Greetings

In an attempt to get Feeview Satelite service I've just installed a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-4400 card

It seems to work ok for exisiting analog TV reception

But  when I autotune it for DVB-S it doesnt find the freeview channels.

It does find lots of encrypted channels, and a few foriegn language channels - but no freeview

I'm looking at Optus D1.

I've got LoF set  at 10750, which seems right for my dish

So what am I missing?

Any suggestions gratefully received

Thankx

Jim

What software are you using do watch TV?

It may be that the Freeview transponders aren't being scanned.
You might need to add and scan them manually.
They are 12456 & 12483.

injuised:

 foriegn language channels are on Optus D2


Looks like that may be the answer

The list of stations I get matches the D2 list pretty well

Looks like the dish is pointed at the wrong sat :(

As injuised said, you may be looking at the wrong satellite. No foreign language on D1 but plenty on D2.
Try googling Optus D1 and Optus D2 you'll see what I mean.

I had a similar problem with my HVR-4400, I used exactly the same settings as used for my HVR-3000, but for some strange reason that where I went wrong, I spent quite some time making changes to the LNB settings and eventually it found all the channels.
