Help, Im relatively new to setting up a tv tuner for my HTPC.

I bought a Hauppauge HVR4400 and I am trying to get freeview tv. Using WMC and WinTV7 I am not picking up any channels. I had a guy come around and confirm that the satellite was receiving signal and the 4400 card is brand new. With the configuration I tried many different combinations . The satellite is using the new Sharp quad LNB for the Mysky hdi setup that requires 2 cables to the decoder. To my understanding I should only require one cable to get the freeview service from this type of LNB. 

The settings I used were pointing to D1 Optus.
LOF1: 10750
LOF2: 10750
LNBSW: 12750

and for the older model of the sky sat : 
LNBSW: 12750

and may more setups that I read on the forums including putting the LNBSW to 0. Does anyone know how I should be setuping using the Quad LNB and Wintv7 ??


* edit . I should clarify Im not trying to get SKY only freeview.

You may find with LNBSW set to zero, it always wants to use the high band LNB (which of course is the same frequency), but may be activating the 22kHz switch.

Try an LNBSW setting of 14000

Update* tried with a dual LMB at the neighbors with the same configuration. Even went on the roof to check the LFO. Im wondering if its a driver issue or faulty card
