Hello John,
http://www.dishpointer.com/ is a good web site just incase your hitting the wrong satellite your wanting to line this upto 28.2e Astra.

If after doing this the ID does not work then it may be worth forcing a download onto the sky box.

If you not familiar in how to do this, then follow these steps. turn the power off to the sky box or unplug from the back of the box itself. Then what i want you to do is hold down the Backup button on the front of the box. then reinsert the power or turn back on. while you have the backup button pressed in.

Hold this button down until all the lights on the front of the box illuminate. You should now see on the the screen a warning message come up informing you not to disconnect the power or the sky cable.

This takes approx 10 minutes to do this. It takes longer if you watching this so make yourself a Cuppa.

Hope this helps you out.

How can I fix a no signal message on my sky+hd box


If you receive some channels and not others here's what to check.
Has your dish moved? has it been windy?
Turn off the sky box at the wall and check the two cables coming in from the dish. Unscrew the two "F" connectors and check there is a bit of cable sticking out of the end, if it's not long enough you will lose some channels. if you strip the cable back and make them too long then you will not get the plug back on. Be careful here as the middle cable must be straight to fit in the hole and the outer braiding must not touch the center cable. Make sure the box is off at the wall when handling this cable as there is up to 18 volts on it.
Because you say "it powered on again" i'm thinking your box has a power supply problem. When they were made they did not use good quality parts so there is a repair kit of 15 capacitors that usually need changing. Let me know if you can't get it sorted as i have done these before.

Sky+hd box isn't getting a satellite signal


have you checked the cables to the lmb ( dish ).... or take the dish cables out of the back of the sky box. wet your finger and put finger on to the centre and out part of the cable connector that some times works. faling that the sky box may need a factory rest or is damaged or the lmb has gone.

Sky is saying there is no signal. Turn box off and on again. I have done this but still get no signal. I have freeview only channels on my sky box


Hi,

Firstly, you don't get Freeview through your Sky box. If you are watching Freeview channels then it's from an aerial connection. If you are getting a 'No signal' message on your TV, the first things to check are:

1. Check that you have selected the correct input source on your TV. If you are using a 'co-ax' connection (standard aerial cable) you will have to select this manually from the remote. If you are using a SCART connection, all you need to do is turn the Sky box off and back on - but you've done this already.
2. Check the connection from your Sky box to your TV - disconnect it, check that the cable and connectors aren't damaged then re-connect it.
3. Check the cable between the dish and the Sky box. Unplug this from the Sky box and reconnect it.
4. Check that your viewing card is correctly inserted. This is unlikely to be the problem as it doesn't usually result in a 'no signal' message, but remove it and re-insert it anyway.

Finally, it's very windy tonight and this can affect the Sky signal if your Sky dish isn't properly secured. It's possible that your dish has been moved by the wind and is no longer aligned with the satellite. If none of the above work, you should inspect the dish as soon as conditions are safe enough to do so. If you can move it by hand, it can probably be moved by the wind.

Try these tests and post back and I will try to assist further if the problem has not been resolved.

Regards,
BElectric

How do I setup my full hd freesat tv I have sky + do I take the dish cable out of the sky box or do I need another cable from the dish


If you really want to do this, well then you could use and antenna switcher, a small control box that the Antenna from the dish plugs into it and the Sky Box & Freeview each, plug separately into that box too, and then, you can select, which one the antenna is connected to. (Some even have remotes) OR you could simply "Split" the signal "IN" with an Antenna "Splitter" and run one feed to Sky & the other to Freeview. Now thats all amusing that you can get freeview from that Dish.

The Sky HD Box keeps losing the signal on every channel except terrestial 1, 2 3, 4 and 5. An error message comes up with 'no satellite signal being received' and codes 28 and 49 and to get the signal...


could be any of the following;

1 dish out of alignment (re-align dish),
2 faulty LNB (low noise block) on the dish (likely) replace
faulty box, even more likely

How do i set up my plasma tv just to watch sky on the tv i was given a tv pioneer pdp-42mve1 and have got the power lead and a lead with a scart and 6 push in leads coluers are green blue blackyellow red...


Hello Paul,
all you need to do is plug the power in, put the scart lead into the back of your Pioneer tv, the other end of your scart into the bottom scart of your sky box named TV.

you will also need to connect the sky cable to the box to receive your signal. its a F type connector ie it screws on.

The other cable you have with the 6 push in coloured leads they are Component cable and the red and white ones are Audio cables. You will not need these cable unless your sky box is a HD box then i would suggest you get a HDMI cable instead of using component (less cables showing) dont be fooled into buying gold plated HDMI cables as they do not make any difference to the picture Quality as the back of the sky box is alley and so is the telly. So please dont waste your money on that type of cable.

Hope this Helps

My Sky system says there is no satellite signal being received. Have tried disconnecting box etc with no improvement.What else can I do?


press services then system set up then signal test the signal strenth and qaulity should be about half way at least it shows up grey lock indicator should be ok if it shows not locked your dish has been moved and needs to be alighned do this when the weather is fine clounds and rain reduce the signal and may even stop it all together sky will charge you £65 to alighn the dish but you can buy a meter and do your self get 1 from bandq ebay maplins worth checking for breakes in the cable going from your box to the dish and if you can try your box on a friends dish just to rule out a faulty box of course there is a chance the lnb on the dish has gone faulty but you can get these cheap to or even borrow a friends to try unscrew the cable and look how it is fixed on useualy they just pull of but it might have a clip on or tape on
