Setting Zip Code for Local Weather on the 8’s

Entertainment May 6, 2020

Caution: Remote controls are not supplied with your equipment because hitting one button can affect or change the channels on all the satellite receivers.

Extreme care must be used to try not to do this. Follow instructions carefully. You will only need the remote for entering numbers.

1) On the front of your weather channel receiver, press the active button. Wait about 30 seconds for information to fill in.

2) On the front of your weather channel receiver, using the up, down, left right, buttons, highlight “weather”. It is the second item on the left side of the screen. Press select.

3) On the front of your weather channel receiver, using the up, down, left right, buttons, scroll to “my cities”. It is at the top right of the screen. Press select.

4) On the front of your weather channel receiver, using the up, down, left right, buttons, go to “change my home zip”. Press select.

5) Now, using remote. Cup your hand around the front transmitter portion and hold near the receiving eye in the receiver. The idea is to not affect the other receivers. Using the number pad, enter your zip code. Then press submit, using the select button on the receiver.

6) Now check to make sure you have not changed channels on any other receivers. If so they will need to be put back on the correct channel.
