I'm trying to understand why my TV gets Freeview HD signal from old SKY dish (I thought Freeview satellite doesn't support HD), and why my TV turner card doesn't get any signal at all from same cable. My TV turner card is DVB-T2/DVB-C so can understand why it's not getting signal from satellite since that is DVB-S but then why is my TV working and getting HD signal?
Background, I have a an old SKY dish hooked up and the satellite cable running to TV area, I just cut the satellite/coaxial adapter and put a UHF adapter so it can connect to TV. Signal is working fine and it confident it is HD (1080p), I'm a pixel peeper so can tell difference between SD and HD. I can't go on roof and physical check (three story townhouse) but it's use to be connected to SKY digital.
So in theory the TV is receiving a DVB-S signal? But shouldn't support HD right, based on what I read Freeview HD isn't supported by satellite yet. TV is Sony X8500D but I don't think that supports DVB-S either.
So any thoughts on why my TV is working with old sky dish and getting HD signal from DVB-S signal, but if its actually DVB-T signal then why isn't my TV tuner card getting any signal?
Edit: Even on Freeview site says Sony TV's only support UHF and need Satellite receiver connected to TV. https://freeviewnz.tv/product/82
Edit2: TV Turner card works with mini ariel that came with it just doesn't pick up strong signal but doesn't work at all from cable in wall connected to roof
