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

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…"

Biggles replied to Karyn Jensen 's discussion Dish S7070
"If the channels disappeared suddenly rather than deteriorated over time it could be a STB failure. I'd check the setup with a known working box first before replacing the LNB."

Biggles replied to Patricia Harkins's discussion Which Freeview recording box?
"HTPC = Home Theatre PC. Usually a low cost small footprint silent box. No fans to make noise while watching."

Biggles replied to Karyn Jensen 's discussion Dish S7070
"Check your signal strength in the Tuning Menu too. My Sat receiver shows around 56% signal and 40 - 50% quality an my 9 yr old Dish and LNB. A Sky Tech told me 50 -60% is considered about normal."

Biggles replied to Patricia Harkins's discussion Which Freeview recording box?
"Never had any problem with my Panasonic recorders. On the other hand the DishTV and others seem to be plagued with problems. Quality = price paid. Forget about Freeview Plus. It's rubbish and full of bugs.  Use a HTPC instead for online…"

Biggles replied to Andrew's discussion Trying to get signal via screw sockets
"As I figured you probably have Sat and UHF distributed on the one cable. Auto tuning will have found the UHF signals OK. You'll only get Freeview Satellite if your TV has an inbuilt Satellite Tuner."

Biggles replied to Andrew's discussion Trying to get signal via screw sockets
"If it's a dish only  then only if you use a Satellite STB. Check with your building manager about the TV Signal distribution for the apartments. I would have thought it would be normal to have UHF distrubution in apartments as well as…"

Biggles replied to Alan Stanton's discussion recording
"That's normal. Your STB obviously has two tuners and when both are recording channels on different MUX you can only watch another channel that is also on one of those two MUX. TV1 and 2 are on one MUX, Prime is on another and TV3 is on yet…"

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?
