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.

You can't. You either pay Austar for the service, or you put an aerial on your roof and get over air stations and run a cable, or you get another cable or satellite company to hook you up,v or you experiment.
see if the is an AV button and press that
it changes"the signal in" source n ( pay channel,free to air antenna, x-box, dvd, etc)
the snowy screen indicates no signal and the icon is suggestingn it is looking for a input source
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.
You will need to manually tune to your preferred transmitter. The Humax will tune to the first decent signals it finds, so if signals from the Welsh transmitter are good and found before the transmitter you want, it will use them.
Or, you may be able to unlpug the aerial, start the auto retune, then replace the aerial after about 25% of the scan completes. You may need to adjust the % before replacing the aerial to ensure that only (and all) wanted channels are received.
