Hi I am using the same satellite dish for my sky and freeview. I have sky on main tv and freeview dvb-s/s2 in computer. When I watch sky I have noticed a drop in quality some blur even though my sky settings are really good.  I have set the freeview freequency to lof1: 10750, switch: 22500, lof2: 10750

 

Not sure why the loss of quality when I watch on main tv.

Because main TV is larger than your PC screen. You can't expect low bitrate 576i standard definition to look spectacular because it isn't. Give an example of a specific channel.





Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

My lnb is a sharp brand and has four cable connection points one goes to sky and one freeview so I thought would not effect.

The LNB and associated settings are irrelevant. The Freeview signal is only a 576i signal at lower bitrate than a DVD. It's never going to be great. Different Sky channels have different resolutions and bitrates, but motion blur is often the first obvious artifact when a video source is over compressed.

Would there be any way to over come this?

Not if that is what the broadcaster is transmitting

You can overcome it for Freeview if you can get a UHF signal, and with Sky the other option is something like MySky that streams the picture over internet.





Time to find a new industry!
