    Setting up satellite for multi Freesat system

    Hi all, the house I moved into a while ago has an old Sky dish that moves in the wind as the threads have been done up to tight in the past, so was thinking about changing it to a Triax like a couple of the neighbours have but looking on their site there's quite a few to choose from. Could...

    Use of a SAT splitter on two separate FreeSat TV sets

    I have for a number of years been using a twin user SAT Dish (like this one: Technisat Multytenne), connecting one cable to the "main" TV and the second cable to a second TV in a spare room (Samsung UE46C7700). I have now bought a new twin tuner TV (LG OLED 55 C8) to replace the "main" TV and...

    Missing Freesat channels after electrician moved the satellite socket

    Hi, I have a Humax Freesat box. Last week an electrician moved the socket on the wall (where I plug the RF cable in) a couple of meters. Since then the only channel I seem to be able to get is BBC2 HD and ITV HD (albeit slightly pixelated). The other channels display the message 'The receiver is...

    Question Using Freesat box without hard drive?

    My Humax HDR-1000s has recently succumbed to the missing hard drive fault. I can still hear the hard drive fire up when I start the box but no amount of factory resets or powering down has fixed it. I will carry on using the box as a receiver but I was just wondering, as the hard drive would no...

    C8 Freeview & Freesat USB Recording

    Does anyone know if you can record with the Freesat Tuner while simultaneously watching a Freeview channel. I know you cant watch a Freeview channel while recording another. I thought maybe utilising both Freesat and Freeview tuners may allow me this functionality. Has any one tried this and is...

    Question Another Sky / Freesat Question

    Apologies if this has been asked before here, I have searched various online communities, but I see conflicting answers over time (it seems to have been a popular question over the last 10 years), so looking for a definitive answer for 2020. I am currently a Sky customer of many years. Plan is...

    Samsung UE55NU8000 Recording from Freesat.

    Love the picture quality, recording from the built in Freesat tuner is frustrating. Sometimes it records from the start and at other times, starts recording several minutes into the program. Sometimes it doesn't record at all. One further point! The set has two LNB inputs and I assumed it...

    Advice for TV to handle Freesat, recording, on-demand services, preferably without extra boxes?

    Hi - new to the forums, done a bit of searching around, and ended up posting for advice... I currently have an (ageing) fairly ordinary TV, an even more aged DVD/VHS player (and quite a few DVDs), a Freesat dish with two cables, a Humax 500GB freesat box, and no rooftop aerial. I'd like to...

    Question Future of Freesat

    Simply does it have one? For example the Humax store has not got one single Freesat box in stock. RS have dropped Freesat and JL look to be going the same way.

    Sky to Freesat.

    A few years back I cancelled Sky and bought a Freesat box. Just plugged in the two sattelite cables and Freesat worked ok. Then we upgraded the Freesat box and kept the old one, not used. My daughter just decided to cancel Sky and I offered her our old Freesat box. I tested it to make sure it...

    Samsung NU7400 and FreeSat

    Hi, I have a Samsung TV UE50NU7400 and I thought it had FreeSat. I bought a coaxial cable and connected it to the wall socket (I know we have a satellite setup in the building) but nothing happens. I don't see any mention of FreeSat in the TV user manual, so I guess I was just mislead by the...

    Humax HDR-1100S Freesat 1TB issues

    Hi Folks, I purchased a Humax HDR-1100S Freesat 500GB box back in September. I was impressed by the box, it did everything it should do and it did it very well. I was so impressed I decided to buy the same box in the 1TB version for the extra storage space. Since getting the 1TB version it's...
