The HUMAX Freesat Foxsat HD & HDR have hidden menus to access other satellites on a fixed dish pointed at another satellite, controldiseqc switches to view up to 4 satellites on one or several dishes, all pointing to different satellites with 1000s of channels (one can be Freesat) orcontrol motors to access up to 40 satellites and 1000s of free SD & HD channels from around Europe & around the world & still use the main Freesat features on Freesat at any time & with one of, if not the most sensitive receivers there are allowing access to some of the weakest channels & hidden broadcaster feeds.

These options aren't detailed in the manual so we have detailed some of them here as these questions are asked so many times.


To use with a motorised installation - these proceedures require the Foxsat  HD or HDr to be connected to a correctly installed motorised satellite system.

Now you can start to enable & scan/ setup each satellite & your motor if it's a new installation.

(The USALS on the Foxsat requires an accurate installation as it lacks some editing of USALS satellite positions- to get more motor control & editing facilities you should consider using the less automated diseqc 1.2 option which requires you to find & store the position of each satellite- a process that becomes quite easy once you have got started- SEE DISEQC 1.2 MOTOR CONTROL picture below....).

Once paired up to a correctly installed motorised satellite system, the Foxsat HD & HDr becomes quite a formidable FREE TO AIR motorised satellite system offering all the top features of the UK's FREESAT service in HD with all the digital teletext news & weather services & 8 day electronic program guide with in-built record options on the HDr for the FREESAT channels including recording one channel while watching another in FREESAT mode and at a flick of switch change to non freesat mode to travel the satellites on the motorised side with one of the most [if not 'the' most] sensitive receivers on the market to help get the weaker satellites & receive HD & SD ON DVBS2 streams.... and at any time flicking back to FREESAT mode will automatically drive the motorised dish back to FREESAT and all at very high picture quality.
