I have received several complaints from some unsuspecting (or let me say ignorant ) Gsky and hellobox users. Their complains centres on the fact that some of their powervu channels on a particular powervu satellite package are not working. It gives me the joy to announce to you that there is a simple fix for this. In this article, you will learn the trick on how to activate hellobox & gsky auto-roll and made it work effectively.
How to Activate Hellobox & Gsky Auto-Roll to Make it Work Steadily
So, if your Hellobox v5 or v5 plus or Gsky is going on and off, or if it is not currently working, you need to perform the following steps to get back to viewing action.

1.Upgrade the software via USB flash drive by reading this article
First off, you need to take is for you to upgrade your Gsky or hellobox decoder to the latest available software.
2. Use Only the default Satellite list to Install Powervu or Biss channels
Where many people get it wrong is that they tend to scan the channels with the satellite position available to them as against what the auto-roll decoder supports. Please if you do not want to have any problem using hellobox for powervu and biss auto roll, you must use the default satellite list on the decoder. For example, the Sony package supported by hellobox auto-roll is on 68.5E. Don’t scan sony on any other satellite apart from this. Not even on 66.4e. The bottom line is that you should always use the default list.
3. Make sure the satellite you are scanning the channels on matches the decoder’s default satellite
Hellobox and GSKY receivers system manage 250+TPs & more than 3000+ CH Powervu channels auto-roll. All auto-roll data will match with satellite name in default satellite list. To ensure Powervu channel smoothly auto-roll, User must select exact satellite name from software default satellite list to install channels.
For example, To open 68.5e Intelsat20 ‘s channels by auto-roll, you need to select “Intelsat20 68.5e” in default satellite list to install channels. if you use wrong default satellite to install channels or add a new satellite name to install those channels,auto-roll will not work properly. see picture below:
4. Wait For transponder(TP) to send EMM data to commence auto-roll
Explaining this further, for example, 68.5e Sony package you need to wait for about 30seconds-3mins for the auto roll. However, some individual channels need to wait a long time for the auto roll, might need about 10-20mins depending on when satellite TP send EMM data. Once it opens the first times, it continues opening immediately you switch on the decoder.
NOW THAT YOU KNOW what you need to do in order to activate hellobox & Gsky auto-roll function, continue enjoying your receiver’s auto-roll functionalities.
