Ikonvert TV converter box is reading lnb short what is this


'LNB' is low noise block. It is the receiver that is located in the middle of your satellite dish where the signal is collected from the dish.

You need to check the wiring at the rear of the receiver and all the way to the LNB itself.

Can I watch different channels on a single dish using one set top box and let me tell how many tvs I can connect to one dish


Only one. If you want use another tv you need one more connection. That means one more set top box and LNB with multiple out. If the provided do not have the Multiple OUT LNB then you need one more dish antenna.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

I have a foxstat -HDR humax box and I am getting no or bad signal on the TV downstairs. I can get some channels but not all.


I suspect that the box upstairs is a Freesat box; a Freeview box requires a feed from an aerial, not a dish.

The problem you are seeing may be caused by water in the cables, if they are not sealed at the LNB. The LNB may be failing, but dish misalignment is more likely.

As there is an unused output on the LNB, try swapping one of the feeds with a poor signal to it.

Why is my sky+hd box not getting a signal?


Bad dish alignment. Rain or snow blocking the dish. Leaves on a tree blocking sight of the satellite. Scaffolding/building works blocking sight of the satellite. Fault on the cables. Damaged or faulty LNB

I have a Sky+HD box on a unit, the opposite side of the living room to the where the tv unit is. The Sky box can only go here due to satellite dish cables. I have run coaxial cables underneath the floor...


Unscrew f connectors from LNB, and rewire to desired location, or tell sky to do it or you'll leave. They will put you through to retentions, but will end up sending someone out to do te job

How do i connect my samsung dvd recorder sh853m to my free sat box? Also is it possible to record a channel from free sat onto my samsung recorder while also watching a different free sat channel.


Hi,

If it's a Standard-Definition (SD) FreeSat box then a SCART cable would be the normal method of connection to your DVD recorder. This would connect to the SCART/EXT OUT socket on the back of the FreeSat box and the SCART/EXT IN on the DVD recorder. However, this depends on whether your FreeSat box has multiple SCART outputs and whether you are using a SCART cable to connect to the TV.

If there is no spare SCART output socket on the FreeSat box, then you need to use an alternative connection which is common to both devices, i.e. co-axial, and make sure you are connecting from an OUT socket on the FreeSat box to an IN socket on the DVD recorder.

If you have a FreeSat HD box, then you need to connect it to the DVD recorder using an HDMI cable or another cable type that will carry an HD signal.

You will only be able to record from a different Satellite channel if you have a Dual LNB with 2 feeds to the FreeSat box. The LNB is the receiver that attaches to the arm on the satellite dish. You can determine whether you have a Dual LNB as you will have 2 cables from the Dish to the FreeSat box. They may be joined as one cable, but there will be 2 F-plugs (threaded co-axial plug) on each end.

If you don't have 2 cables then you will only be able to record the same channel as you are watching. To record another channel, you need a FreeSat box that supports this feature and each channel needs also a separate feed from the dish.

Hope this helps. If you need any further assistance please post back with the brand model number of your FreeSat box and details of the connections you are using between the FreeSat box, the TV and the DVD recorder.

Regards,
BElectric

Panasonic TX P50V10B Plasma TV


In order to get any of the Freesat channels, you need to connect a Satellite dish to your TV. If you have a Sky dish, you simply need to run an extra Cable from the LNB from the dish and connect to your socket on the back of your TV.
In order to get Freeview channels and Analogue channels, you need to connect a aerial to the back of the TV.
There is a menu option for the TV to start straight to the AV input (your Sky HD box). It is Menu > Setup > Other Settings > Power on Preference. Select 'AV' for your TV to start on Sky HD.
Also even if you have your TV to start on TV, when you turn on your Sky HD box, it should automatically switch to the Sky box.

How do i fit a dual LNB so i can change channels


HELLO
A word of warning! Do not attempt to split any feed coming from a single output LNB to another satellite box - you will be asking for trouble!
Now for the solution. If you are using a standard sky minidish you will need a 40mm adaptor kit, a dual output LNB and another length of satellite cable (Webro WF100 prefereably) but I suppose RG-6 will do the job providing it is not too long (around 10-15 meters or so) a couple of F connectors and self-amalgamating rubber tape.
Power off everything! Remove the old LNB and to do this you'll notice a plastic rivet on the LNB arm of the dish which must be removed. When you have done that and the new LNB is place (don't tighten everything yet), connect your current length of cable to one output and the new length to the other (finger tight should be fine) and make sure BOTH of your boxes are connected. Remember to waterproof those LNB connections.
Power on! You should be getting pictures - if not the LNB will need skewing round a bit. Look at the dish from the front and turn the LNB in a clockwise position say the 2 o'clock position - that should do the trick. Then tighten everything.
I wish you well with it - good luck! (:-)
