Hi,
I purchased a yess dvb 2600u from 1-day. It works fine on satellite - but I'm also trying to get it working at a house with only Powered UHF. The yess is not getting any signals. Prime works fine and looking around at the other UFH aerials in the area, they all seem to pointed in the same direction.
What settings are required in the yess device to get a terrestrial signal?
Any ideas?

Cheers,
Ian.

A TERRESTRIAL set top box. The two standards are not inter-compatible.

Thanks for the reply - so that dvb 2600u will not pick up terrestrial signals? Did wonder - but it had sockets for antenna, so thought I'd give it a try. I guess the complete lack of any mention in the manual should have been a pointer!

Cheers,
Ian
