HiTV is no longer transmitting signals and as such there are lots of HiTv decoders  lying derelict. These decoders can still be put to good use to enjoy a few stations.

In this post we will give graphic details of how you can use yours with your antenna (dish) to watch free to air channels all by yourself.

We assume that your dish is still pointed to the position where it was receiving the HiTV signals which is the same position Dstv also operates from.

Here is how you can scan your decoder to watch these channels:

Press [MENU] on your remote control unit (RCU)

Press [OK] on Installation

Enter Pin Code [0000]

Go to [TP Setup] and Press [OK]

Satellite EUTELSAT

Scroll to TP(Freq/SR)

Use the right volume button (VOL+) to access the box on the right side of your screen

Press [OK] on any of the values 12092[H]27500 and 12130[H]27500 excluded.

In the box that appears, do the following:

Mode Edit

Scroll down to frequency and input the numbers [12437]

Symbol Rate input the numbers [23437]

Polarity [H] use the VOL+ to change

Press [OK] to save

Use the left volume button (VOL-) to scroll back to TP [Freq/SR]

Scroll down to Scan All Channels and Press [OK]

Press [OK] to save after scanning the channels.

 

Repeat the above procedure for each of the following frequencies and symbol rates:

FREQ [11843] SR [27500] POL [VER]
FREQ [12034] SR [27500] POL [VER]
FREQ [11860] SR [27500] POL [HOR]
FREQ [11939] SR [27500] POL [HOR]

NOTE: Take note of these frequencies you have added to the decoder so as not to change them

while adding others.

The Free to Air stations include:

LCF, EBRU, GOLFE TV, ORTB TV, LOVEWORLD PLUS, OH TV, OLIVE TV, CCTV DOC, CCTV NEWS, CCTV 4, CCTV F, DSTV DISH

 

USING YOUR HITV DECODER FOR OTHER SATELLITE SERVICES

You can equally use your HITV decoder for other satellite services ranging from free to air channels to other smart card enabled services. What you need is a signal and the frequency(s) from the satellite servce provider.
