the settings. Looking at the Quality and percentage level on your QSAT decoder, bring down the dish little by little and to the left until you hit Nigcomsat

      1. Akeem

        How many persent quality we can get befour we blind scan

      2. Akeem

        Four the left side is wen
