tv will be terrestrial free view more than likely, so would need a UHF aerial, not a sat dish

sat dish to sat receiver, sat receiver via component/hdmi/what ever to TV

helps if you list model numbers of what you have

It was some wording that i copied and because i couldnt directly past it in it was easier to do it that way.
I thought receivers are pre configured?

read the manual for the satelite receiver (RTFM)

It should tell you how to set it up

If you've not got a manual, suggest you go to the manufacturers website

Sounds like either the Dish is Misaligned, there is interference from trees or buildings or the LNB has gone fut....

If its not trees/Buildings, you are probably gonna need a visit from an professional installer,  which area are you in?....

Your Strong satellite receiver has to have its LNB freqency set to that of your satellite dish. It will be either 10750 or 11300.
That model will not auto config settings.
