      SKY + HD - No signal being recvd

      Hi
      First post on here so here goes........... Ok first off Im in Spain.

      I currently have a normal Thompson digibox set to the correct freq (12.051 for here)
      This works fine - no problems..

      I have a sky+hd box which my dad brought over (i dont want the + functionality so dont flame me about the phone line thing)
      All the settings are the same in the installer set up screens, transponder, freq...everything...

      and yet the box picks up no signal at all.

      If i switch it to the normal didgibox (with the same settings)...works instantly.

      Any ideas?

      Many thanks
      Rich Clark

      Some makes of boxes are more sensitive than others. Maybe you need a bigger dish with this box ?

      Thomsons are good in fringe areas, not so some other makes. Bigger dish a possibility. Anybody else locally using exactly the same model as your HD box?
      Panasonic TX-P50G10B, Onkyo HTS 3305, Sky+HD Thomson 4E3007 (with upgraded PSU & WD5000AVDS HDD),
