I picked up a DVBS tuner recently with the above name shown in Windows (XP). I installed the drivers and BDA drivers and then fired up epgcollectorgui. I am using the following ini file. I have 3 tuners, the first two are DVB-T and work fine

[GENERAL]
Output=TVGuide.xml
Tuner=3
Timeouts=10,300
[DVBS]
TuningFile=160.0°E Optus D1.xml
ScanningFrequency=12456000,22500,3/4,H,MHEG5
Dish=9750000,10750000,11700000
Satellite=1600

When epgcollector is run this is the output it seems to complete okay but produces no epg entries.
I am just wondering what I could be doing wrong here. I have no ready way to check if the Sky dish is okay (it was okay picking up DVB-S about 2 years ago) since I don't have a DVB-S STB.

Hi

Your LNB frequencies are almost certainly wrong. Try (10750000, 10750000, 12750000) or (11300000, 11300000, 12750000)...

Thanks - that worked great. And I had to add a few other frequencies to pick up the guides for non Freeview channels.
