Hi Guys, not sure if this is the correct forum to ask this but I am sure someone will let me know if it's not.
I am from Australia and currently holidaying in Malakwa, BC Canada for 2 months and the house is equipped with a Shaw direct dish, see attached LNB photo but no set top box.
Is it possible to access FTA TV in BC, if so what equipment i.e. set top box do I need to access FTA TV ?

Welcome to SatelliteGuys Jexhed.

If I remember correctly, you need to set your LO to 10750 and turn 22kHz on to get that dish/LNBF to work with a FTA receiver.

The Amiko receivers are good for someone starting out in FTA. Current model is the Amiko MIni HD 265. You can get one here. :)

That lnb is a xku triple extended. Uses 2nd lo on 107w. F1r lo is 10073. G1 also on 107w and f2 at 111w are standard 10750 lo. If i remember correctly, haven't played with DCII fp/zk on ku side lately.

If the dish is no longer in active use, and/or the homeowner doesn't mind you repointing the dish, search the forum for some of the discussions about four degree apart sats. For temporary use a FTA receiver and that dish should get you 97/101 with minimal fiddling.

Edit -

DOH! - Been out of regular use of FTA for a while, forgot there is nothing to see at 101 any more.
