More on the above. the card for aurora was faulty and it works now.
secondly i found out that austar has programmed out my big dish as well as the humax box.
and i was paying austar for this service in the first place.
(and still do.)
have to now get a second austar box and dish to recover things.
i understand thousands of humax and other boxes and dishes have been sidelined in this move.

576p means 576 lines, progressive scan. 576 is number of visible lines on the UK system (and other nominally 625 line countries). The normal transmission system for these countries is 576i (interlaced scan), so I suspect that you are only seeing the 576p indication because there are no channels, and your TV is interpreting this as progressive scan.
The reason for no channels may be a poor signal from the aerial, or that the device (Humax or TV) has not been tuned. If you have power-saving enabled on the Humax, it will not pass on the aerial signal to the TV when the Humax is in standby. If this is the case, either turn power-saving off, or use a splitter to feed the aerial separately to the TV and Humax.
What are you getting on your TV 1 screen? Are you getting 015, acquiring satellite signal or weak or no signal, blue/black screen or snowy screen? Each of these problems requires certain troubleshooting steps. For the 015 message, a component from the Dish to the receiver may be bad. It could be weather related. For the other problems, the TV may not be on the correct input setting or channel. If you can provide more information, I would be happy to assist you.
Are you in a poor signal aera? The Lowry box is shockingly bad at picking up low signals. <br />
I had lots of problems with it, including a missing/intermittant itv channel.<br />
I swapped mine for a phillips
unplug the power from the reciever for a few moments. plug it back in and let it load. once its finished turn to channel 201. Usually it the reciever is on an unavailable channel (channel with no programming) when it restarted it will go back to that unavailable channel hince the black screen and no sound.
I have found that with an ordinary antenna connected to the converter box it can receive nearly all channels, however I have run into cases where I had to use an amplified TV antenna to pick up signals. I have started telling folks that when they install their converter boxes to try to use the plain old rabbit ears antenna, but if that does not work, use an amplified antenna, and that usually does the trick.
if you are getting signal of the proper strength and quality the cabling is good.the problem is the box trying to decode the signals.a lot of signals are encripted and have to be decoded by the box.if the box is not responding fast enough you will see bloches on the tv.if you see scrambled channel you are not payinfor that channel.and if you are paying for a channel and it comes up scrambled your box is not working correct.get your company to upgrade the box.
