Can anyone give me an idea why I am only getting group 1 freeview and prime sattelite.

My dish is an older dual sky.

I choose optus d1 to scan but these are the only channals showing up.

Maybe time to replace your LNB?

Hi Chris

Biggles is right, its time to get a LNB (Low Noise Blocker), over time they age and become unreliable especially with the older SKY ones, you can get them available at a local installer or online at sites such as trade me for a good price!

Let me know if you need any further assistance

Cheers, Joshua

Cheers men.
Thanks for the quick reply, I have another on standby so will replace when I get the chance.
I did not think that this could be the problem.
Thanks again

No worries Chris
