    Hi I've just installed wooshbuild on a zgemma h5.2tc . All went well except I don't have ( and don't know how to access ) any cable channels . I'm in Dublin and have fta Sat channels , when I go to menu / set up / service searching / signal finder tuner a is fine but b & c isn't showing any signal. The cable is working fine in the horizon box . Any advice would be great, cheers!

    Assuming the cable is inserted into the RF IN and you've put a line on the box and scanned, you should get channels.

    Have you put your area ID in the tuners and selected your area in ABM and also changed providers V*rgin UK to YES?

    Thanks for reply Ste, the cable is inserted properly into the rd in / loop out . When I do a scan in abm I'm getting a "tuning failed fatal " message .
    I don't have virgin UK on but I do have virgin ie and area is 42753 legacy
    The tuners are B: net I' d 42753 and provider is virgin media Ireland brute force , C: is different it's terrestrial provider - rep of Ireland, all regions(europe DVB-T/T2)
    I've changed from a zgemna 2 star s to this box so cable is new to me ! Cheers

    You are using an underground fibre cable and not the satellite cable?

    You never mentioned if you sorted the set-up part in ABM too?

    Do you have a line on the box also? ... don't think you get any channels at all without a line in Ireland.

    I have Sat cable in A and fibre cable in B/C , in abm I don't have UK selected but I do have virgin IE , I don't have a line yet I thought the box would pick up channels and not show them like the way the Sat tuner would do ?

    Tuner C should be set to the same as tuner B

BUT I have no hd channels with the cable tuners , I've tried different setups with abm but no joy and some channels whether sd or hd won't clear , any advice ! Cheers!

    Can you upload screen shots of the ABM providers page ? rather than take pic with phone, in your browser you should be able to type http://zgemmah52tc and it will bring up web if on the box, down the left side you will see grab a screenshot link which will show an image of whatever is on the screen

    your settings look ok to me, not knowing the irish setup I don't know what channels you are meant to get sorry

    Think that might have been in the past mate, hence "legacy" but 43217 is what was confirmed on WOS by the ABM developers
