    Using a satellite dish for Wi-Fi signal

    Hi. Thanks in advance for any replies. I have a trailer in a seasonal RV park. The trailer is permanent in that we don’t take it on the road. There’s a Wi-Fi hotspot provided by the park but the signal is weak at my site. I have line-of-sight to the hotspot. I also have an Archer C9 router...

    Satellite dish no signal issue

    Hello all, we moved into a rental recently and I'm having an issue with the aerial. The property has a sky dish installed and the landlord has told me he previously had Sky. We purchased a Freesat box and although it'll find 108 channels, once we click on a channel all we see is "no signal"...

    LG Freesat tuning using existing satellite cables - programmes but no picture?

    Hi. Just bought a Lg 55 Nano866PA. The previous owners of the house had Sky. I connected one of the cables into the input port and scanned for channels. It found all of the freesat channels (Edit: tried both cables - same thing 150 channels). I can see them in the guide. But when I try to...

    Sony X85J satellite channel issue

    I'm having an issue with my Sony X85J. I generally watch live TV through the satellite connection, and on three occasions during the last week it won't view any channels. It sees them in my TV guide but just won't view any - all I get is the spinning icon forever. Turning the TV off doesn't do...

    Multiple LNB's on Sky Dish?

    Is it possible to mount an additional LNB on a Sky dish so I can have 19.2E and 28.2E on the same dish? Currently it has an LNB for Sky Q (the dish was only installed around 18 months ago) so I know I will have to change that over, but I hope it will be suitable enough for 2 satellites without...

    Toshiba Satellite C50-A-19T laptop

    Bear with, this could be a bit long winded. My Toshiba laptop battery died, but obviously still works on the power lead. So, I bought a new battery that although not from Toshiba should be compatible. I fitted and charged it up fully, but now when I start my laptop all I get is a black screen...

    Tuning FTA UK channels & Saorview channels via satellite tuner

    My parents currently have Sky TV but they are getting older now and they are struggling with switching the TV on, and trying to access the Sky channels as they sometimes press random buttons and inadvertently switch the Sky box off, or the TV and then don't know what to do. Sometimes the Sky box...

    0% Signal Strength, but 80% Signal Quality!

    Hi All, I'm helping my dad connect his Freesat enabled TV to an old Skydish which hasn't been used by him previously but which we think was used by the previous house owners ~3 years ago. After connecting up and doing an auto tune the TV finds 145 satellite channels but all of them show Zero...

    Cables on VM V6 - How much difference does Quality of cable make?

    Evening all, Have a VM V6 box connected directly to the VM feed then out to TV via a fibre HDMI. Works nicely. But I need run a feed from that position to another room so that we can use the same VM V6 box there. Essentially extending the VM installed cables to another room. Sounds odd but we...

    Sky Q Satellite Wall Plate

    I'm moving my Sky Q box to a different part of the living room which requires moving the twin satellite cable I like using wall plates and have used them throughout my surround sound install. Would something like the image attached be suitable to bring the sat cable into the house. Or am I...

    Satellite dish and LNB for Freesat box

    I bought a Gt media V7S Freesat receiver two years ago in error thinking it was a Freeview box. I kept it all the same but never bought a dish for and would like to try it now. It's a lot more flimsy than I expected but I have to try and put it to good use. I need advice as I am overwhelmed with...

    Satellite for surround sound positioning (Q800a)

    Bought a brand new Q800a for £450 (yippee at that price). Thinking satellite speakers but think they’d have to be positioned right next to the sofa. Big room but 65inch is plenty big enough. Soundbar will have to be on the floor as the LG tv screen starts 4cm from table so can’t fit soundbar on...

    Satellite signal amplifiers
