Bill McMurray replied to Leon's discussion magictv 3600
"Sorry Willis and Biggles - My mistake. I should have said Terrestrial receivers have really only been around in great numbers for four years. We only really started installing terrestrial receivers in 2011. Prior to that people were buying up large…"

Bill McMurray replied to Leon's discussion magictv 3600
"Hi Leon, Dish TV in Hamilton here are the National sales and support for Magic TV boxes, so give them a call on 07-929-4123. I'm sure they'll be able to repair it, or supply a new front panel. Our experience out in the field here shows…"

Bill McMurray replied to Darren cole's discussion Lg Freeview tv
"Hi Darren, What's wrong with the picture? Is it grainy?, has it got wavy lines across it? is it in B & W? and I assume you are talking about the picture from the Sky receiver? Cheers, Bill."

Bill McMurray replied to Darren cole's discussion Lg Freeview tv
"Hi Darren, We're based in Hamilton and cover the Waikato but, unfortunately, you're just a bit too far North for us. So hopefully someone who services your area will read these posts. Cheers, Bill. "

Bill McMurray replied to Darren cole's discussion Lg Freeview tv
"Hi Darren, Someone, (The Sky Installer?) would have connected the cabling in the ceiling of your old place to create that "Feedback" system, so that the Sky signal would then feed back to the bedroom. Most houses are not wired up that way…"

Bill McMurray replied to Sportyguy's discussion Recieving Freeview HD
"Hi Sportyguy, You asked several questions here. 1. If the Freeview site said you won't get UHF, then you can just about guarantee you won't get UHF! I've found that, in Hamilton and the Waikato, those maps tend to be more…"

Bill McMurray replied to Paul Markham's discussion G-Code Recording
"Hi Paul, If my memory serves me right, "G Codes" were a bit of a "nine-day-wonder", on some models of VCR - mainly Mitsubishi?, about eight to ten years ago? Cheers, Bill."

"Do you have one of the new "Smart Meters" for your power?"

Bill McMurray replied to Graeme Dearness's discussion Signal level differences on FreeviewHD
"Hi Graeme, It sounds like a connection or cable is pulling the signal down. You say the T1050 is connected "first in line" - Not sure exactly what you mean by that, but if you have a splitter then swap over the outputs from the splitter…"

Bill McMurray replied to rubb3rfunk's discussion Stop showing after 1 hour without any error
"Hi rubb3rfunk, If the eprom erase doesn't fix it, then I'd look at your LNB, even though it is only a year old. - We do come across some that only last that long! The receiver "powers up" the LNB, so if you put your receiver in…"

Bill McMurray replied to John Carter's discussion UHF aerial connection question
"Just remember John that, if it's a Sky installation, then the dish, mount, stays AND cable remain Sky's property! So if you decide to reconnect Sky in the future, they may reconnect the cable to the Sky dish, or may charge you to…"

Bill McMurray replied to Robbo's discussion LNB Power
"Hi Robbo, LNB power should be "on", but if receiver works with it "off", don't worry about it. You may be powering the LNB through another setting, or it may an idiosyncrasy of that receiver. Because you were getting some…"

Bill McMurray replied to andrew kemp's discussion trouble with my topfield box
"Hi Andrew, Phone DishTV, as they were previously the Topfield agent. Give them the model number and they'll give you the "over-ride" pin number, to get you into the system, then you can set your own pin number after that. Cheers,…"

Bill McMurray replied to Kevin Stewart's discussion DishTV S7070 box differences
"Hi Kevin, It definately sounds like you have a fault in that receiver. Check your model number again because the 7070 is quite an old model now, replaced by the 7070r 2 - 3 years ago, then call DishTV on 0800DISHTV and they'll be able to help…"
