Hi Wozza.
I not long ago retuned my WS6906 to Optus D3 (where Vast lives).
This the way I did it – Deleted old Optus CI Channels from WS6960.
Locked the disk onto Vast Optus D3 (using other methods than the WS6960)
Connected WS6960 to the disk.
Turned it on – went to Channel Menu – select TV channel option – search for Free Satelite – press OK.
WS6960 then scanned in 1 Help channel plus 5 others.
I deleted the 5 other channels and only retained the Help channel to tune to.
Best of luck

You are both sort of correct. Some (most) VAST channels are on C1 and some are on D3. They are co-located at 156 deg E so it will not matter which one you search for.
Try just entering 156 and ignore the .0

What I should have said was that my 6906 finder was previously set up for the Aurora system and still worked ok on the VAST system until a while ago. I retuned it to the VAST system as described above.
