ive done that liam1611 but i always get no signal 29 error and no defult transponder found and says no signal in the menus, ive got an Octo LNB coming next few days tho! so even tho u both say can do it! im hoping wen i put both cables in it will just spring into life!
but wen it reboots, should the box turn on auto or does the hhd kick in n then it stays in standby and u have to turn it bk on?
also on my old box the Strength is about 50% n quality is about 25% but i know i need to move the dish abit cud this effect it that bad even tho i get channels on my old box?
not yet as my new LNB should be here in next few days so gona do it all at once! so signal still S 50% Q 25% atm!
i have however taken the box apart to look at the PSU, theres not signs of burnin or heat! however a few of the tower cap' things the top of 4 of them are domed but not broken and the fuse is fine, so does this mean its not the PSU?
altho theres a maxtor 300GB HDD in there i thgouth it was ment to be 160GB can they come 300GB standard?
Your better off replacing all the caps in the secondary side of the power supply, as they will all fail sooner or later, and for the extra expense it's worth it. I assume its a Thomson Sky HD receiver that you are using and if so then the faulty caps will be the reason why you are getting no signal as they supply power to the two tuners, no power no signal.
