Having just purchased our first motorhome have no idea how to get TV working. Can play a DVD but not able to get satellite picture. Previous owner said works well. Have a Winegard Dish which was installed by reputable firm. Have Googled basic info and assume TV has built in freeview? Also have a green (when turned on) switch beside plug for TV? What is it likely to be for? Any help would be greatly appreciated
First thing to establish is what brand/model TV it is. Then, does it have built-in freeview or need a set-top box? And if the latter, does it actually have it and is it connected?
Do you know how to tune in the dish? If not, do you have the instructions? Correct azimuth and elevation for your locality is essential (lots of advice from a forum search here).
Is the TV selected to the correct setting for TV pickup (if freeview it should be DVBS - not intuitive)? Maybe you just need to switch it over from DVD?
All these things can be googled or advice sought from the distributor. Maybe just call the previous owner, if that fails, get back to us here again.
