Welcome to the forum.
Setup requires access to 11428 H, the freesat transponder, transmitted on the U.K. beam. I would guess you are not getting a good signal. You don't need to be in the U.K. just to be able to receive the frequency.Sun 18 Nov 2018 6:35:33 #2 |
If you can get into the menus
Menu setup - Manual tune - Right - Transponder - all - right OK move down the transponder list to locate the Freesat home transponder.
On my Box it's labelled 11426 H 27500 2/3. Look at the strength and quality shown at the bottom of the screen.
Click OK on this and press down to highlight the Search button
This should find 18 channels
