Hi I really need the settings for freeview to put in my decoder.

I am using a sky digital dish about 4-6 years old.

In the LNB Setting I need:

Universal LNB on / off ?
Lnb freq high ?
Lnb freq Low ?

Lnb power ?

12V output?

On transponder setting I need to know:
Freq?
SR?

I think this is worth a beer!

Thanks in advance!!!

NZ Freeview:
Frequency : 12483 and 12456
Symbol Rate : 22500
LNB Polarisation : Horizontal

Aussie SBS:
Freq: 12646MHz
Pol: Vertical
SR: 12600

Then down the line, when you scan 4 TV1 channels....
TV ONE Auckland + All FTA VPID 515 APID 653 PCR 515
TV ONE Waikato - VPID 519 APID 657 PCR 519
TV ONE Wellington + Central - VPID 513 APID 651 PCR 513
TV ONE Christchurch + Dunedin - VPID 517 APID 655 PCR 517

The Coship has settings for standard 1 and standard 2 lnb's from memory. You need to pick the one that suits your lnb shape.
If the bit on the end of the arm on the satellite dish is:
oval, then 10750
round, then 11300

If you're connecting this to a widescreen digital tv, lcd or plasma, then select aspect ration 4:3 Alt and set you TV to 16:9. (The coship has mislabled the 16:9 output as 4:3 Alt for some stupid reason).

Good luck!

The dual Sky LNB does not do D2, it does C1 at 156 E, and to access it you switch on 22 K tone. LNB is still L.O 10750 . Enjoy the Info screen unless your box has an Aurora card, as all other channels are scrambled. Channel 7 is the only one of interest as the SBS channels are now available on D1

With respect, the settings will be on the LNB label that only you can see.

It will be presented as 11.3 Ghz, 10750 or some other description such as Universal LNB.

The details from the label on the dish are as follows:

Dish type Veccom LK2D5
LO: 11.3 GHZ
I think it says Input 12.25 - 12.75GHZ
I think also says "IF" 950 - 1450 MHZ

I would appreciate if someone can plz advise what to put for the above dish into a Coship CDVB2000E for the Optus d2 satellite for channels such as Dutch BVN.

I am new to this any help much appreciated!

In the LNB Setting I need:

Universal LNB on / off ?
Lnb freq high ?
Lnb freq Low ?

Lnb power ?

12V output?

On transponder setting I need to know:
Freq?
SR?
and Polar?

Thanks in advance!

Why dont you ask the person that installed the dish?

whoever installed it should be capable of making it work.

You've already answered your own question, if you have 11300 lnb you use that setting in decoder, that simple. If 10750 then use that. The other settings for D2 are http://www.lyngsat.com/optusd2.html

You aren't going to make any friends willing to spoon feed you if you keep doing multiple posts to re-bump and multiple threads as per
http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=83&TopicId=56786

Sit down, relax, and re-read the previous thread/posts. Information you are after is all there.

Most importantly the LNB details you are asking for and have been seff posted (113.000), and the transponder information for the channels cab be found at
http://www.lyngsat.com/optusd1.html
http://www.lyngsat.com/optusd2.html

EG: 12706 H

freq 12706, polarisation Horizontal (H)
