Since my missis has sunk my plans of a big dish until christmas I'm trying to resurrect my old sky dish with freesat. The dish and cable are existing, bought a cheapy pace receiver from fleabay. I can get 80-90% signal strength but no matter what I try I cant get a lock or any transponder ID's. I picked up a needle type signal meter and I can get full strength at about +2db. I've replaced the LNB with a new quad one. Tried all the different frequencys for 28.8E and 19.2E. My compass reckons Im pointing 34E, so with azimuth correction that should be OK. Maybe the box is knackered? I'm trying to get this sorted by 2 weeks so I can get shot of cable TV Should save me over a grand a year!!!
