Hi There,

Is anyone using DVBViewer to get the freeview channels via DVB-S? I have it setup on my HRV-3000 working sweetish with DVB-T, but it would be quite good to get the channels on DVB-S as well so you can get a clear understanding of the difference in quality just by changing the channel!

PS: Is it just me, does anyone else type DBV insted of DBV... damm!.. DVB!

I have my HVR3000 working with both DVB-T/S and DVBViewer, works sweet on both of them, freewview sat quality is pretty good, you can even compare it to sky as Tv1 and 2 are fta via sky.

Oh cool! Can you share the settings for searching for the DVB-S stations? Would you be able to post a screenshot of the channel tuner screen???

Thanks!!!

Is your LNB a sharp or one of the newer ones. If older set LOF1 11300 and LOF2 11300 and LOF SW 12750

For Freeview
12483H  Symbol Rate=22500
12456H  Symbol Rate=22500


The easiest way to do it is through TransEdit, which you can download from DVBViewer site. Will try and post some pics tonight.

If your LNB is a single one operating at 10750 then you should be able to pick something up. My setup is now  a dual throat LNB with completely different settings so no use posting up. I would recommend using transedit, with that you can create satelllites, scan exact frequencies easily, and import through to dvbviewer with one button click, available from dvbviewer.com or free
