We have an old satelite dish and receiver to get German/Austrian TV analogue programmes which in now redundant ?

What equipment do I need to get the digital TV broadcasts from Germany/Austria. We are about to buy a new Panasonic TV L32ET5 which has freeview. Are there any foreign channels on freeview ?

Many thanks for your help.

This is for UNJUST as I too couldn't get Channel 5 group on my Ross Free to Air receiver and the instructions are useless. This is what I did - use the menu to bring up Installation, down and pick Transponder then down and pick Frequency - use yellow button to edit - enter 10964 and then (with some trepidation as it took me an entire weekend to get it going in first place) red button to scan. Channels have moved around but all seem to be there - including 5! Hurrah!

Step I missed in last post - when in Installation -Transponder; put Transponder on 5 (of 94) before changing Frequency. No idea if this is important or not, but I was trying to tune for a specific channel rather than total rescan.

Is there currently a problem with Freesat radio? I am receiving the signals via a Black Gold tuner in the PC and Media Centre under Windows 7. I have recently done a partial retune and all the "missing" radio channels are tuned to 11954, which Lyngsat and KingofSat report as an unused channel.
