Otara Optus D1 Freeview NZ

This customer from Otara wants to connect his satellite receiver to watch Freeview satellite channels, but there’s no signal input.

It was because that some bolts and nuts were not correctly fastened, after a few years the position of the dish was moved by wind.

If you have sky tv dish there, and you do not want to pay sky for the subscription based channels, you still can use it for Freeview satellite channels, but you have to buy a different receiver box than SkyTV box. Remember it’s a satellite box, not freeview terrestrial box, they are different standard boxes, one is DVB-S, the UHF aerial type of box is DVB-T, T for Terrestrial.
