Caroline: If the problem remains the same since your posting? you should try deleting Ch5 from your "other channels" list followed by reinstalling it using the parameters listed below.

Frequency: 10.964
Polarity:- H
Symbol Rate: 22.0
FEC :- 5/6

I tried this out on three different types of Sky boxes this morning with no problems whatsoever being experienced, the boxes in question being: (1) standard Sky box, (2): Sky+ (white) box, (3) Sky+HD, although the latter does not allow access to "viewing" other channels without a standard viewing card in the slot, albeit that it does allow you to store them minus the card.

The above settings work for CH5 but you might have to scroll down through your other channel listings to find its new location

If you are using a Sky box, then it is on channel number 5. Check the Sky programme guide to ensure you are set up correctly.

William Kelly:

If you are getting any chennels on your Sky box then you should be getting them all. The dish is aimed at the Astra satellites and receives all the signals en masse. So check the box is working correctly.
