Hi technofiles, looking for some input regarding settings for the vast TV system.
Currently in Tassie, used the sta TV a few time without problem.

Recently tried to set up the (portable) system without success. I have a Satlink finder which has been faultless. Tried direct connect to the TV using the signal indicator to tune in with out sucess.
My current finder settings are :- Tp 12567. Sybol rate 27600, polarity H

Vast box settings. Frequency 12567, symbol rate 30000, polarity V, Lbn freq. 10700. Tested cables all seem ok. I'm beginning to to think the dish may be distorted as I have replaced the lnb.

Hope you can throw some light on the problem.

Cheers
Jon

Yer, they can be a PITA at times.

If you have Wikicamps, it is a very good tool for setting the dish as it gives the compass direction, elevation and the LNB skew angle. You can also use the camera to show exactly where in the sky the dish needs to point - very handy for working around trees.

Really doubt that it would be the dish unless you can see physical damage.

Last time I had problems it ended up being the LNB - I was reading it a 5 degrees but it was actually 0.5 degrees down at Busselton.

Your Decoder is not registered with Vast, ring them and have it reset. B

Can you get channel 800 or the ABC channels?

G,day Racy,
I had problems a while ago having not used the satellite for some time.
I contacted the people I brought the sat. dish from and they informed me that the satellite settings had changed assuming you are searching for the Optus satellite.
Have a search to check the settings that you need may have to be changed in the satellite finder.

Hi, thanks everyone for your input. All comments checked out without success.
Very puzzling with new lnb and good satfinder with correct settings signal quality is is less than 10%.Home in a week, so will have better access to diagnostics.

Cheers
