Press EXIT to return to normal viewing.

A technical note about LNB Local Oscillator Frequency

During the normal scanning procedure, the receiver has automatically detected that this is the local oscillator frequency of the LNB.

Whatever LNB frequency is indicated in your LNC Local-freq field is the correct one for your installation and should not be altered without advice from someone who understands the down-converting principles.  I.e. a change from 10750 to 11300 would just lose all channels, but a slight change of +/- 5 may help correct for an aging LNB, if that is the problem.

Try the instructions here if you have the a 10750 LNB

Have re checked today that this still works and was successful and Prime is channel 10.

I have a 11300 LNB and have just carried out a Factory Restore and followed the instructions above for a 11300 LNB and the additional channels have appeared ok, i.e.

9 Bravo Plus 1

10 Prime

17 The Edge TV

Sorry I can't confirm if they still work with a 10750 LNB

Have tried to scan in channels as instructed but still have no Prime. If I enter channel 10 I get Choice!
