How to add more TV & Radio channels to your Multi TV decoder

Before reading, I assume you already have a Multi TV subscription or intend to do so and that you have read my earlier blog posts on Multi TV. Else, you should read Multi TV Ghana, a new free digital satellite TV and Early review of Multi TV + Satellite information before reading this post.

A Multi TV dish

A Multi TV dish

The principle is very simple. Multi TV signals reach your decoder from a satellite called Astra 2B, located at 28.2°E. Multi Tv is not the only broadcaster on that satellite. There are a few others. Following the steps enumerated below, you would be tweaking your Multi TV decoder to recognize those other signals so you can enjoy the other broadcasts.

To start: You need a fully installed Multi TV system.

  1. Press MENU on your MultiTV remote control
  4. Click on the Yellow button to “Add” a new satellite. A new dialog box should appear titled “Add Satellite”.
  5. Fill the “Add Satellite” box using the information below and then select YES:
    • Satellite: Astra 2B
    • Longitude: 101 E
    • Frequency: 12572
    • Symbol Rate: 2854
    • Polarization: V (Press the Right button to change the polarization from H to V)
  6. Astra 2B should now appear in the list of Satellites under the EDIT SATELLITE menu. Select Astra 2B and press OK.
  7. Under EDIT TRANSPONDER, Press the Yellow button and enter the follow values on step at a time:
    Frequency       Symbol Rate          Polarization
    12572                   2854                         V
    12599                   3250                         V
    12729                   2725                         V
  8. Press Exit twice.
  9. Press Menu > Installation > Install Satellite > Green Button (Scan)
  10. You should now see 13 TV and 9 Radio stations. That’s it!

In addition to the 10 TV and 7 Radio channels from Multi TV, the following are available when you follow the steps above.

  • GTV (Ghana TV): the state-owned broadcaster that offers general programming including news, sports, music, movies,  and more.
  • CRTV: a Christian-themed TV station that offers news, documentaries, movies and more
  • LTM TV: A Cameroonian TV station that offers news & entertainment in both English and French.
  • Uniiq (FM) Accra: A radio service offered by state-owned Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC). It features news, entertainment, government propaganda and more.
  • Royal Radio: A Christian-themed radio service offering general Christian programming, especially music.

Should you have any questions, simply post them in the comments area. Happy viewing…

  1. Lucky says

    I want to know what you will do with the newly trained multi tv instalers.Will they be given certificates?HOW AND WHERE WILL THEY WORK?HOW MUCH SHOULD THEY CHARGE FOR ONE INSTALLATION?

  2. William Mensah says

    Ghanaians are ready to enjoy anything cooked right from their own pot but i think your team should practice atleast something extra. Hitz tv is just too boring, the music video everyday. Is that what they do on radio?. Go out for more videos please

  3. Tony, Accra says

    My concerns with multi tv are signal strength is low as 50-53 & quality arround 39-44 is that the reason i do receive poor quality video?

    2.I wish if aljazeera could be given 24/7 chnnel because of their news coverage. Please help

      • Kwasi Boateng says

        Olu, your blog is very revealing. The problem with installers is that some are not professional at all. You ask them to come at 5 and they show up at 9. I want to avoid them. Can you write on how to tune my dish?

    • says

      The principle is very simple. Your satellite decoder must be MPEG4 compatible. If it isn’t, you won’t be able to watch all the channels. Also, your dish must be pointed towards Astra 2B.

      • seedorf says

  58. seedorf says

    I was able to unlock RDV but its not producing audio sound. Niyi, please advice on how to get the sound production. Note: All other INF channels produces audio sound after i had installed the adviced driver for audio.

    pls advice on RDV and if there is any other codes available for any other channels not minding if its SS or any other pls do post so we cud do the needful.

    God bless u as u take away pains and bring information to the poor.

    U ar Blessed boyound measure in Jesus name.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello bro. Just press the audio button on the remote control and shift in between the audio 1,2 3, and come back to 1. You should have sound.

  59. adjabui says

    i use a strong 4669x decoder with a 90cm dish, is it possible 4 me to receive signals on nss w7, especially tv3, tv africa, viasat1 etc. am in northern Ghana, specifically upper east.kindly let me know.

  60. Nesk says

    Hi, I stay in south-south Nigeria and just install multi tv and wanted to receive more channels and have done blind scan as directed on this forum but still receiving only 10 TV channels. I am currently using dstv 1.8 pan and the multi tv decoder model is MDVB-S9800 MPEG2/H.264 compatible decoder. Please I need a reply ASAP and thanks for the job you are doing on this forum.

    N/B: My interest is in EPL, Nigeria and western movies.

  61. sam says

    please add more tv channels like espn, movie magic, MTV base, reality, metro, etv, etv ghana, super sport, mnet and hallmark.

  62. Bernard Boateng says

    please Mr. David, am using strong srt 4669x mpeg4 decoder and am able to get some channel on dstv. There is this channel called RDV from Senegal, I used to have the pictures but I rescan my decoder and I have lost the pictures. I was wondering if you could help me get the pictures back. Thank you

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Bernard, RDV is encrypted.Whatever did like resetting your decoder was responsible for that. As you are using an SRT4669x just update your decoder and go through this thread and you will find how to reconnect to RDV and premiership soccer. Bon Sior

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello please go through this thread and you will find the firmware software. A dstv card costs Ghc45.00. Go to any accredited agent and buy.

  63. fred agyemang says

    my multiv decoder restarts without any provocation and even after restarting it continues the restarting without stopping.
    when it happens like that i have to put it off & unplug it for not less than 30min. before i can now put on and start watching it. pls advise me on what to do

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Did you attach a usb to the decoder or try updating the decoder? Well whatever happened a bug has attached itself to your decoder software. Try resetting the decoder and if that fails send it to Multi Tv with your receipt for assistance.

  64. Marvyn says

    I get other channels on my multy tv but can’t get sound wat shld i gtv wount work and can’t get


    why can’t we get the other channels tv3, metro tv, and the rest on our multitv decoders?
    Also, some of the chnnels, you can see the pictures but no sound and others too sounds come but no pictures.
    Please help us because the reason why we bought multi tv is to get crtv and we were hoping that, other channels like the one mentioned earlier will be added, but we were just deceived.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello. Maybe you should have bought a strong decoder SRT4669X. A multi TV decoder will only by right give you multi TV signals and channels.You cannot complain.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      No, my brother. Just get the decoder and connect it. You will have to do a blind scan though, to get the Multi TV channels and other channels on the satellite band/ frequency. Should be around 28 channels with 3 encrypted.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello. The parameters for the new CRTV is FREQUENCY: 12552, SYMBOL RATE:19531, and POLARITY: VERTICAL.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello. from what I know, strong 4663 is Mpeg 2 but should be able to access CRTV. Please try updating your decoder and lets see what happens. Note that CRTV is back after re organizing its operations and could be using improved video codecs as their picture quality have improved drastically.

  66. Spencer Churchill says

    Please just do a rescan of your decoder and you will have it. But I will post the freq and SR within 24 hours. They are not back on the same frequency so scan and get it or wait for my next post on the issue tomorrow.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello Charles. For updated firmware for your strong SRT4669X please go to this site and select the software listed as Its a zip file so you need to unzip it and then upload it onto your pen drive.

      After unzipping it, put the resultant software on the pen drive and upload it to your decoder. Make sure there is no power surge or failure during the updating. This is the latest software and was uploaded on Christmas eve.

      Good luck.

  68. shine says

    Hi D, I very much apprciate the gud work u r doing by sharing this wealth of knwldge in this area. my multi tv dec has abt 29 chnls with some showing blank screens and alot more with pics and no sound. pls how do i get the sound for such stations.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      RDV is on Eutelsat W4/7 at 36 degrees East. This is the same satellite that hosts Multi Choice’s DSTV. You will need a FTA decoder preferably a Strong SRT4669X decoder, with the dish set to receive Eutelsat W4/7 satellite signals. After a blind scan you will find RDV as one of the channels.

      How to get RDV.

      Press 8280 on your remote while on the RDV channel, this will show the BISS key panel/window on your TV screen
      Scroll down to Row no. 19 All the numbers on this row are oooooooooooooooooo,

      Just replace the 1st 16 nos with these numbers (RDV Key): 00 01 48 49 00 01 48 49 to unlock the signal.
      Press exit, YES when prompted to save changes.
      Enjoy RDV. I hope this ends the RDV questions on this thread. Please read all the postings to first check for a solution failing which you post the question. Thanks to all.

  69. Onichakwe David Andy says

    Pls are there new channels added as at Jan.1st 2011/ how are my going to to get them. i heard Crtv is back i have added the tv but is showin bad signal . what do i do?

    • Spencer Churchill says

      CRTV is on a new frequency and new symbol rate. Please rescan your decoder.To enter the settings manually use this.The parameters for the new CRTV is FREQUENCY: 12552, SYMBOL RATE:19531, and POLARITY: VERTICAL.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Most likely as its on the DSTV band. Just make sure you have an FTA decoder preferably a strong SRT4669X and on Eutelsat W4/7.But note the transmission is in french and may only be good for EPL or sports. It may interest you to note that they showed Italian league yesterday since there were no EPL matches but FA.

    • says

      You should have confirmed the channels from DStv before choosing a bouquet. You’d still have to call them for the right bouquet that contains the channels you want.

  91. Aguti Reuben says

    my friends can watch some of Dstv channels on their multi TV through the help of some software. how can get some of the software to install on my Multi TV?

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Aguti,I can assure you that there is no software for what you are talking about. What I know of is that a double LNB is fixed on a single dish fixed to recieve Astra 2A at 28 degrees east and Eutelsat W4/7 at 36 degrees east. You can scan for both Multi TV and DSTV and watch both transmissions but you need an activated and fully paid up subscription for DSTV.

      If they are watching DSTV free,then that is illegal and we do not encourage illegal FTA viewing but legal FTA like multi tv, etc.

  92. JAMES says

    @Spencer Churchill he didn’t mention he/his friend were watching dstv for free. unless u have something else in mind. is cctv, ohtv etc not fta? remember they are in Eutelsat W4/7 at 36 degrees east

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Kindly read the answer I gave again. I said IF and not that they were actually doing that.

      If they are watching DSTV free,then that is illegal and we do not encourage illegal FTA viewing but legal FTA like multi TV, etc.

      Whatever you watch, when talking about it be specific as to whether FTA or encrypted signals that have become temporarily FTA. Anyone commenting on it can then make an informed comment.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Pilato SRT4669XII costs around $120.00 US dollars in Ghana And is available from Platinum Satellite Opposite Frankie’s on the Oxford Street at Osu R.E. in Accra.

  101. JAMES says

    @Paracletos use this link
    e.g in your location enter lagos,niheria
    in all satellite enter choose 28.5e eurobird 1.
    if your address is already in Google earth, u can locate your house and put the dish where u want it to be on the screen before installation.
    good luck

  102. Tony says

    I had this strong decoder,a 4669x model without a smartcard for almost four months then decide to get one today.when i inserted the smartcard,mytv encryted signal(those with d dollar sign) didnt display. These included eurosport,trace and likes.i returned it only for it to work on d smart card dealer’s personal decoder which looked a lot older than mine. I would appreciate some help.

  103. says

    HI Spencer Churchill,
    I was told the upgraded version now for the strong decoder is 4669z. Is it true?
    And which type of strong decoder is the best in the market now?

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Reuben, the best Strong decoder yet is the SRT4669X. Its versatile and reliable. Its truly strong, not just by name. The other 4669 whether Z or II, has software problems and does not respond to upgrades of software and keys like the good old SRT4669.

      All upgrades of software start with SRT4669x before the other 4669 receivers. I hope this answers your question or go to and click on the first topic and compare products.

      • James Ayarik says

        i have strong 4663X. it was working with a 2008 version of firmware. as soon as i upgraded to the 2011 firmware all channells refused to open. can anyone send me the 2008 or 2009 softwares to enable me revers the upgrade?

  104. seedorf says

    4669z is actually out but I don’t think its d best cos I have it and yet all my infinity channels are still blocked. @Niyi, pls update d house if there is any solution as regards those Infinity channels.

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Hello Seedorf, infinity will remain scrambled no matter what we do or say. They must start reaping their investments. Lets try to forget them for now.

  105. Adjabui says

    • Spencer Churchill says

      Chilly, take it from me. By far the SRT4669x is the best decoder ever for satellite viewing in Africa. Go for it.

It seems we have to make the choice at installation if we want only the french channels or the common multi tv channels?

  146. laala says


    Is there a way to find out in which countries I can get the multi tv signal? I travel all over the world a lot and would like to know where I can watch multi tv where possible.
    Perhaps there is a website that lists all the countries.


    I tried it but it didn’t work. The quality signal was red instead of blue. Pls kindly help me.

  148. Setornam says

    I have KKTV digital box (decoder). How can I set it to receive Multi TV channels? Someone tried it but when decoder is switched off and back on, the signal strength goes to 17 and quality goes to 0. After this, even if it’s re-scanned nothing comes. How do I set it such that when it’s switched on after putting it off the channels will still be active?

    Please assist me.
