Using a HUMAX satellite receiver to watch Italian TV, mainly RAI channels but they often have the message that the channels is scrambled, but all I read is that RAI is free to view?

I understand that the channels are scambelled or withdrawn from satellite because of copyright reasons.

Thanks for the reply, would you happen to know what method they us to scramble the signal? Because when I was in Italy I couldn't get a straight answer. They must be able to watch the channels in Italy so I asked and all they would say is that you need SKY! Which I am sure is not correct.

It is probably what is called 'soft scrambling' where a rights holder (in defiance of European Law) demands that a programme not be broadcast outside the territory, so a SkyItalia subscription card is required to watch, even if no subscription is payable.

Listing for RAI channels can be found RAI TV listings.

RAI 1,2,3 and News are currently all FTA on 10.992GHz (Monday, 9am UK time). 1 and 2 will presumably be encrypted for some later programmes. Other RAI programming is on other frequencies : 11.804, 11.807, 11.768.

I tried retuning my reciever after all 3 of the rai channels have moved.

i get all the other rai channels such rai education and rai sport but not rai 1,2,and3
the frequency that my channels are on is 11918 polarization V symbol rate 27500 FEC2/3
Hotbird

I've read other accounts that the rai channels are on frequency 10992 V symbol rate 27500 FEC 2/ 3.

I HAVE A HUMAX RECIEVER IRCI 5400Z I'VE TRIED CHANGING THE FREQUENCY BUT IT WON'T LET ME DO IT AS NEXT TO MY FREQUENCY READING THERE'S A SMALL BOX WITH 0.9 IN IT.

ANY SUGGESTIONS IN HELPING ME GET BACK MY RAI 1,2, AND 3 CHANNELS.

ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED.

RAI - Francesco: Double-check the parameters
you input manually, including the 2/3 FEC. If still no joy, check other transponders below 11.000 GHz. Online, Lyngsat or KingofSat will give you the parameters. If they are fine, so should 10.992 be! If not, then it is possible (but not very likely) that your LNB doesn?t perform well at the lower end of the band and/or that your dish is slightly off optimal alignment with the 13°E satellite, or too small.

Hi,

would anyone know if there is a way to stop scrammbled programes on RAI1, I'm particulary interested in the Italy football games which is the main reason I had a dish fitted in the first place. Is it possible to get the games through suscription ?

gino: Unless you can get a card sent to an address in Italy, then you won't be able to watch the encrypted programming. See Tivuitalia - HOME
