Hi,

ive got a cheap freeview digitview 110 box that ive had for the last couple of years and its always worked fine.

moved into a new house hooked it up to the dish and it worked perfect for 3 days went away and now its not working.

i tried rescanning for new channels but all i get is SC10rockhampton and SC10mackay from australia which ive never had before, and i only get a strong enough signal to watch them at certain times of the day.

ive searched for the past couple of days and tried scanning numerous frequencies but dont get anything.

the signal intesity is normally around 70% but the signal quality is 2%.


anyone have any ideas, time for a new box? of could the dish be the problem?

Sounds like the dish has moved enough to knock out Freeview.
Maybe thats why you are now seeing the Aussie channels.

Hi,

It could be that the polarity voltage to the dish has changed. The CH10 feeds often appear on the same satellite as Freeview but they are usually Vertical polarity as compared to Freeview on Horizontal polarity.

This could just be a setting. You need Horizontal/18volts to see Freeview. If it's not a decoder setting it could be that the LNB or cable or splitter is faulty stopping the 18V getting to the dish.. (The Vertical feeds need 13volts).




don't mess with me.... i'm the hd insider....
