Hi there,

I have my new Lifetime Ultra motor system installed and running.
Really neat piece of gear! I don't understand though, the different
types of scans the receiver will do. The choices are: scanning from
the satellite installation page, TP scan, network scan and something
called "power scan". I have got a lot of channels already, but there
are some I think I should be getting that I'm not. I looked at the
manual for the receiver, but it isn't much help. Any help you could
offer would be appreciated.

TP Scan- scans one freq that has been previously entered.
Network scan- will scan freqs on a sat already pre programed.
Power Scan- Also known as blind search. Will search range of freqs/SRs
on both polarities of a sat. Finds things that are not pre programed.

TP scans means "transponder scan", it searches only channels within the same
transponder of which you have to enter the main parameters (frequency and
polarisation,).
Network scan finds quickly the channels (without complete scan of the band)
on a given satellite by looking for the the so-called "DVB-NIT" (Network
Information Table) which contains the details of the various channels
available.
It's mainly used in Europe by satellites like Astra or Hot Bird which are
intended for direct reception.
I do not think that FSS satellites carry NIT since they are generally not
intended for direct reception.
I assume that "power scan" is probably the same as "blind scan".

blind scan options,
all, both fta and data
fta, free to air
D, data

Thanks to all who replied. I understand much more now.. The receiver
manual is not too good. If they only had a few descriptions of what
they were talking about in the scanning procedures..
