in order for anyone to help, you need to say what model.You have Freeview Satellite and Freeview UHF. Dish Tv make units for both systems and they make receivers and pvr's.Cant help without knowing what you have and what problem you have

Ok, dish TV sell several different units, do you have a model number! Is it a UHF or sattelite based unit! What are you using for an aerial!

You have to set the LNB (low noise block) local oscillator frequency correctly. Either 11300 or 10750 MHz.

This.

Took me a while of internet searching to figure out why my DishTV wouldn't work. You have to find out how to get into the secret menu for your model to get to the settings to change.

Why don't you give an auction number! Ashburton have many specialists and we're just a town. ChCh should have heaps. Tried the yellow pages!

nicenikki - you'll have to go in to settings, if you need a password/pin, default is 0000.From there the advice given by #5 above should work. But If it's a freeview certified box (with freeview printed on it), probably just find the factory reset option, reset it, and when it starts up, a series of easy menus should allow you to set it up no problems.
Hope you didn't pay too much, Norman Ross has dishTV Freeview approved s7070R USB/PVR HDMI out satellite boxes on sale for $98 at the moment.
