    Loss of local BBC One East E and some HD channels

    Good evening all,
    I hope I have put this in the right section, apologies if not.

    I have a VU+ Duo2. One night all the channels I mainly watch were ok (BBC One East E, BBC One HD and BBC2 HD), then they have now stopped working. I tried rescanning the Autoboutique, but no luck there. The version was quite old, over a year old, so I thought the best thing to do would be to download the latest OpenVIX and apply that, which I have done, but I am still having the same issue. If I select one of the channels I get “Tune Failed”.
    Can anyone through some light on the issue, any tests I can try?

    Thank you in advance.

    There is no "latest" OpenViX build for the Duo. OpenViX stopped building it in July 2019.

    Problem could be a few things. Dish alignment, LNB failure, cable failure, or the Duo itself has gone faulty. Or the tuners are set up wrong.

    Sorry, I tried to edit before anyone commented. It is a VU+ Duo2.

    Both tuners are showing a strong signal.

    The weird thing is with the BBC One channels is that I can get all the others, just not the one for my area. It just stopped working literally over night.

    Have you run AutoBouquetsMaker for your region?

    Exactly which variants can you receive/not receive? "All the others" is not very helpful. I suspect a faulty lnb.

    I have cleared and rerun the AutoBouquetsMaker using FreeSat, Sky and both, but no difference.

    The weird thing is with the BBC One channels is that I can get all the other BBC One channels, just not the one for my area, BBC One East E. It just stopped working literally over night.

    How long should an LNB last? Mine is probably 15 years old? From when Sky originally installed it.

    That is not very helpful as it doesnt confirm exactly what you can receive.

    Here is a full list of BBC ONE channels and their frequencies

    Code:
    en.kingofsat.net/find.php?question=bbc+one
    Please check it (the 28e channels) and confirm what you can actually receive.

    An lnb can fail at any time especially the cheap crap supplied by sky.

    ABM reads tables, it does not scan. Provided you can receive the frequency for the provider, it will add every channel on the data tables even though you may not be able to receive some of them.

    Instead, use manual scan, single satellite, no to network scan. You can enable "clear before scan" if you want. How many channels do you get? You should get over 850 services.

    Looks like a faulty lnb then. You are not receiving the Low Vertical quadrant.

    There is a hardware fault. You will have to rule out the various possibilities one by one.
    LNB fault
    Dish misalignment
    Cable damage
    Tuner/receiver fault

    I think it is most likely an LNB fault. Can you test your box at another location? (must not be a Sky Q wideband LNB)

    I donít have another box to test with, but Iím moving in 3 weeks, so Iím not buying a new LNB and leaving it. Seeing what you have said, where Iím moving to, they have Sky Q. Will their wideband LNB be no good?
    Thank you for your help though.

    You will need to change the LNB as the Wideband (SkyQ) one wonít work.

    Ok, thank you.

    I’ve tried to google the difference between them, but it only says about recording 3 watching the 4th feed, but what is the difference from a standard lnb? Why does it not work? Only asking out of interest. Thank you.
