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

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 Arne Hinz's discussion Lost freeview only getting Optus test signal, trouble finding correct dish position with sat finder
"I agree. Sounds like you are pointing at the wrong satellite. I have a K1 Plus Box on an old Sky dish. As soon as I entered the Optus D1 Satellite parameters (which were somehow missing in my particular box's ROM) it scanned all channels no…"

Biggles replied to Karl's discussion Pinehill site, Auckland
"Could be the current weather has a lot to do with it. Winds gusting around 40 knots plus play havoc with antennae."

Biggles replied to Jaynish's discussion Unable to find any Channel
"Don't know that I can help much more by direct contact. Once you have hooked the cable to the TV ANT input socket and plugged the other end to the wall socket (try each of them) go to Digital and follow the manual. I'm not familiar with…"

Biggles replied to Jaynish's discussion Unable to find any Channel
"OK. Thanks for the pictures. Makes things much easier. The two wall sockets both have f type connector so logically one is satellite and the other is UHF. Unfortunately they are not labelled. Best way to start is try the outside socket and connect…"

Biggles replied to Jaynish's discussion Unable to find any Channel
"Well what's connected to the wall socket at the roof end? Is it a UHF Antenna or a Dish. What model of TV? Does it have Sat and UHF Tuners? More info needed. Perhaps upload a picture of your wall jacks and how you are connecting?"

Biggles replied to William Mansell's discussion Auto Tune not finding channels in Epsom
"OK. The UHF is vertically polarised so that's OK. However there is a VHF antenna there too and what appears to be a diplexer combining the two antennae.  I'm surprised however that there is no signal strength at all. That definitely…"

Biggles replied to William Mansell's discussion Auto Tune not finding channels in Epsom
"OK. The Indoor Antenna will be useless so don't even try with that. If using Remuera make sure the antenna is vertically polarised and try manually tuning channels 28, 32, 34, 36. What signal strength do yo get. Check also to see if there is a…"

Biggles replied to Kelly's discussion New Panasonic DMR-HWT260GN - can't find channels to tune
"No. The Panasonic is UHF only and requires a UHF Antenna. It doesn't have a Satellite Tuner so won't work with a Dish."

Biggles replied to ru speakman's discussion satilite
"If you're unable to get anything with the LNB freq set to 10750 or 11300 then it's probably time to get a Pro Installer to set it up. It possible your LNB is dead or the dish is out of alignment. Without some pro gear it's impossible…"

Biggles replied to Theageingrocker's discussion Intermittent loss of picture and sound
"Definitely, if reception is possible at your location. Terresrial is HD with multiple sound tracks (some channels) while satellite is really bad SD and 2 channel sound."

Biggles replied to Speedbrake's discussion Nelson Kaka Hill
"Yeah. And the TVNZ website isn't any help for reporting broadcast faults either. One of the problems with free to air TV I guess."

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?
