I have noticed that many people asking for help with tuning Freeview don't specify a lot of information (some give none). If people have old VCRs, DVD Recorders and/or old Sky boxes should power them…Continue

Biggles replied to Taylor's discussion Great reception/Poor reception???
"Does the UHF not have a coax cable already? What direction is it pointing? If not pointing towards Waiatarua it may be pointing to one of the infill transmitters so may not need shifting."

Biggles replied to Taylor's discussion Great reception/Poor reception???
"If I understand correctly you have two satellite boxes which were connected by two cables to the SKY Dish and only the downstairs one worked? Only one will work because the second cable probably is setup to look at a different satellite (D2?) than…"

Biggles replied to Taylor's discussion Great reception/Poor reception???
"You can't use a dish as an aerial for Terrestrial Freeview. Any signal will be being received only by the length of co-ax and nothing else. I'm guessing you get just enough signal to watch down stairs and not enough upstairs. You need a…"

Biggles replied to Paul Bolt's discussion Adding Apps
"Depends on what STB/TV you are using. Most TVs and STBs - No. They don't have enough computing power. An Android TV box with Kodi and Exodus add-on works well. So does a PC, HTPC or Laptop."

Biggles replied to JO's discussion Breaking recording of seriess
"I presume you mean you are getting breaks in your series linking? This usually happens due to changes in programming in the EPG and is rather annoying. Can be caused by change in air times, day, back to back series or just any update to the EPG. The…"

Biggles replied to Adele Paris's discussion Lost Maori & Prime channels on Freeview
"OK. Running out of options now without actually looking at your setup. If Maori is missing then you shouldn't be able to get TV3, Bravo, etc as well as they are on the same Mux. The others that are missing are on another Mux which appears to be…"

Biggles replied to Adele Paris's discussion Lost Maori & Prime channels on Freeview
"OK. Also confirm you are tuning UHF and not Satellite as the channel lineup is different on Satellite. If it is indeed UHF then it's possible your channel numbering has got a bit scrambled. Only way to tell is to use the up/down channel button…"

Biggles replied to Adele Paris's discussion Lost Maori & Prime channels on Freeview
"What channels are you getting? Maori TV is on the same Mux as TV3, Bravo etc so if you can't get Prime you won't get TV3 etc either. Prime is on the same Mux as Choice TV, HGTV etc so they would be missing too. If two of the four Mux are…"

Biggles replied to Jaynish's discussion Unable to find any Channel

Oops sorry.

I couldn't do an autotune on the T2200 cos I had no service! Anyway I just whizzed out and bought an HDMI lead and it worked. The guy at Noel Leeming told me none of the FreeviewPlus-approved recorders come with HDMI cables, which is a bit rich when they sell for $400 upwards. Thanks for your help.

Thanks Biggles. So why does the Aerial Box come with AV leads and no HDMI cable?
