Recently just moved home and the house has always had a sky dish and sky in the lounge. I have a satellite receiver (telray TS-511) in my bedroom and am having some problems. I'll try and outline everything about the situation so bear with me.
For awhile I could not get any channels at all, as when plugged in they would only get 17% quality. After a long time playing with settings I finally got channels with 80%. The setting that got this was using a 'Universal' LNB type with freq of 9.750/10.700 on Optus D1 and LNB power OFF, not a 10750 or 11300 which I tended to find mentioned online.
When doing an auto scan I can pick up all channels, including the paid sky channels. TV3 and C4 (12608) work fine, as do Four, Prime, TV3 Plus 1, Parliament tv etc (12421). In the channel list TV One and TV Two are there, with 80% quality but do not show any picture or sound... just a completely blank screen. And when I do an auto or manual scan with the TVNZ settings, I get nothing. I'm not sure how they got into the channel list in the first place... must have been found in a scan at some point, but it's weird that they have 80% and do not work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need tv2! :)
