For this, go to Menu >> Installation >> Satellite Settings >> TP List or Transponder List from your remote and add this frequency 11630/V/30000 through Add New Transponder and check the signal. If the signal is coming then manually scan to get the channel and if the signal is not coming then try to get the signal by turning the dish antenna slightly left and right.

Make sure to check its highest supported resolution and also see the HDMI port in it. It should be at least 720p i.e. HD Ready. There is false information written on the boxes of TV and set-top boxes in the market, hence definitely ask for the invoice.
