Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I purchased Goodmans GFSAT200HD freesat receiver yesterday. I connected it to my dish and it worked correctly downloading software, stations etc as per Goodmans quick start up guide. The final part of this procedure was for the TV it was connected to to show that it had identified over 80 stations, which it did. At this stage the TV screen went blank, and there was no further response between the set top box and the TV. The light on the set top box showed that it was switched on but it was if the box had frozen in the off position. As the box is not responsive and there does not appear to be a reset button I dont know how to reactivate it. The menu has a facility to return the box to factory settings but as the box does not respond I cannot get the menu up. Even if the satalite signal was poor I would expect the menu to apear. Television Samsung 32" LCD HDMI/HDMI cable used Can You Help Please Regards Eric Russell Tele 02380253789 russell.fairwinds@talktalk.net

Sky problem


Freeview has nothing to do with satellite. FreeSAT is the one that uses a satellite dish for reception. FreeVIEW is received through the aerial.

Also, don't fall for the "digital aerial" scam. I install aerials as part of my business. I've been to homes with aerials 20 years old, covered in soot from the chimney and they still pick up Freeview perfectly well. Equally, I've been to homes where the owner has bought some gold plated multi-finned "digital high gain" monstrosity that has awful reception characteristics.

If your TV aerial is okay, then just plug it in to your Freeview receiving TV and do the tuning.

If you do want Freesat then you will need a satellite dish along with a Freesat receiver.

Humax Freesat was working fine then lost signal and now is not reognising postcode. We have unplugged/repluged, checked all cables (all OK) and tried to restart but as it is now not recognising postcode...


This can happen if the dish is slightly misaligned. I believe the postcode tables are read from a satellite which is about 0.3 degrees away from the Astra satellites. If your dish is slightly misaligned it may not be able to receive it correctly, also the following is the standard procedure which you've probably already been through, but I hope it helps:

1. Freesat Detection Fails / Invalid Postcode
  • Unplug the Foxsat-HDR from the mains and unplug the cable from your dish which is connected to the LNB IN
    connection.
  • Check that the "F-type" connector is firmly on the end of the cable.
  • Power on the and follow the Installation Wizard again.
2. If still not Detecting the signal or verifying postcode
  • Select NEXT through the Installation Wizard and then FINISH at the end.
  • Press the OK button to enter the SETUP menu and Select Manual Tune.
  • Select the following Transponder (11428 H 27500 A) from the list of Transponders.
  • Check that you are receiving stable levels for both Signal Strength & Signal Quality or >50%.
  • If you are not receiving sufficient Signal on this Transponder then you may require an installer to check your
    Dish Alignment, LNB, cabling, or connectors.

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

My second television I have freesat ,the remote a goodmans will not work,it is not the batteries,have only had the goodmans free sat for a couple of weeks is there anything I can do?


First find out how many digits of code your remote neeeds for your TV? Then you can input the code on number at a time until it works. Some remote only use two digits, but the lat model TV may need five digits. You can google the codes for goodman's remote for freesat if you know the TV brand name..

I am about to receive an LG32LF4700 Freesat/HD TV If I disconnect the SKY Box and connect the TV direct to the Dish cable will I receive Freesat HD channels. Also can I connect an extra bedroom TV into the...


Yes you can split the signal out from the back of the Freesat/HD (not the TV)to the second TV.
Look what outputs are on the Freesat box - the RF (standard cable) output should go to the 2nd TV (TV set to CH3) and the a/v cables,HDMI or DVI cable should go to the new TV - Note:To receive HD the output from the Freesat should be either HDMI,DVI or Composite output (RGB video jacks) with red White for audio. If you have HDMI this is best - it also provides audio.

Missing channels on my Goodmans GFSAT200HD


I had this problem, a total reset did the trick. Unplug everything, (mains, video and LNB) and then hold the power button for 30seconds, then plug the LNB, video (HDMI/Scart), and power back in (in that order). Then the problem should be solved. If it isn't try running the first time installation again. If it still doesnt work I can't help sorry.

Clock Setting ?????


When a station is tuned in the unit will decode the incoming clock data after 2 minutes will display the correct time when the 'DSP' button is pressed.
Note: some stations do not transmit a PTY or CT information & therefore the clock display may not be available.
For clock setting it is recommended to tune to a National Radio Station.
Hope This Helps.
