    Question Viera can find freesat satellite but only as "other satellite"

    Hi, Tl;dr : I tried retuning my freesat TV, it can see the satellite and get good signal, but only if I scan as "other satellite" instead of "freesat". I have a Panasonic Viera TX-P50G20B. I have a satellite dish pointing to freesat, and 3 TVs in the house that use this. I noticed yesterday...

    How does FreeSat compare with Sky

    I have been a Sky customer for many years. Recently I have been reflecting on how much it costs and how much we actually use it. I predominantly watch Netflix, Prime and Disney+ and if it were just me I would ditch Sky and the licence. There are a few things I watch on Sky but not that many...

    Freesat Newbie wants basic advice

    We’ve moved to a part of Gloucestershire where Freeview reception is poor. I don’t have any experience of satellite TV but there’s a dish up on the roof pointing at the southern sky with twin coax feeds terminating in plugs downstairs. Our TV doesn’t have a satellite tuner. Is there anything...

    Arris Freesat box

    Am I right in saying the HDD spins continuously when in ‘Active’ standby? and that without being in that mode you can‘t send remote record requests from the IOS App? It might just be my box (2TB, a few days old) but the noise is just enough to be annoying in the bedroom! another question, is...

    Arris UHD Freesat box

    Hi folks I'm itching to cancel Sky. I have the cables coming into the house from the LNB's. Sky was installed around 13 years ago, so these I guess would be Universal LNB's? Am I right in thinking I would only be able to record two channels while watching a third if I still use said LNB's...

    Question No picture on Freesat Tv

    We had Sky Q for about a week but decided to cancel. I did ask for a hybrid lnb as I liked the idea of returning to Freesat in the future. When I connected the Sky HD box back to the TV as expected, it still worked on the TV in the other room. Today I've removed the Sky q box from the main TV...

    Question Freesat HD mini box

    I've been trying to find a suitable mini Freesat HD box that could be hidden behind the TV (save for a little ir blaster) like a Spiderbox but ideally I'm trying to find a Freesat one with EPG rather than just now and next, and one that works out of the box. Is there perhaps an Enigma 2 (I...
