Modulation must be set to QPSK, not 8psk.

If the FEC needs to be set manually, Freeview uses 3/4.

The old Oval shaped sky LNBs drift off frequency as they get old. Try all the parameters as above but change LNB frequency to 10745. Mine only works on 10745 now.

don't mess with me.... i'm the hd insider....

Jaxson: Is the lnb power set to on?

Lnb set to 10750?

Hi Jaxson, these are my current settings...

Signal strength & quality showing 0%

Low Freq : 10750
High Freq : 10750
22k : On
DiSEqC : Off
LNB Power : On
Position Set : Off

TP 1:
Freq : 12456
Sym Rate : 22500
Pol : Hor
Transmission : DVB-S2
Fec : Auto
Modulation : 8psk
Pilot : Off

TP 2:
Freq : 12483
Sym Rate : 22500
Pol : Hor
Transmission : DVB-S2
Fec : Auto
Modulation : 8psk
Pilot : Off

22k off
transmission; dvbs
modulation: QPSK

If that doesn't work you probably have a drifting local oscillator in your LNB and needs to be replaced
