"OK. Have you checked signal strengths on each mux and each of your boxes? Could be a failing LNB losing the weaker mux occasionally. Or maybe it just wants the skew angle tweaking?"

"Not only do you need a DVB-S2 box but also a Sky Card as the HD Channels are scrambled. I have an Android box with built in Sat tuner but it cant decode the HD channels as they are scrambled. So even if Freeview DVB-S2 boxes became readily available…"

Biggles replied to John Hine's discussion Poor signal quality of TV3 and Bravo
"OK. Then something in the house or nearby may be affecting the quality. Difficult to locate but logical thing to do is turn everything in the house off and then check signal/quality. Start turning things on to locate any interference or quality…"

"Well Optus D2 is of no use anyway as Freeview and Sky are on Optus D1 https://www.lyngsat.com/Optus-D1.html If the old Sky Dish has been unused for years then it's likely the LNB has died. My Sky Dish has been in constant use for 8 yrs til a…"

Biggles replied to Leon Iusitini's discussion Will Freeview work with only a SKY aerial and an old Sony LCD TV?
"Your TV won't work on a Dish antenna. It has a UHF tuner so needs a UHF antenna. Yes there are new TVs (Samsung and Panasonic I believe)  that have both Sat and UHF Tuners. You just need to shop around. You could also get a Sat Freeview…"

Biggles replied to Gordon Stewart's discussion dish Tv T2200 recorder - How to record override duplicate check ?
"The problem is that the EPG is only a guide and can be very unreliable at times. Plus it isn't updated often enough which sometimes causes errors. I think you'll find it just isn't sophisticated enough to handle your task. Timer…"

Biggles replied to Keith Robert Allnatt's discussion I cannot get Freeview - what needs to happen

Biggles replied to Daniel Marsh's discussion Can't get NZ Freeview channels only overseas ones.

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?
