Hi all sorry to bother you all with yet another snipe problem It will find astra 2 for a couple of seconds then goes into fine tune mode then it looses it then goes into other sat
I would like to turn off fine tune but can't see how to do it in the book does anybody know how to do it
Also if the type c control box is needing to go for repair can anyone recommend a repair company

Having the same type of problem, got an update but needs a usb connection which ours doesn’t have. Also looking for somewhere or someone who repairs Snipe systems so hoping you get yours fixed and any information would be helpful

I had the same problem last night from Northern France. It eventually locked on ok to 28.2.
Haven’t tried doing the update yet as didn’t want to risk making things worse while I am away.

Sounds like a Snipe one, you do the update via a program you download from the Snipe site and connect your pc via a usb A to Be lead. The software needs XP it won't run in later operating systems.

If not looking on to Astra 2, try turning to Hotbird and if it locks on them change to Astra 2 it often works.
If it locks on but picture pixelated you can fine tune manually.

This has happened on the odd occasion with ours, we just find Astra 1 then try 2 and it locks on all the time. Will look at the update.

Ours did this when it was still under guarantee, so returned it to the supplier and it in our case it was a cable to the LNB internally that had broken. They repaired it, sent it back to us and it has worked fine since.
