Last update:

2/7/97 Current software revision ( Sept.-1996 ) is: PT# 16-5292-1G, System Version: PAL 09-26-95 V122. Added NVRAM restore/save in Menu 6.

Chaparral does not support the MC115 inside the USA. We recommend that purchasers inside the United States return the receiver to the distributor it was purchased from as it is not FCC approved for use in the United States.

PROBLEM:

How do you master clear or erase all stored information in the receivers database?

SOLUTION:

You should not re-initialize (master clear) the receiver unless you have a memory card or have a valid file to transfer from a computer. Current¬†databases¬†are available through our web site or from your equipment provider. Place the receiver in the standby mode. (Standby light on the front panel must be lit.) Press and hold the channel up and down keys on the front panel. While holding the channel keys, press and hold the front panel power key. The receiver should turn back on. Release all the keys. If you are viewing the main video output, you will see the message “DB INIT”. After the receiver is finished with the re-init, turn it back on, check the clock and reload the database.

PROBLEM:

Receiver keeps doing a database init every time its plugged in to the AC or after a power outage.

SOLUTION:

The capacitor supplying voltage to the ram is below the operating range. Leave the receiver plugged in for 1 hour and retest. The capacitor will hold the receivers memory for 24 to 48 hrs. without power.

PROBLEM:

Receivers database keeps getting corrupted when using Inclined Orbit Tracking option.

SOLUTION:

Update firmware to version 16-5292-1G or higher.
