again, chaning the default transponder (DT) will not help...it does not make channels appear...t just helps the box get the information it needs for booting up after being disconnected from the power...and if your lnb skew is correct you should not really have to change the DT anyway - the box should start up on its own - one good way is if you see the date and time on the box leave your DT alone..if you dont get a date and time then yes change your DT, and you will see a date and time appear.
you can do it your self...best to do it with your tv on one of the problem channels....sky sports news..and the ever so slightly rotate the lnb one direction, clear away from the dish, and check rececption...then turn again...
ideally it needs to be at a 1pm to 7pm angle.
and best to do this first in the am when the signal is strong, then again at around 3pm when the signal is getting weaker.
dont use a basic sat beeper as many of them falsely amplify the signal, and although you may get the channels with the beeper, when you disconnect it you may loose the channels again.
or get a sat installer with the correct measurement equipment should be able to do it in about 10 minutes.
