Howdy,

 

 

 

Looking for a freeview installer to try and sort out why I have no signal.  Hoping not to be charged a crazy fee.  Bought a new LNB but still nothing.. sat finder emitting a constant buzz when set to 5, no matter what direction the dish is pointed.   Emailed two companies I found in the yellow pages a few weeks ago but they never replied so I want to avoid those people who can't even be bothered.

 

The signal was breaking up one day so I tried to re-align but then it all just stopped.  Replaced the LNB (and freeview box too as i dropped it unplugging the cable) today hoping that was the issue.. must not have been.  Cable is fairly new too.

 

Frustrating me to the point of just giving up! Please get in touch via PM or email.

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Hamish

Or just sign up to sky for 6 months at $49/m and get a new "free" quad coax dish installed (effective cost $300, and 6 months sky sports or sky basic with MYsky box?

We used this guy today.  $117 to re-align the dish and screw in the new LNB I bought.  My bracket was too small for the pole, so he put some insulation tape around it to keep it steady..  I wasn't at home so wasn't able to ask if he actually had a proper sized bracket...
