Do you mean East 28?
How did he test it? Is it reporting any signal at all?

yes the standard freesat one 28.2 is it cant remember? Not sure how he tested it. In my old house the chap lined it up then after he went I setup Mepo and it was fine.

Im not sure he has faced it the right way looking outside, it looks off by a few degrees - would that matter?

At the mo I'm doing a Mepo scan using all sorts of LNB's and getting a few channels.

What are the channel names? You need to work out which satellite they're broadcast from. Is the language on them English?

Keep your satellite man's phone number handy .. sounds like you might have him coming back.

If you do get him back, plug the cables into your box while he's there and make sure you're picking up the channels before he goes.

turned out it was a brand new but duff LNB! He stuck a spare 1 port on the dish to keep me going for the match! Coming back MOnday with a new 4 port one. :smashin:
