  1. Hi , I am using HD+ setup box , Antenna aligned to NSS 6, Now only few tamil channels are avaliable, No tamil news channel ,
    If i change to ST2, will i get all tamil channels? what will happen to other north channel?

    Please advise.

    1. You will be able to get all the Tamil channels offered by D2h (Formally known as Videocon D2h). Prior to switching make sure your STB is compatible for ST2 satellite. Further all the north channels offered by d2h is available after switching to ST2 satellite.

  2. Hi I am using D-7000 HD dish NXT HD set top box. Since Sunday evening, I got 301 error in all free channels like malayalam news channels and others. What am I do for that please reply

    1. “301 Signal not found” error is a technical error, it caused because the signal is not getting through to set-top box. There are several reasons for that, some of those are as follows: dish not properly aligned or misaligned, damaged signal cable, the cable is not properly connected to the set-top box, weak or damaged LNBF, due to cloudy climate or rainy condition, faulty Set-top-box, etc…, so request you to check on these issues first and rectify it.

  3. I am zing digital tv subscriber from kerala. I got only few malayalam channels. If possible to change st2 alignment satilate for enjoying more malayalam channels. Possible if Please help me

    1. To switch your connection to ST2 Satellite, you must have an ST2 satellite compatible Zing Set-top box (Mpeg4 Compression Set-top box). If your set-top box is Mpeg2 compression then you won’t be able to switch to the ST2 satellite.

    I am using D-7000 NXT HD box, since 21st July I am not getting Channel No.1975, please advise whether I have to align the external dish?

    1. AF6012s is Mpeg4 STB, If your intention is to change this STB to ST2, then we recommend not to do so because once you change it to ST2 it will work fine for 1 or 2 months then this particular model will stop working, then it can not be reverted to NSS6 either.

  8. Hi, i am using D-5004 NXT HD set top box at Kuwait. Presently i set with SES-8 and very few south indian Malayalam channels only i am getting. So plans to change it to ST-2 @Kuwait to get more south Indian Malayalam channels. Is inpossible to do, if so How we can set it?
