Hi,

 

I am located in Stoke, Nelson. On my TV Tuner card I can get prime and some radio station's but I would like to be able to get all the free view channels like tv nz etc

 

Currently my tuner set

 

 

 

LOF1 : 12483

 

LOF Switch: 22500

 

LOF2 : 12483

 

 

 

I am not sure which setting is correct for Nelson, NZ freeview

 

 

 

Thank you

Those are invalid settings. Those settings you've tried are Optus D1 transponder frequency / symbol rate, rather than LNB settings, and outside the valid range likely to be accepted by the driver, so likely just ignored and it's using whatever the driver defaults.

 

The LNB is the device at the end of your satellite dish. It'd depend what LNB you have. Some common ones for NZ are 11300/11300/11300 or 10750/10750/10750 or 9750/11700/10600.

I'd suggest setting the LO switch to something arbitrarily higher - say 17000. It will ensure that whatever it is trying to tune, it doesn't activate the 22 kHz switch on what is probably an old Sky LNB, leading to hard to diagnose faults only tuning some transponders.
