Hi. I have purchased a second hand Triones 2812 receiver and hooked it up to the sky dish. I was able to view all the menus and channel listings on the TV screen but got a message "no signal".    I understood that all I had to do was plug in the dish cable to the receiver and move the 3 sky wires (red yellow white from the TV) from the sky receiver to the Freeview receiver.  I  disconnected and reconnected sky and checked the signal strength which was 72.  However reconnecting the FTA receiver still showed no signal.   Does anyone know what I did wrong or failed to do?

You may need to change the LNB frequency setting in the FTA receiver to match the LNB you have in yur dish. Common values are 11300 MHz and 10750 MHz.

You probably haven't set the correct LNB frequency. What this is depends entirely on the type of LNB you have.

Thanks.  I will check when the boss (wife) is not commanding the TV.  I know what you mean... I saw that link on the screen.

Hey - even a stopped clock is right twice a day - I had to strike it lucky sooner or later.
