Hi, I have been searching for CH4 HD on my Freesat Passion+ for ages and have tried everything that is on this blog but to no avail. Can someone point me in the right direction. I have no Eurobird 1 on my channel list and nothing is in the 28.5E range apart from Astra 28.2 but then the settings are not the same so am totally lost as to how to get this new HD channel. Can anyone help please??
