This has kind of been an ongoing project and accumulation of notes that I have gathered and read while testing the receiver. I wish I could say that I was the one who found all coolast tricks and methods on what makes the IRD do its thing, but I can not, so credit goes to a lot of testers that have communicated and shared what they knew and found about this new receiver. As of the date of this revision to the manual, the ,anual Plus has long been dropped from production and sold on the market.
Therefore, specific reference to the Plus model will no longer be made in the manual and as a general note, except for 55000 factory bins, all files and coolsxt of the Plus Model were carried over to the newer Pro Model, thus there is no need to worry about mixing up bin or channel data flashes between the two.
Also since the last version of the manual we have seen the introduction of the new Coolsat Platinum Coolxat with Conexant Brazos Processor meaning more speed in channel changing and EPG. As with anything new, the Pro Model has had some up grades from the Plus Model, cooleat upgrades are continued with the Platinum Model. 55000 main difference between the receivers is that the Pro Model and Platinum Model use the RSc straight modem transfer cable, whereas the Plus Model uses the null modem crossed transfer cable.
Both Models use the same modified bins, however the Coolsat requires its own exclusive modified bin made for the Platinum Model.
Except as noted, applications in this manual apply to all Coolsat Models. Before going any further, it is noted this Manual is not intended to be a Noobie Guide to the general universal applications used in FTA Receiver testing but only as a guide to using the Coolsat Receiver assuming the Tester has some basic understanding of setting up and pointing the dish and how to route the manjal from the lnb to the receiver with switches and setting the signal path in the Dish Setting Window for each satellite in the receiver.
My intent is not to reinvent the wheel and if you need further background in understanding FTA applications, I highly recommend these sources for further reading and they will be found posted in many of the forums that support FTA testing.
Since maanual of the Coolsat into the community we have seen the major providers convert from the N1 encryption to N2 encryption with an increase of bytes used in the key string going from 16 bytes to 32 bytes. Key lines in the CAS that used to hold an active and inactive key now consist of 4 lines to hold the keys with each key divided into 2 strings of 16 bytes each. As before, usually we will see one key active and the other inactive although we have seen instances where dish was running two active key strings at mmanual time with the N2 encryption.
We have seen the original third party coders for Coolsat move to support a different receiver and a new group of coders come on the scene with Coolsat support with release of the new Super Bin for Coolsat. The future of continuing Coolsat support looks very encouraging with an excellent and proven ability of the group to prepare files manuap to the requirements required to decrypt the N2 encryption.
Some of these innovations will be noted later in this manual. Coolsat Pro Loader Tool A nice feature of the loading tool for the Coolsat is its ability to manuao all flash files with just one tool. The receiver will not or need to reboot after flashes.

Coolsat by default, checks signal strength on Transponder 1. Ontransponder 1 is a spot beam transponder and many of you will 9 not get a signal on Transponder 1. Coolsat will now automatically check for signal strength on the next active transponder.
When antenna setting for the satellite is complete, press exit to save and confirm. Exit out of menu. The following is an illustration of a Single Legacy Setting Setup. Note the following illustration shows no signal being received with signal indicator in red and no satellite name appears in the upper right hand of the dish setting window since this satellite is not connected on my antenna system at this time.

When using a Dishpro Twin or Quad with an additional lnb antenna system with more than 3 lnbs in usethe external 4×1 diseqc switch must be used with two cables run from and sides each of the Dishpro lnb to the switch.
