2x Pace 2600 C1 (in a box just in case) , 3 x Humax HD Foxstat (2 of which in store as spares) . 3x Manhatten Plaza - Pasat 2.4 PF dish mounted on flat roof with Invacom C120 quad LNB .
My Location
Massanassa, Valencia, Spain
In Javea using a 1.2PF dish I have lost the HD channels but SD coming in fine. Not sure when this happened as I am not there all the time but certainly was the case 5 weeks ago when I was last there.. Using Humax Freesat box which normally pulls in anything. In Valencia all remains OK on HD and SD but I do have a much larger dish there even when using a cheapo Manhattan sat box.

Just been down to our villa in Javea to adjust the dish but realised after reading this thread that if I reset the tuner to factory default and let it retune it may then get the correct signal info for the HD channels - and yes it worked fine - All HD channels now coming in nice and strong from the Tagra 1.2m PF dish and old Humax Foxsat box. My elderly neighbour was really miffed when he leaned what I had done as he was given a largish bill from some iffy installer for "adjusting" his system to get the HD channels - and he has a really nice 2.4m dish and a much better LNB then me! Just shows there are some real sharks out here! So beware - read the forum first!!!!

I wonder if that is the same shark that i have heard about, who claimed a clients Freesat HD receiver was faulty as it was not getting the BBC HD channels, and so sold the person a new Freesat HD box...when all that was needed was a new Freesat scan...

Just shows how useful this forum is - Should have thought about the retune myself as I have had a similar issue in the past. Will let my neighbour know he was not the only one scammed!
