I already Have humax freesat set up on disecq so all the cables and switch are in place.
Or is it a case of just tuning them in.
I did not use disecq,
I use a seperate dish for Saorsat (80cm) and a zone 1 dish for Freesat with humax hdr,
I used a direct line for saorsat, combining Saorsat with terestrial freeview from Wales on the Walker.
Boards user phelixoflaherty has set up saorsat on the humax hdr with freesat using disecq.
It has been reported that on the Humax hdr, saorsat had no epg information.
I have found the Walker combo (Saorsat approved) to be the best box with Saorsat, I suppose having RTE Digital aertel is the biggest advantage.
Both the Walker and the Humax are capable of disecq.
You may have to use a specific port for saorsat on a disecq switch, I think I read that somewhere.
Setting up Saorsat
I aligned the dish and universal Lnb to 9E, as I do not have a meter for the Ka Lnb
Swapped the lnb with the new Saorsat lnb.
I'm using an 80cm dish for Saorsat in Wexford.
You may have to fine tune the dish gently moving east/west and elevation, also moving the lnb in and out can give a better signal which can make a difference in rain.
Depending on receiver for example:
With the triax 114 combo - I did a blind scan on 9E and the Saorsat channels came in.
With the Ferguson arivaHD - I had to add a "fake" frequency 10.765 vertical on 9E to get Saorsat channels.
On the walker combo it had Eutelsat Ka-sat 9A(9.0E) on the satellite list for tuning.
If you are trying to have the Saorsat lnb off centre you may need a bigger dish than 80cm for rain fade depending on your location, in Cork or Kerry even bigger again.
