Hi all, I joined this site because I bought a silvercrest sl65 satellite receiver without remote at a car boot sale for £1, yeah £1....a bargain! I thought it was a terrestial freeview receiver & intended it for my Mum's caravan.
I didnt even know that satellite freeview receivers existed & since I live in a strange area in the middle of a city centre which cannot receive terrestial channels (analogue or digital) without a ridiculous 8 ft aerial on top of the building this has turned out to be potentially my ideal solution. A friend has donated a dish & lnb and the box works! However the 'free to air' channels such as E4, Film4 etc etc are scrambled so I'm thinking I may possibly have a box with out of date firmware so I've joined this site. Unfortunately it seems I cannot download any help files without making at least 20 posts & waiting 10 days, so I thought I'd make a start. Unless of course someone will be kind enough to email me the relevant files.
Also does anyone know where I can find a remote that will work with this box, I've looked on ebay but no luck. Perhaps someone with a dead box would like to sell theirs?
Oh well here goes!
