A good place to start would be this site:

http://www.astra2d.com/

Under the 'Astra 2D Reports' section, you'll find Sweden listed. You won't get anything from 2d with your current setup, the dish is far too small. As far as I recall, there are problems in the Gothenburg area, if these extend down to Halmstad or not I don't know. Your box is good, possibly the best available at present without going over to Sky+. You should also consider getting a good LNB as this is very important in the context of Astra 2d. There's info about good LNBs on the site too.

Do you mean Pace 2600?

I have no signal from Astra2D in Okome "not far from Ullared" and only 5 Swedish miles from Halmstad. I use 1,8m offset parabol , Inverto LNB, Conversion Gain 75db (max.) 65db (min.), Topfield TF3000CoCl . I think I need a 2,4m parabol or more sensitive receiver. What do you think?

Regards

PM if you want a good dealer that sells Sky subs without the insane administration fees that the others do each year.

Reception in Stockholm is pretty good on a Channel Master 1,2 m dish and panasonic 30. 7-8dB C/N most of the day and night! MTI Blue Line LNB makes a difference of at least 1 dB.

yes but they are expensive and takes administration fees every year which i would not recommend, i have a dealer in Ireland that got excellent service and no fees, just the sub, only catch is that you need to buy the Sky receiver from them and they take normal price as in the shop.

I can PM if you want the URL to the dealer.

Hej latmask, my box is a pace 2500b is this bad? I`m having problems getting hold of a
big dish.I´ve been told to try with a 150cm or 180cm and a better lnb..Have you got any ideas where i can get this stuff in Sweden.
The channels i get on my box 2date are ch4 ch5, and all the other NAFF free stuff,
all with very good signal quality.
I would try different lnb and play about with scew instead of another dish...


Best regards
Miguel E.

It's difficult to say which receiver is best for fringe reception. Pace 2600 is a very sensitive reciever and is the favourite for operation abroad ( Europe ). TECHNOMATE 1500 CI + has a Super Sensitive tuner for very weak signals.

I have heard of a place where they have big parabols ( old parabols) but first I have to ask them if they are willing to sell them. The parabols are from 2-5 meter in diameter. I think both of us need a 2,4 meter parabol. Yes the free stuff is not so fanny. I assume you have a wievingcard an can also receive all the free cannels from astra2A,astra2B plus Eurobird 1.
I'm very interested if you succeed in receiving astra2d!
Would it be okey to send email to your ordinary email-address? In that case I need your email-address of course.
