Hi,

I've got freeview working, pick up TV1, TV2 TVNZ6 TVNZ7 etc and found all the sky signals not that they work) but it's missing TV3 and C4....

I've done some searches on the net and I have to search manually for TV3 but what satellite and freq details would it be found under just to help me search?


Or is there another reason it's missing, one article I read said if you get one freeview channel there is no reason you will not get them all.

Haven't got my decoder in front of me at the moment but from memory the transponder freqs are
TVNZ 12483 and Mediaworks 12456.
A search through some of the older threads in this forum should yield what you are after.

Well if you use the settings you've been given by a couple of people here you might find it.  The settings you have listed are not correct.

Is the polarity on your successful TVNZ scan vertical or horizontal?  The reason I ask (and geekzoners more knowledgeable about DVB-S may be able to clear this up) is if your lnb has been installed 90 degrees out then V and H polarities are swapped.

Try the above settings but change polar to VER.  The Trans setting is not something I have seen on things I have set up (but that is limited to a Strong STB, MediaPortal, WinTV and Windows 7), I assume it is for a particular  transponder on D1.  I may have missed it, what equipment (STB or HTPC including media program) are you trying to tune?

As has been suggested you must scan 12456 (with symbol rate 22500, Horizontal pol) to get TV3. On most STBs when you go to the transponder setup menu/page where you can perform the scan you will find a signal strength and quality meter on the page at the same time. With the above transponders settings do you get any signal and quality readings. If not then your LNB may be incorrectly aligned for skew.
