Hi All,

Hoping I can get some help setting up my freeview.

The house has an existing satellite dish from a previous tenant’s sky installation.

The LNB(?) on the dish has the following on the sticker:









I have purchased a cheap satellite receiver (gotta love, a StarSat SR-B1.


It doesn't seem to matter what setting I try in the receiver it just keeps saying that there is no signal. The only thing I can think of is that the LNB on the dish is old and/or broken. If it is, can you suggest another LNB to purchase (and a source) that will work with my setup, failing that can you suggest anywhere where I may have the wrong settings? (Screen shots of the settings to follow).



Thanks in advance for any/all help.

so you've gone in to the menu and set it up for 10750? and it definitely still doesn't work?

if so, somewhere like Stewarts will sell you another LNB for about $30

Hey man,

Thanks for the reply. Yeah i'm pretty sure i tried every setting under the sun in the STB. So i was leaning towards having to replace the LNB as well Frown. Luckily after looking at the Stewarts site (as you mentioned) i was plesently surprised with how cheap they are.

I might try a different STB just incase, but otherwise i'll go get a $30 replacement LNB.
