Nick: It's worth remember that your dish will be aligned with the 23.5 degrees east orbital position. If you want to use other satellites, your dish won't be pointing in the right direction.

I think you will find, that is the Astra 2F UK Spotbeam, not Astra 1N.

Skys monopoly on exclusive righs to the Bundesliga top division football appear to have ended.State channel Das Erste showed a live game last Friday nightSchalke 04 v Hannover.I have watched German match of the day on this channel for several years band have yet to see a 70 year old child having tantrums on the line because some prima donna did not get a penalty.Families stand on terraces in 80,000 capacity stadia and witness respect from players and managers towards officials.

Nick: Briantist, freesat and sky are on the same dish alignment. I just wondered which of the two was picked up in Cyprus.
I realise I need to repoint the dish for other sats, and thank jb for pointing me in the right direction.
Incidentally, if I put up other dishes, I have found that whilst my Pace box for sky will let me manually tune to various channels not on sky, it will only remember them for a week or so and then I have to start over again.

I replaced dish rescued from a skip with another in perfect condition for reception of Astra 19.2 digital satellite signals.There was a huge difference in quality,higher signal strength and more regional channels.This dish was got from a neighbour who was about to dump it.No dents in this dish.I also noticed that perfect alignment of dish for Astra 28.2 is achieved by tuning in Gospel Channel.I dont have a signal metre so this is the best way.

At my holiday home 50km south of Bordeaux France I have recently noticed a 'dropping out' of BBC on Channel 101 at irregular intervals and intermittent loss of sound on all other channels when this occurs. It seems only to have happened since Sept 2012, but mo so April 2013. I use a 75cm dish; Bush SD Freesat boxc and get a signal strength of between 60% and 90%.Has something changed to the satellites coverage?
M wife thinks I am sabotaging her viewing so if you can't help do you know a decent divorce lawyer!!??
