How to select a preset on the Cisco satellite receiver

Last Updated: 28 August 2018 at 10:20

SUMMARY:

When an FM group receives a new Cisco receiver, they will need to select a preset (a profile containing satellite carrier information) based on their location and where their dish is pointed.

CAUSE:
This setup process is needed because Cisco isn't responsible for selecting an FM Group's carrier information. When the FM receives it, they will simply select the preset to establish a signal with the satellite in order for the receiver to be registered.

SOLUTION:
Using either the remote or the front of the receiver:

1.     Press Menu

2.     Select Setup Menu


 

3.     Select Tuning / Preset


 

4.     Select Preset (or press the yellow button using the remote)


 

5.     Select the correct Preset Number (1-9) based on the options below and select Activate


 

6.     Here are the available Presets:

7.     After selecting Activate on the Preset/LNB Setup menu, a change confirmation window will appear. To accept the changes, press OK or to cancel select Exit or Menu if you're using the front of the receiver
