Please Note: This is for Freeview via Satellite (Not HD/ TV Built in) 

If you have decided to set up Freeview via satellite on your own and have installed everything in place including cables, dish and receiver. There may be a few more extra steps to complete before you can enjoy free crystal clear digital Television. This extra step may require you to adjust the LNB “Low Noise Blocker” which is the little machine at the front of the dish that feeds in satellite signals into your receiver.

If you do not have a signal coming through and you have aligned the dish 160E on Optus D1 you will need to twist the LNB clockwise so that the cabling that comes off it is at an 8’oclock position. See photo below:

Overtime some LNB’s may age a lot more than others so If you ever experience loss in picture during wet weather of summer weather please check the LNB, if in any case there is ongoing issues consult a local installer or replace the LNB which are widely available at hardware stores or at cheap prices on Trade Me.
