Biggles replied to Paul's discussion Freeview not showing on New LG TV
"Probably got the wrong LNB freq set in the setup. If 10750 doesn't work try 11300. If you check the setup in the Freeview box you'll find the LNB freq that you have been using."

"I presume you mean like this? If you are only getting the TVNZ MUX then there must be a problem with your antenna/cabling system."

Biggles replied to Jeremy E's discussion RT on Freeview?
"Probably not offered due to lack of a market for it. To be honest I'd never heard of it til I saw your post. There's also limited bandwidth available though they could easily dump all the +1 channels which are all SD and AAC2 sound.…"

Biggles replied to Matto's discussion Loss of Prime Reception regularly
"Wow. Bit of a rat's nest! If you had a masthead amp there would be a power plugpack somewhere feeding power for it up the co-ax. What you have at the top is more likely a diplexer connecting the VHF and UHF antennae together. Ideally you need…"

Biggles replied to Matto's discussion Loss of Prime Reception regularly
"Is the Amp necessary? What happens if you remove it and just use a decent UHF splitter? If you have to use an amp it should ideally be at the masthead, not in the cupboard."

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?
