I am trying to get my freeview satellite working and for the life of me cant figure out settings for that.


Where do I point my satellite disk and what settings do I do on my LG smart TV for that?


Can any one please help?

you cant just point the sattelite dish, there is a bit more to it than that.


if the dish is already there its likely already aligned and you just need to setup the tv for it

yes I know I cant just point it. I was wondering if someone can tell me the Azimuth and elevation so I can setup my disk.

I am guessing you are in a dead zone, so can't get  freeview HD using a UHF aerial up there? Craigs Flats is in a bit of a shadow up there literally, so guessing it is. The only reason I see for using the satellite version these days is if you don't have good broadband, and can't use the freeview live dongle that lets you stream it over the internet. Or you want to record using a PVR, but you may then need to buy a box if the TV doesn't have it build it. I think Dish TV have recently released one that does both UHF and satellite channels.
