INSTALLING THE MOUNT
1. Assemble the H-H Mount as the following diagram.

2. Ensure the mounting tube indicates 0°. If not, sit it to exactly 0° using the manual buttons on the bottom of the mount. The cable must be connected to the receiver which must be switched on. 3. Make sure the mounting pole is exactly vertical before installation. 4. Fix the H-H Mount onto the Mounting pole or stand and tighten the two U-bolts evenly. Make sure there is no obstacle facing the southern sky, such as a tree or building.

ALIGNMENT OF THE MOUNT
1. Finding TRUE SOUTH. Attaching the Antenna Dish to the Mount. Make sure the dish is at the center of the mounting tube. Rotate the mount together with the antenna toward TRUE SOUTH. You can find the TRUE SOUTH using the magnetic variation table and a compass that indicates the MAGNETIC SOUTH. 2. Setting Elevation Angle.(A) Adjust the motor elevation angle using an inclinoneter or the Latitude scale on one sides of the Motor according to the Latitude of your position. 3. Setting Declination Angle.(B) • Find the Declination Angle on the attached ANGLE TABLE. • Set the Declination Angle by the scale on the antenna dish. The reading on the antenna scale should be: 35°-DECLINATION ANGLE 4. Drive the antenna east and west via the manual buttons on the bottom of the Mount to check if the reception arc is correct. If not, adjust the direction, elevation, and declination angle to find the best reception. P.S. To ensure power to drive the antenna, first connect the Mount to the receiver or interface box via coaxial cable.

ADJUST THE TUBE LOOSE
If you incur the problem of loose tube, follow the procedure to solve it: 1.Loosen the 4 screws (#1 on the picture) a little 2.Tighten the screw (#2 on the picture) a little. 3.Tighten the 4 screws (#1 on the picture) securely

CABLE CONNECTION
Connect the DiSEqC Mount and the coaxial cable (RG-6/U) per the following diagram.

DiSEqC 1.2 OPERATION
The DISEqC Motor is designed for DiSEqC 1.2 Receiver. The commands of the receivers might be different, but similar. Please refer to the manual of the DiSEqC 1.2 receiver. 1.Go East / West: Rotates the antenna to East / West. 2.Fine Tune East / West: Rotates the antenna East / West for one step. 3.Store nn: Store Satellites Position nn (01~60). 4.Goto nn: Rotates Motor to Satellite Position nn (01~60). 5.Goto 0°:Rotates the Motor to 0° as a reference point. 6.Re-synchronize / Shift: (a)Rotate the motor to a position by Goto command. (b)Rotate the motor East / West to a better position. (c)Send Re-synchronize commands to the motor. The original position will be shifted to the new position. All the other Satellite positions are also changed.

Goto X Function
1.See your receiver manual and select the type of installation in Goto X mode. 2.Fill in the empty spaces in the receiver’s menu with the Latitude and Longitude values. When the values have been correctly received, the receiver drives the Motor to the calculated position. 3.Rotate the locked together antenna and motor slightly clockwise or anticlockwise until you find an image on the TV-screen connected to the receiver or the signal and quality, and then tighten the fixing screws.

LED INDICATOR
The 2 LED indicators on the bottom of the motor can show the following information: Function Power on Drive East Drive West Halt Store Call East Limit West Limit Limit off Goto X Stop East Limit Stop West Limit Status LED1 & LED2 Blink every 2 Seconds LED1 Blinks once LED2 Blinks once LED1 & LED2 Blink once LED1 Blinks Twice LED2 Blinks Twice LED1 Blinks 3 times LED2 Blinks 3 times LED1 & LED2 Blink 3 times LED1 & LED2 Blink 4 times LED1 Keeps Blinking LED2 Keeps Blinking

HARDWARE RESET BY RECEIVER
1. Execute the command: Go To Reference (Go To “0”). 2. Cut off the power by disconnecting the coaxial cable. 3. Reconnect the coaxial cable. 4. Execute the command: Shift “0”. 5. Then, its memory erased, the receiver rewrites the satellite table to initial one and corrects the “0”

HARDWARE RESET BY DiSEqC MOTOR
1. Cut off the power by disconnecting the coaxial cable. 2. Press and hold both EAST / WEST buttons for 5 seconds. 3. Reconnect the coaxial cable. 4. LED1 and LED2 blink for 5 seconds. 5. Then, its memory erased, the receiver rewrites the satellite table to initial one and corrects the “0”

BUILT-IN SATELLITE TABLE RESET
1. Press and hold both EAST / WEST buttons for 5 seconds. 2. LED1 and LED2 blink for 5 seconds. 3. Then, its memory erased and rewrites the built-in Satellite table to initial one.

Troubleshooting the H-H Mount
Symptoms The manual buttons don’t work Check points 1. Connect the Motor to the receiver via coaxial cable first and make sure the receiver power is on. 1. Ensure all cables and power are connected well. 2. Check if the receiver is DiSEqC 1.2. If not, try to use our interface box. 3. Check whether the dish is too heavy.

The Mount doesn’t work

1. Disable the software limits and move the motor again. The Mount stops at some positions 2. Make sure the Mount or antenna are not interfered with and can’t go farther any other item. 1. Make sure the antenna is not too heavy or too large. 2. Check if the cable quality is good enough. Try a better RG6U cable. 3. Check whether the output power of the receiver is higher than 350mA.

The Mount runs intermittently

The Mount sometimes runs fast and 1. The speed of the Mount varies with receiver output voltage (13/18Vdc) sometimes runs slowly 1. Correct this problem via the “Goto 0”Function, the Mount will go to 0 degree as a reference point. OR All satellite positions are not correct. 2. Goto a satellite position via receiver or interface box. Wait for about 30 seconds until the motor stops. 3. Drive the antenna East or West until the reception of this satellite is clear. 4. Use “Re-calculate” or “Shift” Function to correct position.
