Does the freeview STB require 22kHz activated to work? If so, dish is misaligned.

Check 22 kHz isn't activated in the Sky decoder then. Most likely cause is 22 k interfering with the throat switching.

 

Also possible is the LNB is degrading on the dish, and the tuner on the freeview box can lock on, but the Sky box can't. Try changing the LNB freq in the Sky decoder up and down slightly and see if that helps - say 10740 or 10760

Surely you could have posted images that are actually readable rather than 200x112 thumbnails. What I can make out just on the left most image is that its looking at a vertically polarised transponder either because signal is going through a DiSEqC switch?? or LNB is completely misaligned. Is a DiSEqC switch involved???

 

Note: All Freeview and Sky transponders are horizontally polarised.

There is something odd about your dish. Either the LNB is rotated 90 degrees (swapping V/H), or you have a DiSEqC switch in line that the Sky box isn't set up for.

 

I suspect the LNB is out by 90 degrees, and the FV box has had V/H swapped to compensate. The fix is to properly align the dish and LNB.

Can you confirm if there is any sort of satellite switch installed, and also get a photo of the dish and LNB?

System is standard straight from Dish to a rack in washhouse - Control4 front end interface - No satellite switch - turned off the Diseq off on Freeview made no difference to that signal
