    Certain Channels Not Working?

    Hi Everyone

    I have just got my Openbox however there are some channels which come up Scrambled, I've tried adding my own transponders that I've found from other sites but there are a select few which I just can't seem to get working:

    Version: CHDS2-11-05-09

    Problem Channels:

    Watch (Watch +1 WORKS)
    Gold (Gold+1 WORKS)
    Dave (Davejavu WORKS)
    MTV
    Alibi (Alibi +1 WORKS)
    Channel 4 HD
    CBS Reality (CBS Reality +1 WORKS)
    MTV+1
    ALL MTV Music
    Channel 5 HD
    5 USA (Brings up TV Info)
    5 USA +1
    5*
    5*+1
    FX HD
    Syfy HD
    E4 HD
    Sky 3D
    Bio HD
    Sky Showcase
    Universal HD
    Comedy Central HD
    Sky Sports 3 HD
    Cartoon Network
    CN Too
    Boomerang
    MTV MUSIC

    Also ALL of the Movies HD Channels don't work and neither does ESPN HD...

    Any help appreciated!

    Thanks

    Re: Certain Channels Not Working?

    Thats because they need a subscription card. Put your card in the card slot in the box, find your box key from you original box and enter that in the box key section and then your card should clear the channels.

    Re: Certain Channels Not Working?

    Hi mate,

    Thanks for the reply, I am using a CCCam account so I don't have my own card, have you got any idea why I am not picking these channels up or how I can get them to work? When the guy I bought the box off brought it over to test with my dish I recieved all the channels including ESPN HD however a channel list was put on the box to emulate sky and now I'm not getting it to work.

    Any help aprpeciated!

    You need to check who you get your cccam account with what they are suppling you with?

    Re: Certain Channels Not Working?

    Have you tried one of the other channel lists posted on this site?

    The other one is do a complete blind scan, dump the channel list and go through each individually in parallel to scrolling through the numbers on the TV and identify any that do work and drop them into the correct location using a channel editor.

    I've had that before, but sometimes channels can be duplicated in places and it's just because their sat location has altered. (LyngSat - Lyngemark Satellite)

    You should be using a paid subscription card to receive Sky TV, this forum does not encourage receiving Subbed TV by means of Illegal ways

    Yep, just like it doesn't encourage jailbreaking iPhone's, using "non Sony" CFW on PSP's or indeed showing people how to use Clines in order to "receive subbed TV by means of Illegal ways" lol

    lol, I know, maybe I just misunderstood so just ignore me. I found the comment amusing given what had been posted in other forums is all

    But yes, its all for educational purposes

    Back to the subject matter....

    Re: Certain Channels Not Working?

    Woah...controversial!

    Don't worry guys, I already have a Sky subscription...but I'm interested in CCCam side of it too!

    Anyway, back to the topic!

    Okay, so I've made some progress, it would appear that it's something to do with my LNB, my standard range setting is Universal (9750-10600) however I made a seperate scan under a different frequency and I'm now able to get the movies, mtv, dave etc.

    The problem still persists with ESPNHD and Cartoon Network/Boomerang.

    With ESPNHD the signal quality and strength just fluctuates like crazy and every now and again I can see a pixelated picture and hear a word or two. I've tried the different frequencies but still no luck.

    Would any of you be so kind as to put what frequency (e.g. 12324 29500 V) you are using to recieve ESPN HD and also the same for Cartoon Network/Boomerang? Also what satellite frequency are you using (e.g. Universal 9750-10600)

    Thanks,

    - TheKrow
