 I thought I'd enter the free to air world as we got sick of the rabbit ear picking up substandard reception, trade was the go and we brought a corship decoder 180 dual LNBF for optus d1, d3, just adding c1 on a 1.5 dish, D1 B3 were working fine no problems now for some reason Maori Tv and nztv6 has dropped off, I contacted the supplier he says the it is Sky TV fault as Sky TV is broadcasting on the same freq Vertical which interferes with horizontal, just wondering if anyone has come up with the same issue or knows a fix for the problem.

Sky do NOT operate on 12483 V.

My guess is that if you have lost Maori and TVNZ6, yet still receive TV1 and TV2 then the versions of TV1 and TV2 that you are watching are from the Sky transponder on 12671 H. Please confirm TV1 and TV2 frequency.

You should be using

12483 22500 h
12456 22500 h

It sound like the guy you got the receiver from knows very little. Sky and Freeview both now operate on horizontal beams, up until a few months ago Freeview were operating on h beams and Sky were using v beams but Sky have now changed.

I probably just as little, most of my channels I find on V beams when I change it (or try to change it) I lose the channel. best place to start i guess is at the front so I hope you guru's all don't mind me asking setting for optus D1 and B3 and C1  I have the feeling that the setting have been changed.

I will take some picture of my setup and post them up tonight, thanks to everyones input for the newbie... learning curve for me thats for sure.

You are watching the Sky 12671Hpol feed of Tv1 and 2 not the Freeview ones. Just to clarify TV6 and MaoriTV are on the 12483MHz Hpol FreeView mux along with FreeViews feed of TV1/2.

Your supplier is telling you porkies. From what you describe maybe your Skew is out if you are finding things on Vpol.

Other than one Sky mux remaining on 12519V all transmissions, both Sky and FreeView a Hpol, period.

Fossie: Why would you want maori tv?

What channels do you have at home, and why would you want them??

Maori TV could be great for those who are learning or maintaining the language, basketball fans, people who are interested in the culture, people who speak Maori and are interested in specific programming on the channel.

Just the basketball alone holds more appeal to me than most of Skys channels do!
