I have a Freeview DVB-S Dish TV S7010 receiver that I want to give to my Grandmother. It works fine at our house, but I took it to her place, plugged everything in and got a "No Signal" message. Information is being received by the satellite (the Quality bar in the settings screens goes from 5% to 60% like a yoyo), and when I change channel the TV guide is giving accurate information. No picture is coming through however.

My Grandmother has Sky plugged in (which she is getting rid of), so I would have thought that the Satellite was setup correctly for Freeview to replace the Sky.

My Question is - what settings would I have to change if we are just changing location? (or will I need to get a technician in to sort it out?)

If its a proper Freeview receiver (which it is), its easy

Go into the menu and use 'Factory Reset' (or Factory default)

It asks what area you are in then tunes itself

Didn't work. The Dish TV box reset to factory defaults seriously messed with things! The difference between the settings when it was connected to my aerial and the settings when I connected to grandmothers aerial was the TP seetings. My home it had 1/18 where as I couldn't work out how to get this setting at my grandmothers. Anyone konw how to change this setting?

weather..landlord...aerial guy

A guy got our S7010 working for the first time today by reseting to factory settings and then changing the Optus D1 LNB Low Freq to 10750. Like so:

Setup - Set Default

Setup - Intsallation - MY DISH - Optus D1 - LNB Low Freq - enter number with numeric keys 

I should also point out that I have previously applied the updated firmware noted here.


...also I have no idea what that setting actually does but it worked for us :)
