I am in the Valencia region of Spain and am having trouble with astra 2a North reception. Can´t get it is the problem. Spent most of the day with a 2.4mtr dish trying to get channel 4 and just couldn´t get it. The odd thing is only 200 mtrs away i can get it on a 1.9mtr. Both portuegeuse dishes. Any clues what´s wrong with it, or me:-rofl2

It' could be that you are not exact enough, remember that the bigger the dish, the better the alignment has to be.
Do you get anything else from 28,2?
If not maybe it's a fault with one or more parts of the equipment.

I live well outside the astra2a footprint, in Norway, but I get Channel 4, c4+1 and E4 with a 90cm dish.
Hope this was of some use.

I have got everything, including BBC2 which is a real pig to get here, but nothing from 2A at all.

Have you solved it yet ?

C4 is on 2C isn't it ? just so you adjust your setting in case you're testing with a satmeter.

Are you trying the 2 dishes with the same receiver ? or are they 2 seperate installs ?

Channel 4 is on 2A North Beam at 12168 V. Only "five" and it's relations are on 2C at present.
