Got a 5-6 yr old Freeview receiver - Aetna 0808. Had to reset it and now I'm having trouble tuning it. Is the satellite Optus D1? D I need to select anything else? What's LNB? I've got a cryptic note in my papers that says "10750. Was 11300". I have no idea what this means.
Thanks, MichaelT - that was exactly what I needed to know. Actually, the tuner IS an antique - I had to tune the transponder manually to get 10750.
The settings are now:(Standard Sky dish in Arrowtown, Otago) Optus D1 LNB Type - I selected 'Standard 1' (There's a Standard 2 as well as other types) LNB Local - changed manually to 10750 The following were already set at: 22K - OFF DiSEqC - 1# LNB Power - ON Position Set - OFF Set FTA/CAS - FTA Search Type - All TP Setup - 12733/H/2250
Below the last line is a 'Quality' box. The value bar fluctuates between 49% and 54%. I assume the settings are OK - a scan found 23 TV and 13 Radio channels, though not all the TV channels showed a picture, so I deleted them.
So, all seems to be OK, except I'm durned if I can alter the aspect ratio. Oh, I can toggle the figures through 4:3 and 16:9 but the appearance remains at 4:3 regardless. It must be affected by the Bravia TV's settings. I think I need another receiver, but I don't want to spring for a new one. What's a good used one to look out for on TradeMe or wherever?
When I said the transponder frequencies, I didn't mean the LNB frequencies. You always need to set that manually (unless it's already correct).
I meant the 12733/H/2250 line. 12733MHz isn't a Freeview transponder, but it probably sends a signal that tells your receiver what transponder to connect to. You may or may not have received all the Freeview channels.
If you haven't, try changing 12733 to 12456 and 12483.
I assume 2250 is actually 22500?
Can't really help you with the aspect ratio, that's specific to your setup.
