Can anyone please shed some light on how I can adjust which satellite my new Sky box uses. On the old decoder I used to be able to go into settings and key in a pin number and adjust the satellites to get the best pictures, I can't work out how to do this on the new decoders. 

 

 

 

Any help is appreciated.

Not sure what you mean? Sky only uses one satellite. Optus D1. To access other satellites you would need to move the dish antenna.

Sorry I guess I mean frequencies then, in the past with the old decoders there has been multiple options to select each give difference signal strengths and picture quality.

What are you trying to achieve? There is no "fine tuning" required. You either get a good signal or you don't. If you see picture breakup your dish probably needs realigning, but Sky would check this when they do the box swap.

Did some searching and found my answer, its below. This comes from another thread on GZ

 

 

 

"I would assume that the apartment satelite dish is using an LNB on 11.30ghz

 

 

 

Using your sky remote and press active then setup, whilst on the "Atmospheric Conditions" screen 

 

Go to System Settings 

 

Press 0 7 5 9 then Select on your remote - this should take you to a "secret" menu 

 

Go to LNB Setup 

 

The High Band LO Frequency (GHZ) will probably be set to 10.75. 

 

Change it to 11.30 

 

Select Save New Settings 

 

Press the SKY button on the remote and wait a few seconds, hopefully it'll work. 

 

 

 

You don't need to change any other settings other than the LNB LO frequency"

That's not fine tuning, that's changing the LNB freq which you would need to do if you take the decoder from your house to one with a different LNB on the dish.

 

You are correct in that with the new decoders this is in the "installer" menu, the above is correct
