Instructions for a Pansat 2700a
By Dean Lee
The Pansat 2700a is a receiver to view television programming via satellite feeds. You can also view standard (non-satellite) feeds using a standard antenna and a digital converter box. The Pansat 2700a does not have a digital tuner, so the digital converter box is required. The Pansat 2700a can receive thousands of channels via satellite, even those from other countries. Although programming from other countries uses different broadcast standards, the 2700a automatically converts the programming so that it will display properly on your TV.
Connect a coaxial cable from the satellite dish to the "IF INPUT" jack on the back of the Pansat 2700a.
Connect a coaxial cable from the standard (non-satellite) antenna to the "ANT IN" jack on the back of a Digital Converter box. Connect a second coaxial cable from the "TO TV" jack on the back of the Digital Converter box to the "ANT IN" jack on the back of the Pansat 2700a.
Connect a coaxial cable from the "TV OUT" jack on the back of the Pansat 2700a to the "ANT IN" jack on the back of the TV.
Turn on the TV and the Pansat 2700a. Change the TV channel to "3."
Press the arrow buttons on your Pansat 2700a remote to select the desired language, then press "OK."
Press the arrow buttons to select your satellite antenna, then press "OK."
Select "Standard for USA," then press "OK."
Select "Satellite Scan," then press "OK." The receiver will scan for channels. After scanning is complete, you can view the channels using the 2700a remote control.
