Hello all

I have just moved house and looks like previous people had Sky (I don't).  Can hook up and tuned all the Freeview channels from Optus D1 okay except TV1 and TV2, but just cannot seem to find how to get these last 2 channels.

Any ideas what I am not doing correctly ?

Thanks and regards

NoelT

Hi Jaxson

Actually you are correct, I am missing 5 - Maori, 6 - U, 7 - TNVZ News and 11 - Trackside (which I do not need anyway).

You're missing an entire MUX. What sort of box do you have any what transponders are you scanning?

you need to do a scan of 12,483MHz as well as 12,456MHz, the former is what you are missing.

Hi All

Have scanned all available frequencies on Optus D1 and C1,  but still only getting the same channels, i.e. missing TV1, TV2, U, Maori, Trackside.  Had them all at my previous house just up the road from here.  Am using a Strong SRT4658X which wokred fine before, so not sure it would be that?

Wait your thoughts.

Thanks

NoelT

Hi,

Check the settings for the transponder with TVNZ in it.

Settings should be:

Frequency= 12483 MHz
Symbol Rate= 22500
Polarity = Vertical

While you are editing that transponder you should be able to see signal quality. Then try a scan on it.

The other possibility is that you have changed to a Favourite channel list without TVNZ in it.

Go into the edit channels menu and see if you can see TV1 and 2 in there.

I think you may have been tuned into the Sky copies of TV1 and 2 before, which may be why they disapeared (Sky removed them some time ago).

Give it a go!

HD typo ? Pol is Horizontal.

Your signal may be poor ,and the problem is alignment / skew

Hi Brunzy

That didn't work either,  one setting on the system for Optus D1 available was 12483 Mhz H, edited that to 12483 Mhz V, and scanned but same thing.  When doing a single scan of that frequency, all it is finding is some of the pay channels.

Not sure how to find the "transponder" as that does not seem to be an option under any of the menus for the system.

Any more thoughts ?

Regards

Noel

Changed that to 12483 H and was already 22500, and scanned again, still no different result?

Hi,

Whoops! Sorry about the polarity mistake. Of course it should be horizontal. Thanks for correcting me guys. The panadol PE cold strength must have had more affect than I thought! Hope I haven't wasted too much of your time Noel.

I had a strong box a while ago, but can't remember the exact way to navigate the menu into the transponder settings.

I would guess it's in installation/tuning and then once you've got to the satellite D1 you move the cursor down to the transponder and go left and right to each frequency. Does this sound right?

Hi All

Am going home shortly and hope I can get this figured tonight.  Therwise, guess I will have to get a techy in.

Cheers
