Before reading, I assume you already have a Multi TV subscription or intend to do so and that you have read my earlier blog posts on Multi TV. Else, you should read Multi TV Ghana, a new free digital satellite TV and Early review of Multi TV + Satellite information before reading this post.
The principle is very simple. Multi TV signals reach your decoder from a satellite called Astra 2B, located at 28.2°E. Multi Tv is not the only broadcaster on that satellite. There are a few others. Following the steps enumerated below, you would be tweaking your Multi TV decoder to recognize those other signals so you can enjoy the other broadcasts.
To start: You need a fully installed Multi TV system.
- Press MENU on your MultiTV remote control
- Select INSTALLATION
- Select EDIT SATELLITE
- Click on the Yellow button to “Add” a new satellite. A new dialog box should appear titled “Add Satellite”.
- Fill the “Add Satellite” box using the information below and then select YES:
- Satellite: Astra 2B
- Longitude: 101 E
- Frequency: 12572
- Symbol Rate: 2854

- Astra 2B should now appear in the list of Satellites under the EDIT SATELLITE menu. Select Astra 2B and press OK.
- Under EDIT TRANSPONDER, Press the Yellow button and enter the follow values on step at a time:
