I have a ZeaTek 4300HD Digital Satellite Reciever that I have not used for some time. When I do a Blind Scan to update Freeview channels it does not pick up "The Edge TV" or "TV4 Plus 1". Any suggestions as to what I need to  do  to reconfigure to pick these two channels up?

Are your LNB settings correct?

What transponder frequencies is your blind scan picking up the other Freeview channels on?

You will need to manually tune in new channels, refer to your user manual on how to do this. Brunzy has provided you with the Transponder to reciever the channels

It is picking them up on multiple frequencies  (12757H,13008H,13007V, 12783V) but does not  find any on 12644H which is in the TP List it is scanning

Are you sure you are blind scanning?

 

Ensure it picks up Horizontal transponders only with FREE  or FTA

Delete all channels and set your lnbf to the correct l.o setting.

Then rescan

Thanks to all the suggestions. I have checked all settings and still the blind scan has not come up with the two channels. A small problem is I can't find the manual however I think I have all settings as required. 12644 H 22500 is showing signal strength etc on LNB 11050 but searching reveals nothing. Might have to take to the shop.

LNB should be 10750 or 11300, not 11050.
