Try LNB local oscillator frequency on 10.750 GHz or 11.300 GHz. Your current LNB lo frequency looks like its been adjusted to cater for frequency drift at old location.

Hey thanks for the speedy reply I've tried changing that now but still seem to be getting no dice on guessing the dish is no good our the cabling from the dish to the box.
I put a satellite dish finder inline and it came back reading reception but I think it isn't reading right it was just a cheap one from jaycar

Thanks Grim

That old orbital location setting is wrong too - you want Optus D1 at 160 East.

That 156 is the tone on orbital location. 156 is correct
