      sky+ keeps searching for listings

      ive just bought a sky+ box brand new and a new dish.. ive wired it up and it comes on say the time & date.. when i go to signal test it says signal strength and quality very good (more than 80%) even got a lock.. ive not connected it to input 2 as i dont want to record chanels.. but when i goto "tv guide" and click channels it will just stay with the message "searching for listings" for hours??

      ive had 2 boxes and still does the same.

      ive got a viewing card for one of the boxes makes no difference.

      im just trying to watch freeview channels with it.

      any ideas??

      Disable Sky Anytime, and then Save Settings, then reset the Default Transponder in the Installer Setup ( press Services, 4, 0, 1, Select ). Default Transponder in there somewhere. A Sky+ box needs two inputs to work properly.

      Do you receive any channels?

      I take it you installed the dish yourself.
      Are you sure you are pointed at the right satellite?
      With a simple finder it is very easy to lock onto the wrong one.
