Was it working before a factory reset?

Worth checking the LNb configuration set up, should be KU universal.

What size dish are you using?? Eutelsat W2 failed at the beginning of 2010 and was replaced by 3 spare satellites - and some of the DigitAlb channels are transmitting off the elderly Sesat 1 which to be blunt is putting a dreadful signal into western Europe.

You are probably getting 10719V, 10758V, 10941V ok - they are on the high power Eurobird 16A

The HD channels are on 10975H and are transmitted off Sesat 1

Has it ever worked? If so the you just need to tweak something in the settings.

DOUBLE Check or triple check you have the right parameters entered - its easy to miss something really simple.

You should have

10975H
27225
2/3

Cant see any evidence of a frequency change for the HD channels in recent months - if it happened KoS missed it in their updates.

Sound like the dish alignment may need tweaking - big dishes need setting up very accurately.

Also make sure you have all the technical parameters set correct for the HD channels - as HD have more parameters than usual

DVB / DVB-S2
8QSPK
pilot ON and OFF

We will get you up and running somehow :D

Put an advert in the installer wanted subsection asking for a quote if you want the alignment checking - we have at least 2 of our staff who do installs not too far from you
