Troubleshooting for TWH-S1

If you do not see the signal strength and quality value, then please check that you have entered the correct numbers and the settings are the same as given in the instructions.

If the settings are correct, then you have a reception problem. This can happen if your signal is coming from the dish incorrectly. It is a common and known issue on many ageing Sky installed dishes on which the LNB (equipment that sits on the arm of the dish) converts the signal incorrectly.

If you are using a Sky dish and you do not see signal strength and quality, you can try the following to force a signal:

  • Increment the frequency by 3 until you get a signal. For example, the frequency is 12519 and adding 3 to it will give a new frequency of 12522 and adding another 3 will give 12525.
  • To get a permanent fix, it is best to replace the malfunctioning LNB as over a period of time, the calculated value will change and you will eventually lose the signal.  You can find DIY guidelines here, or contact your installer for a quote to replace the LNB for you.  If you don't have a preferred installer, you can get a quote for an accredited installer from Clearvision Communications here.
