Well, it looks like you have got it all set up OK.

You're getting a signal, and it appears to be from the correct satellite, but it is a vertical transponder, and you are looking for horizontal ones. LNB power set to 13/18 should mean it is switching correctly.

Some of the older Sky LNBs are failing, but given it was working OK a few weeks ago, this is less likely. As they go, the LO frequency can drift slightly - to test this, try changing the 10750 LNB frequency to 10752 or 10748 and try another scan. If this works, it means the LNB is on it's last legs and should be replaced.

Just double checking - you are entering the horizontal part of the transponder info aren't you? It's not set to vertical?

XToma: Thanks for the help so far. Ive made a little progress, managed to get LNB set to 10750 and got Switch 22KHz turned off. Signal strength is up to 75%.

I can now get a test screen with the following info

Satellite: Freeview
12635MHz 5100Ks
V:1296 A:1297 P:1296

Not sure what any of this means? Anymore ideas/tips?

This is a Southern Cross Broadcasting channel and nothing to do with Freeview in NZ.
