I have had this I think you need to get rid of the 22K part, let me check.


Something like this works.....


Satelite D1
LNB 10750
Trans 8/16 124848 H 22500
22KHz Off
LNB Power On
Diseqc Type Off
Diseqc Port None

Looking at the photo, it is nothing to do with 22 kHz. The LNB on the dish has been installed incorrectly, and needs to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise when looking into the dish. This is causing H/V to be reversed, and why the Freeview box has been set up for vertical polarisation as a workaround to fix it.


You should be able to do this yourself, but it will need to be fine tuned a mm or so at a time using the signal strength meter on either sat receiver once you get a signal lock. The Freeview box will need to be retuned.

It should get Sky going straight away, but because the FV box has a workaround done to it to make everything go, that will need to be put back to how it should be.


Above TradeMe auction has a couple of pics of how the LNB should be rotated - note the position of the wire coming out of it. Basically, start at 90 degrees from where it is now, then fine tune a little at a time. The exact angle will vary depending on exactly where in the country you are, but you should be able to get it near enough to get a signal lock and picture, then slowly adjust, looking at the signal strength meter, for maximum signal. Bear in mind that if you stand in front of the dish while adjusting, it blocks the signal...

So skew is currently not optimised, so potential interference issues.

Apparently was a local guy who does dishes etc !!!- Stupid really its a million plus Bach when we starting putting in the automation we should have picked it up , we always excluded dishs but got stuck with it here as remote access by boat only - Next door just saying Sky charge a fortune to come out and builder paid for this guy to do it so they could watch TV whilst building the house as staying out here... Lesson learnt - Thanks for help all
