On my box it's tuned on 12648MHz not 12646MHz.

I can only just barely get it on a 46cm dish. It's about 67% quality on a 60cm.

Another thought, if both receivers are on and connected to the same dish, depending on the splitter you use and if it's a dual pol single feed LNB, if one receiver is running with horizontal polarisation the other receiver will not get vertical. The highest voltage to the LNB will win, 18V for H.

As for the 13222MHz on your second receiver, is the LNB L.O setting in the receiver set correctly? They are usually 11300 or 10750. I think I had a 10.5GHz one once aswell.

Hey sweet I worked out that when I turn of the second reciever, it has to be properly turned of at the wall otherwise it still sends dcv to the dish. Is there any thing else to tune into, what about the other satelittes, I cant stop now I got this far without wrecking any thing. Is it worth while getting a second dish or a bigger one. I have a dual LNB that I was going to try but reading the other posts it might be a rubbish of an idea. What do you think.

Hi petermcg,

If it's a Zinwell ZKF-DJ21 Mono Block LNBF, then Yes!

Cheers,  Wild Bill.

Anyone having any audio problems with Prime?  Its slighty distorted for me, the best way for me to describe it is 'wobbly'.

YAY prime is here on DVB-s i wouldn't have known if not for doing a accidental channel scan, it seems i now have 18 channels, pretty crap that 4 are TVone (1, 800, 801,802) and 1 (N47/65534) doesn't show anything and the other 1 is some dodgy (N47/1932) liggins institute whatever that is

yeah, why are there so many channel 1's?? couldn't they at least do a time delay like tv3 on channel 8 (is tv3 delayed by an hour). Would be handy if we had tv1 delayed by one and two hours
