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

Started this discussion. Last reply by Biggles May 16, 2014. 2 Replies

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

"If you tried both and it doesn't show a signal then there is some other problem. Could be the LNB is dead. I tried both & it still came up with tuning failed i reset to factory settings last night hoping it would work"

Biggles replied to Lit Dom's discussion Sumsaung TV directly connects to Satelite Dish (Sky Dish) cannot receive Freeview
"No. Doesn't matter what box you use, if the Dish is pointing at the wrong satellite you won't be able to tune Freeview which is on Optus D1. You need to get an installer to check the Dish alignment and tune the TV. Unlike UHF a Dish…"

Biggles replied to Sue Hutchings's discussion Loss of Channels
"OK. Check signal strength for each MUX in the T2200 setup menu and post results. Pg38 of the Manual - Manual Scan. Interference is usually caused by new cellphone band and suppressors are available. Can you upload a picture of the antenna?"

Biggles replied to Sue Hutchings's discussion Loss of Channels
"What sort of antenna do you have? Sounds like an antenna/cabling problem as you are missing justone MUX which would indicate marginal signal strength or interference."

Biggles commented on leas's blog post can I use my UHF HARD DRIVE through a satellite box (I am semi rural and only have Satellite.
"OK. I got a bit confused and thought the box with the 2 SCART sockets was the DVD but on looking closely again I see it is actually the Sat Box. Looks the same as my old Pace Sky Box. I think to do what you want to is fairly simple. You need a SCART…"

Biggles commented on leas's blog post can I use my UHF HARD DRIVE through a satellite box (I am semi rural and only have Satellite.
"Hmm. Tricky setup. That looks like an older Analogue Panasonic like I used to have so it won't have Freeview built in. And the TV doesn't have HDMI input? Can't really remember how I had mine all connect as I had Sky in the mix as…"

Biggles commented on leas's blog post can I use my UHF HARD DRIVE through a satellite box (I am semi rural and only have Satellite.
"Make sure the Audio leads are plugged into the input sockets on the CRT TV and not the output sockets. Easy to confuse them. If they are in the correct socket then it would appear there's no sound out of the decoder. Can you post pictures of…"

Biggles commented on leas's blog post can I use my UHF HARD DRIVE through a satellite box (I am semi rural and only have Satellite.
"Depends on what you mean by "hardrive with a built in freeview". If as your profile suggests you mean you have a Panasonic UHF Recorder then yes it is possible to hook up the Composite Video and Audio outputs to the external Composite A/V…"

Biggles replied to Michael Robert East's discussion Freeview Decoder works Freeview TV doesn't
"If you unplugged the sky dish cable from the Sky box and plugged it into the sat socket on the TV and can't get a picture then you obviously have an incorrect parameter in the TV setup menu. Most likely culprit is the LNB frequency. If 10750…"

"Had you thought about trying one of these WiFi extenders? https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/NETTPL2841/TP-Link-TL-WR841N-300Mbps-Wireless-N-Router-2T2R-4 It is probably much more sensitive than the STB's built in WiFi. Just locate near the STB…"

Biggles replied to Jill Nutsford's discussion Reset of freeview after removal of Sky
"The top connectors are Component video plus audio inputs. The bottom are Composite video and audio inputs. The red white and yellow out (composite AV) from a STB should go the the bottom red white and yellow connectors on the TV."

Biggles replied to Jill Nutsford's discussion Reset of freeview after removal of Sky
"As I said before, we need more information. What is the make and model of your TV?. Are you using a STB? If so what make and model? Sat or UHF? What is the coax in your bedroom connected to, a Dish or UHF or both? How is everything connected…"

Biggles replied to Theageingrocker's discussion Antenna Power Overload Detected
"Does the message disappear if you unplug the coax from the Dish? If so it will rule out the STB and indicates a problem with the cable or LNB."

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?
