    I am not sure what you are looking to do ultimately but you can disconnect the sat in feed and run the Check Switch test. When the error message appears that say you have fewer satellites then previously detected, then save the results and it will clear the satellites from the matrix.

    hi there folks
    This is for echostar dsb 808 2ci receiver
    you can delete a satellite or transponder in edit,
    1/ press the OK button on the remote control when in normal viewing mode
    2/ press the yellow button on the remote control select per satellite from the drop down list press OK button,
    3/ press the white button (edit) on the remote control and select delete from the drop down menu and press OK button,
    4/ select the satellite you want deleting and press OK button satellite will be deleted press once on exit button on remote control then select yes save changes

    if you want to remove unwanted transponders just select per transponder instead of per satellite when you have pushed the yellow button ,
    and that's it job done hope it will benefit someone else it got me out of trouble,
    regards peter,
