I have purchased one of these with no software. I down loaded DVB viewer TE2, I can get around that OK but dont seem to be able to tune any channels yet, but I absolutely dont know what Im doing yet.

I think I done a scan of every sattelite as it took a long time. But nothing showed,, are our satelites there... Might just need a bit of help here.

the polarisation shouldn't matter. The key thing you need to do is set the freqs right, then assuming the dish is set up right, you should be in business.

Thanks for that , the other thread does look like it is going to be helpfull.

I have actually managed to tune some stations now and have good picture, so Im on my way, Just got to remember how I doe it.

I think it was the symbol rate I didnt do right and also there is a freq for the antenna..

Id recommend using the WDM driver+ Technisat software (setup4PC) during the setup to ensure you are getting best possible signal quality. Once it's all setup and working uninstall all technisat software and just install the BDA driver and choose what ever software you're going to use. MediaPortal is my personal favourite mainly because it allows you to watch/record multiple channels at the same time using only 1 card.

Question 1
How do you use the remote control that comes with these, should there be something to point it at.

Question 2
I have two other freeview boxs in the house, no theres 3 in total working through a splitter,, to get the SBS channels I have always had to make sure that both sets are switched to SBS to get the vertical polarisation to work, now that I have the Technisat card in the computer, I cant get SBS vertical on the other sets while the computer is plugged in,, How do I get around this,,,, maybe put a coax switch in the line?

Question 3
When I go through the channel list and get to a point where there is no signal, I think everything freezes up,, is it the software, maybe?

I have sucessfully recorded a TV program, by just clicking on the instant record button. It was saved to shared video file as a .TS
To ieiw it I networked it through to XBMC in the lounge that plays .TS files.
.TS is a DVD type of file.
