I am haoping someone here can help me with some setting for mysky hdi box.

I took it to a friends place last week to watch the rugby..
I plugged it in and changed some of the LNB settings and it got a picture but crackly.

I live in Titirangi Auckland and the box was coming to a Newton Apartment complex (only 12 units)

The original settings are
LO Low Band - None
LO High Band - 10.75
LNB Power - On
East West - East
Tone - 156
22Khz - Satelitte

The only setting I changed was LO High Band to 11.30

This enabled me to get a artifacted picture on some channels and rainfade message on others.
The Signal levels came in for Tuner1 at 41dBuV and 5.0dB.

How can I fix this?
Is it a setting issue or the the main satellite is not aligned correctly.

Any help would be much appreciated.

MDU's are noutorius for bad signal, maybe it's worth checking with one of the neighbours for what their settings are.

Sky LNB's are either 10750 or 11300

Cyril may have a better idea.
