    Default Where are the channels?

    So, just got my new box.. (cheers max_gee) and bear in mind, I'm novice at this, so it will be fun learning..

    I intend to plug it into the cable network I have, but until I sort out the drop cable, I thought I'd plug it into my Sky Digital satellite dish..

    So, when I select astra 28.2 and do a slow scan, I only get 3 channels (encrypted I assume, because although I get to see the EPG, I don't get anything else.) Signal strength varies, but seems quite high. (75%-90%)

    So far I've not downloaded any images, or installed any Bouquets or anything. I thought, I'd get used to it before I messed with it. so it has the base Neutro image on it... So Ive simply plugged it in.

    Cheers

    try another scan on 28.2 this time make sure NIT scan is selected.

    you will pick up over 700+ channles (most encrypted tho)

    Hi Max_gee

    Hmm. Ive set it to NIT (fast) scan on Astra 2ABD e28.2 , and it scans and does not pick up anything. It does not even find any transponders. Ive taken the input lead from a working sky system.

    Any ideas?

    Hi All,

    Sorted this by the way. I searched on Eurosat 28.5, and it picked up the channels on Astra 2D.

    Cheers
