It's time for returning GLS sites to SELF TEST your satellite system. It's a pretty simple process, but will require some extra steps this year before you can test. Since last summer, the ABC News Channels have moved - and added two HD channels. Overall it's a great thing, but it will require that you download a new channel list to your HDVR 1200 receiver. Here's a short video explaining the five minute process.
If you would rather READ than WATCH, please go to the Downloads page by clicking on Downloads" in the menu to the left. Once there, look for FIRMWARE UPDATES and click on the "Instructions for GLS 2016 Channel List". Or, just click here. It will explain the simple process. Once you have updated your channel list, you can tune to the N1-N4 (News 1 through News 4) channels to confirm that you have signal. Channels N3 & N4 are HD (720p). As always, once you have tested, please click on the Report Test Results button on this page and report your results.
