    Hi

    Just been given the above reciever by a friend, hooked it up to my sky dish thats not been used for years. It booted up with I think yumutu image/logo and listed a lot of channels but non that I could view even fta ones.

    Is this receiver any good to me or is it for bin.

    Regards

    Maybe the LNB is faulty and not the receiver, What is the quality and signal strength?

    Hi

    I`l have to reconnect tomorrow and check but from memory it was around 70ish, I remember there were 2 sig readings so I may be wrong there.

    Make sure that you have selected the correct satellite to scan. Also you might find that the transponder database is out of date
