Hi guys,

I was wondering if someone could recommend a freeview installer in Wellington. Also any ideas as to how much it will cost? i have the dish and decorder but i think the connections need to be checked and configured.

Thanks in advance.




I just got myself a zinwell zmx-7500. I have conncected it to my tv and satellite but i'm getting no signal. I have followed procedure on freeview.co.nz to hook it up. Seems to be hooked up properly but when i engage the search funtion it can't get any channels and says " service not collected". I have checked on freeview website for coverage in my area and it says "very likely" so why am i not getting any service.




[EDIT MOD RC:Added content found in the original thread the OP made]

What do you mean by you have a dish and decoder?

Have you moved into a place which has a SKY dish? What decoder do you have?

Have you tried just turning it on, what do you get or not get?

Yes PM me if you want to get it installed. As we are on the move back to Welly city it might be a few days before I can sort it out for your, If you want it sooner then try Brunzy.

Guess the obvious things to check are the LNB LO setup, there are two common ones in use 11300MHz and 10750MHz.

Cheers
Cyril
