:( :( Hi guys! (haven't been on here for ages!)

Got a bit of a problem :(

Finally subscribed to Sky Digital (bit the bullet, but ah well).. and moved house to a flat with a south facing garden.

Have been trying to set up my dish and box for hours.. with a satellite meter, analogue box and digibox, and just can't find 28.2e :(

Have successfully managed to locate 13e using the satellite meter, however i cant find 19.2e or 28.2e no matter how hard I try.

The dish and box worked perfectly before in my last house, where I had them on all sorts of satellites, including 28.2e.

I cant see anything which could be obstructing the line of sight, other than some trees sort of in the distance that i dont think matter.

I cant think of anything, and am in despair as I just agreed to Sky for 12 months contract, (viewing card/sub only) as I had all the equipment.

It's a rented house, therefore can't have any dish on the building. I dont really want to call out Sky for £69 + £40 just so they can put it on a pole in the garden.. (although with the amount of luck i've had, I wonder if they'll be able to find it!)

Am I missing something blindly obvious here guys? Any help needed.. please :( :)
