Can anyone help, i lost my signal for 'ART' sports 4 days ago and have had no joy in getting it back. Iam using Hotbird on 13deg east and had no problems prior to this. My neighbours have also lost the signal. Any news.

There have been several reports on the forum from folks having problems. Either the ART transponder has gone under powered or they have moved from the widebeam onto the super beam.

how will the change from widebeam to superbeam affect signal? Will it increase as the art transponder usually is of low signal strength.

They are wrong - Ive just scanned 12015H 27500 3/4 and 16 channels appeared. They are scrambled as I dont have an ART card, but they are DEFINITELY still there.

Perhaps this is a forewarning of what may happen next year, as they may be getting pressure from the FA.

For the UK & north western Europe the signal strength will indeed increase. BUT - for folks east of Greece, they will lose it as the signal drops off rapidly as you go east.

I wouldnt be at all surprised if ART Sports leaves 13E at some point - theres suddenly a hell of a lot of interest about 13E reception specifically for ART Sports over on the DS forum. Once the more elderly birds at 13E are pensioned off, the restrictive superbeams disappear, and you get massive areas of Europe getting access to all packages....

If you are in Algeria probably not. Cheshire it should be an easy catch. Im getting 65% on a scruffy 80 cm dish here in south Scotland.

looking at the footprints for hotbird we've got no problem with it moving beams as still working here on 80cm dish

if art does leave hotbird theres still digitalb, tps and even nova that show premiership games

If anything the signals should be STRONGER in the UK now! (53dBW rather than 50dBW)
