1. Start manual searching with a vertical transponder of the DF1-package
(12.090) and your d-box should get an update (v.2.0). But CAREFULL, now you
will be not able to receive the MultiChoice package anymore with the d-box.
In order to get both packages your box has to stay on the old
software-version with all bugs. You can get a software-change by Bakker
Electronics, Netherlands, which closes your box for unwanted df1 updates and
is able to receive different national packages and scpc-signals. Look at

2. Look at "in-sat" via http://www.tele-satellit.com and click online
reading of in-sat. On dec.29 I stored here a english translation of MikeŽs
internal manual description.
