I have never had any experience of such a card but I am sure you will need to set up the lnb details in the menu somewhere, it will need setting to universal.

Do we assume you were receiving a picture before you powered down and disconnected the sky box?

also have you tried setting a channel as per the details here

A couple of screen shots of your setup menus would help us sort it out for you. :)

You forgot to plug the LNB cable into the dvb-s card.:-rofl2

Sorry, couldn't resist.

right here goes
sky system is working fine,so I assume no problem with the dish or lnb,
software seems ok, and has been updated as per the kworld website.
I am assuming the dish points somewhere around the 28 deg mark as this seems to be the only group of sats I get a signal from( eurobird & some astras)
when scanning for channels these are the settings;-

satelite = eurobird 1 + astra 2a,2b,2d
lnb = Universal
lnb power = enabled
lo oscilator freq = 9750
hi oscilator freq = 10600
switch frequency = 11700

with these settings you scan for channels and get the following options:-

scan by default table

or

free scan by specific range
the second option allows two settings,
frequency (mhz) - (default is 10970)
symbol rate(ksps) - (default is 28850)

then it starts to scan for channels

the console reports 100%quality and around 50+db strength

it runs the scan and appears to find PAT - PMTs - SDT (or at least it checks all three as found.

but it never reports any channels found, have tried all sorts of different settings, satelite groups etc but cant get past here,

Hope that helps , I am now at a loss as to what to try next, I am assuming that I have missed something simple.

If the default table is up to date , the channels should scan in OK with "scan by default table"

By the looks of it, the second option is for scanning individual transponders.

Try scanning 10773 MHz (Horizontal polarisation), with symbol rate 22000 (FEC=5/6)

You should then get some of the BBC channels.

Does it show a list of transponder frequencies when selecting the Astra 28.2 satellite?

Can you not take a screen shot?

Go HERE and download ver. 4.62.6 near the botom of the page.
ProgDVB supports KWorld cards.

Set up the LNB etc under the Settings/DiSEqC menu then click on the large green dot and go... Properties, List, Add, then find Astra 2a etc and OK all.
Then click Channel list, channel search and click on the sat you've just added and see what the scan is like.

Nope.

When I said version 4.62.6 I meant it, NOT 5.09.

Click on the 4.x in the first screen, then scroll down and click on 4.62.6 and download and install that one.

Please let us know how you get on after installing that one.

Here's some piccies.
