Hi, I've just bought a Samsung TV with built in DTV tuner.
I pick up the usual channels fine. Am I able to get The Edge TV, and Prime ?
Cheers

Prime is 12707 MHz, Edge is on 12644, Sky transponders. You would have to manually enter the transponder frequencies and scan if such capability exists.

I presume the OP is looking for DVB-T, not DVB-S

No DVB-T in Blenheim.

Get a Freeview Satelllite STB or buy a TV (Samsung) with Satellite tuner. Many new TV models now have Terrestrial and Satellite tuners.

So your LNB on the dish is probably dead.

Freeview HD isn't broadcast in Blenheim so your only hope would be to pick up a marginal signal from Wellington

Is that a terrestrial or a satellite set-top box?

Check the LNB setting is 10750 or 11300. If neither of those work, probably a dead LNB.
