I have noticed that many people asking for help with tuning Freeview don't specify a lot of information (some give none). If people have old VCRs, DVD Recorders and/or old Sky boxes should power them…Continue

Biggles commented on leas's blog post can I use my UHF HARD DRIVE through a satellite box (I am semi rural and only have Satellite.
"OK. I got a bit confused and thought the box with the 2 SCART sockets was the DVD but on looking closely again I see it is actually the Sat Box. Looks the same as my old Pace Sky Box. I think to do what you want to is fairly simple. You need a SCART…"

"Hmm. Tricky setup. That looks like an older Analogue Panasonic like I used to have so it won't have Freeview built in. And the TV doesn't have HDMI input? Can't really remember how I had mine all connect as I had Sky in the mix as…"

"Make sure the Audio leads are plugged into the input sockets on the CRT TV and not the output sockets. Easy to confuse them. If they are in the correct socket then it would appear there's no sound out of the decoder. Can you post pictures of…"

"Depends on what you mean by "hardrive with a built in freeview". If as your profile suggests you mean you have a Panasonic UHF Recorder then yes it is possible to hook up the Composite Video and Audio outputs to the external Composite A/V…"

Biggles replied to Michael Robert East's discussion Freeview Decoder works Freeview TV doesn't
"If you unplugged the sky dish cable from the Sky box and plugged it into the sat socket on the TV and can't get a picture then you obviously have an incorrect parameter in the TV setup menu. Most likely culprit is the LNB frequency. If 10750…"

"I think you'll find your TIVO will still work OK as a TV Tuner/STB after the shutdown but you will no longer have any EPG or programmed recording functions available. Not sure if Timer Record may still work. Basically it will be just a bare…"

"Had you thought about trying one of these WiFi extenders? https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/NETTPL2841/TP-Link-TL-WR841N-300Mbps-Wireless-N-Router-2T2R-4 It is probably much more sensitive than the STB's built in WiFi. Just locate near the STB…"

Biggles replied to Jill Nutsford's discussion Reset of freeview after removal of Sky
"The top connectors are Component video plus audio inputs. The bottom are Composite video and audio inputs. The red white and yellow out (composite AV) from a STB should go the the bottom red white and yellow connectors on the TV."

Biggles replied to Jill Nutsford's discussion Reset of freeview after removal of Sky
"As I said before, we need more information. What is the make and model of your TV?. Are you using a STB? If so what make and model? Sat or UHF? What is the coax in your bedroom connected to, a Dish or UHF or both? How is everything connected…"

Biggles replied to Theageingrocker's discussion Antenna Power Overload Detected
"Does the message disappear if you unplug the coax from the Dish? If so it will rule out the STB and indicates a problem with the cable or LNB."

"Or you could just use Timer Record instead. This happens quite a lot and is usually fixed with the next EPG update."

Biggles replied to Rose Voice's discussion Can I use freeview when sky is still subscribed to ???
"Check you have the correct LNB setting in the setup menu. If 10750 doesn't work try 11300. Can you post a photo of the tuning setup screen showing your parameters? They need to match those for the Sky Decoder."

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?
