nzwogboy: What's the story with using the Dual LNB that sky installs? Has anyone got this working? I beleive it has a Low Band of 10750 and high band of 11800, not sure what the transition frequency is though?? Anybody using the same dish/LNB?


Its all good (ie it is what I am doing), have a look at a post back on page 7 by rustygonad which describes how to tune it.  Mine was a 10750 though some will be 11300.  Look in your advanced settings in sky - should tell you what number you need to enter.


Yes I read that post but it says to use a single LNB, we have a dual LNB. What settings do I use for the 10750 Dual LNB?

Hi there, did you guys have to make adjustments to your power settings for your tuner card for preventing it shutting down your sky decoder?

No not here (using hauppauge hvr 3000).  If you are having trouble with it though one possible solution is to use a splitter that is not dual power pass... so the power to the lnb is just from the sky box. 

That given I'm using a dual power pass splitter without problems at the moment.

Thanks I'm using the same card, can you remember the process youwent through to tune in the card. I am using a splitter so should be ok. Possibly I have some of my config wrong :)

Sorry to go on, but are you saying that if you use XMLTVNZ with the TV Pack you can then watch and schedule Digital HD Freeview tv using the guide?

I have a dual LNB like that and the Sky decoder is configured as you have said but I just followed what rusty said and chose single and set it to 10750 and it works.

Another problem I have is that now, after configured the Sky decoder via the PVR150, the guide has 999 channels listed!
I assume this is because the Sky decoder can handle that many channels.
How do I remove all these extra unneeded channels without having to manually untick them all from the guide settings??

So you have set that up? I could not get it working as media centre now seems to look somewhere else for the web site information.

Nety:

Not natively, no. There are ways around this (as previously discussed).

Has anyone found a way to stop the beta .dll that allows h.264 from timebombing yet? (assuming it will some time soon)

No was referring to the MHEG5 guide being "right there", never bothered to use XMLTVNZ.

Turn your htpc's clock back a year Tongue out

Seriously though, is it possible to successfully "edit" such dll files? If not, why not, and if so, why hasnt someone done it?
