Greetings fellow Geekzoners, 

I have a dilemma which i am hoping someone will be able to help me with. I have an annoying DVB-s satellite device. its a no name 'blazeTv HD' USB based device. I have a standard sky satellite. I know that optus d1 is available, and the satellite is configured properly because when i use one of my 3 other hardware satellite decoders ('Superveiw', and a warehouse brand etc) not only do they work fine but they tell me the LOF settings. They are LOF1 11300, and 10750. Suffice to say i have tried this and MANY other 'helpful' methods found on the net.  I have tried almost every single awful DVB software under the sun: Microsoft media center, media portal, myth tv, and mypvr. NO luck.  I have one LNB, and i KNOW it works fine, and is facing the right direction...soooo frustrating...

How do i figure out the LOF 'switch' setting? Whats the best PVR/DVR software to use. I just wanna use my satellite card :O



Any help received will be greatly appreciated. I am about ready to smash this DVB-s usb decoder into smithereens....

LNB LO is either one frequency, 11300 or 10750, or the other, i.e., it doesn't switch. If not ancient will be 10750. Your USB device is most likely DVB-T only - at least the 3 manuals online indicate DVB-T tuner.

If you have hi and Lo lof settings then try both at 10750. Set the switch to something artificially high like 15000 (so it never switches)

If that doesn't work and you have a very old Sky lnb then use 11300 instead of 10750

Your device is probably not a satellite tuner. The use of HD in the name is the clue.
