"Sounds like your dish could be pointing at the wrong satellite. Were you receiving OK before you got the new box and if so, what were you using?"

"You could try moving your indoor antenna to a better location, ideally near a window with direct line of sight to the Tx, but I'd definitely recommend an outdoor antenna. Also make sure your antenna is setup for vertical and not horizontal…"

Biggles replied to Lorilei's discussion Unable to receive TVNZ channels
"Check your signal strength. You will probably find it is rather low on the channels you are receiving in which case you need to install a UHF antenna on your roof. Indoor antennae are only satisfactory in very strong signal areas."

Biggles replied to david adamson's discussion Error code -2
"This is usually a problem with the EPG and nothing you can do about it. It is not a problem with your equipment.  It is usually fixed at the next EPG update. There has been several threads in the past regarding this problem."

Biggles replied to AB's discussion Disconnecting sky - what to do now?
"You can't use your Sky Dish. Your TV needs to be connected to a UHF antenna. If you can't see a UHF antenna on the roof then you will need to install one. http://freeviewforum.co.nz/forum/topics/aerials If you are not in UHF reception area…"

Biggles replied to Michael's discussion Australian Samsung Series 8 - not tunable to Freeview signal
"OK. Quality may be 0 but what about signal strength? Also probably a stupid question but have you plugged the UHF antenna into the Ant socket and not the Sat Dish Socket. According to the manual yours is a dual tuner (Sat & UHF)."

Biggles replied to Maraea Robertson's discussion Lost Maori Channels
"OK. After a manual tune ch38 or 39 have you checked channels above 800 to see if they are saved and stored there? A quick look at your TV's manual suggests the same procedure as for the Recorder should work."

Biggles replied to Maraea Robertson's discussion Lost Maori Channels
"Success with my Panasonic BWT720 following my manual retune for Maori and Te Reo. I went into the setup menu and successfully swapped Ch804 with Ch5 and Ch805 with Ch15 in the Channel List and I now have Maori and Te Reo saved in their correct…"

Biggles replied to Maraea Robertson's discussion Lost Maori Channels
"Having just checked my Panasonic Recorder Manual I found an obscure comment that indicates that after a Manual retune, if the channel number is already occupied then the new channel(s) will be allocated in the range 800 upwards."

Biggles replied to Maraea Robertson's discussion Lost Maori Channels
"Interesting problem. If you can't get Maori TV & Te Reo to work try selecting Channels 804 and 805. I too have a Panasonic Recorder and Maori TV (Logical Channel 5) says they are now in HD and to retune. So I just did a manual retune on…"

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?
