I have just got myself a freeview kit to take away to my caravan the plan was to set up the dish leave it there and when i go up there i will take either the freeview or my sky decoder .I set up the dish at home just to make sure i could get it to work ,it took a bit but i got the freeview working but cannot get sky to work it says unlocked i guess this means not locked on the satelite is there something i need to change on the decoder .
I hope there is someone out there that can help me please

Probably the LO frequency of the carvan dish LNB is different to your house one, there are two frequencies in common use, 11300 and 10750, this pdf I hand out to customers who I have sold/installed dishs on their holiday homes etc, it explains how to adjust your Sky box for the two options.

Hi Cyril   Like the PDF file, but a small point which may confuse those who like to tinker, satellite at 156E is C1 not D2.

Hi Paul, very good point, it infact should read D3 that will eventually fly with C1 at 156 and provide SkyNZ with extra capacity, however what I have written there is what is detailed in the Sky Firmware as shown on screen, so intended to detail what customers will see on screen rather than any reference to reality. Obviously at the time the firmware was written it was thought by SkyNZ that D2 was still heading for 156, which it originally was planned to but history proves otherwise.
