20 Most Recent Humax FOXAT HDR DTV Receiver Questions & Answers

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
  • 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.

I had this problem, check your 2 aerial inputs on the back of your FOXSAT they should both be plugged into the IN sockets, that is sockets 1 and 3.

Check if your dish has moved or the cable is damaged.

This can be for any number of reasons including weak signals from those stations, a poor antenna, or a defective tuner in the receiver.

Without more information I can't even make a guess as to which one is your problem.

Just because you used to be able to get some stations before they went digital it does not mean you will be able to receive them with the same antenna and a new digital tuner. This has been written by many people besides me on a number of DTV web sites. My blog about antennas is at SolidSignal.com, my blog article links page on my web site is at: http://cs.yrex.com/ke3fl/KarrasCorner.htm

You should scan for channels again, as some were changed recently.

This can happen occasionally. It seems that the answer is to reformat the disk - having watched or transferred any required recordings first.
