Hi,

I'm having trouble detecting all the Sky channels for NZ. In Windows using NextPVR and For the record, and I had to manually set my LNB settings to
Low: 10750000
Hi: 10750000
LNB Switch Freq: 10750000

Then I was able to pickup every channel. But I don't know how to do this in TVHeadEnd. I was also able to do this in MythTV, but would rather use TVHeadEnd as seems easier for most things (decryption was a breeze).

I can't seem to get any of the DVB-S2 muxes to work, but I believe this is due to the LNB settings.

Anyone use tvheadend before? now how to set these?

My Windows box has become too unstable, lots of BSODs, mostly around my TBS-6984 (tried every driver, with no success).  

I'm using xbmc as frontend so I'm not dependant on an OS for the server.

Cheers guys

managed to get this working by downloading source code from github and change the settings for the "standard" lnb to 10750000, 10750000, 10750000. once that was done I was able to tune every channel.

just incase someone else ever needs to do this.

How did you change the settings? I think I'm having similar issues. Keen to get TVHeadEnd working.

PANiCnz: How did you change the settings? I think I'm having similar issues. Keen to get TVHeadEnd working.


downloading the source from github, searched the source code for "Universal" (only in 1 file, appears about 3 times, the last instance has an array you can edit).  Changed "Standard" to 107500000 to high, low and err the other one.  then compiled and replaced the binary. 

i used these instructions to compile

let me know if you get stuck.

the DVB-S2 are PSK8 and the DVB-S are QSK. all horizontal and work fine for me setting fec to "auto".

not sure if that is helpful to anyone, but handy to keep on net incase i ever need it :) (saved it too google docs aswell :))

Did you have any success using the option of "Circular 10750" under Satalite config -> LNB type?
