The Maxview Automatic Satellite systems use the data broadcast by the Satellite providers to identify the correct Satellite and allow the system to lock on to your chosen satellite successfully. Unfortunately from time to time the providers make data changes which are out of Maxview’s control and this may affect the function of your Maxview system to lock onto the desired Satellite. Maxview monitors this situation and we will always offer free lifetime software support. Therefore in such an event you can rest assured you will be able to update your automatic satellite system for continued trouble free viewing. We have made this process easy with the USB update system on the Target and Seeker Satellite systems.
Do I require a software update?
The latest software changes are listed below. Therefore in the event that your Satellite system has a problem locking onto a chosen Satellite we recommend you check here first just in case it is a change in Satellite data causing the viewing issue.
