Hi All


after confirming with one off the members that the ua32k5500 would receive hd fta i decided to get one as no need for sat decoder as already built in ,so managed to get it to work  on freeview and also free to air on intelsat19 and also the french fta channels,but i cannot get it to work on cband first issues was a poor cband signal have fixed that problem and getting good receiption on my satbox but re the samsung tv it will not pickup cband signals i suspect that the inversion is turned off for cband operation and is only allowing ku band operation. can anyone help if i could get hold off the service menu access code there maybe some way to check in the service menu.Hope someone can help,have tried samsung but they have a one track mind and have no idea what cband is. Thanks
