Hi,
I recently bought a genuine dreambox 525hd with card and ci slot.
I flashed the box with open pli 6.2.
My problem is that scanning 13e I'm not getting all the channels I should, on my 800hd I scan in over 1,900, on the 525 only about 900, the reason I first noticed this was because I was missing nova, done every scan and manually input frequencies and nothing, any help would be great.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

It sounds like perhaps you may only be receiving one polarity using the 525 or perhaps it is not set up correctly. Have you checked the polarity of received channels on the 525?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Polarity perhaps, or it might be the 22kHz tone setting is failing to switch to the second frequency band.

Are there other bits of equipment in the line to the dish ? or is it a long run of cable ?
