Freeview Tuning Problems and VCRs, DVD recorders, Sky Boxes.

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

"OK. Dump the VHF antenna and bypass the diplexer box. You probably need to get up on the roof and see if it contains an amp as well. Is that UHF or Sat tuning in the picture? 21 - 69 would indicate UHF. Here's my parameters for Sat Tuning with…"

"Your TV doesn't have a Sat Tuner so hooking up the Sat Dish won't work. If you can't get reception on the UHF Antenna then there is probably an antenna/cabling problem. How far from the Transmitter? If the previous owner had a…"

Biggles replied to Patrick Mckibbin's discussion New S7070rHD-XM does not get a signal - HELP
"Josh beat me to it. Needs to be changed to 10750/10750. Hopefully it will work then. I'm guessing the Shop's Dish has an 11300 LNB and yours is 10750 as is normal for Sky Dishes."

"Check your LNB frequency. Should normally be 10750 but you may have an 11300 LNB? Can you post a screenshot of your setup parameters?"

Biggles replied to Rob Bathgate's discussion DVB-T Prime Freeview Tuning on Sony KD49X8000D (can't find Prime)
"OK. Your tuning procedure is correct and you have the right Mux/Freq. Sounds to me like you are in a marginal signal area and there's enough signal strength for the TV to tune all MUX except the K1 MUX which may be a slightly weaker signal.…"

Biggles replied to Nic's discussion No Signal
"Yes. Both the TV and STB are have Digital Terrestrial Tuners. They need a UHF antenna for Freeview. Sat Dish won't work with them."

Biggles replied to Nic's discussion No Signal
"Your Panasonic TV doesn't have a Satellite Tuner so a Dish Antenna is not going to work. You need a UHF antenna. I'm guessing your STB is the same, no Satellite Tuner."

Biggles replied to Gill's discussion Panasonic dmrxw380 pixelating - not aerial ( I dont think)
"Pixellation is almost always an antenna/cabling problem and unlikely to be your Panasonic. Could be that the tuner in the Akai may be slightly more sensitive so doesn't pixellate if the signal is weaker. Sometimes it can just be atmospheric…"

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?
