    What do you mean "off the web"?

    What was missing from the supplied xml?

    Put your file in /etc/enigma2 ... and don't forget to keep it up to date.

    Remove it and the box will drop back to the supplied system file.

    Yes the xml files of the web.

    I reflashed my box et8500 as its was too slow and hanging when starting, also saved sat scans went missing.
    So after usb reflash it went thru wizzard and asked to scan for sats So I chose simple with multiscan option and selected my sats from 1.93e to 75w as a manual scan.

    Then after setup, when clicking on tv remote button secting green button for sats and then extention option list all my sats it only shows 39e to 30w?

    So thought I would try the sat xml site entered my longitude and latitude which gave me results form 76.5E to 75W so downloaded that xml into etc/enigma2

    Still not picked up that sat range only shows 39e to 30w,

    After loadig the xml file I did not rescan or should I do that?

    ..... use the simple_1080 skin for the time being, to avoid your box hanging.

    What satellite dishes are you using? Have you got a clear line of site to the arc you are trying to scan? Is the dish set up properly?

    What are you trying to receive between 30W and 75W as there is pretty much nothing there for people that live in Europe?
    Same after 39E, maybe a bit from the 42E west beam.

    Also if your dish is set up wrong most like that will show worse at either end of the arc.
