Good morning all, whatever your mood today!

As the Migration has started there will inevitably be issues that don't fall solely within the remit of the Regional Threads so please use this Thread for any howls of protest, chat etc. that there doesn't already seem to be a natural home for.

Reliable information about scheduling of further changes welcome.

But please, no speculation or personal opinion without foundation.

Could we please start with a definitive list of which TPs have now moved? Perhaps someone who has suffered a major loss on both horizontal and vertical TPs or who can compare levels on a spectrum analyzer would be best placed to do this.

In the morning (7:30 GMT) I managed to get intermittent locking on 10964H1, But unwatchable images.
It was pouring (and still is), which makes it the worst reception conditions.

Nevertheless, I will try when I have time and the weather is good (not the ideal season...) to check at the base of my dish to see what I can get from there, net of a long and aged (though very good at its good days) coax line. And some trimming of the skew.

I do not have high hopes, but I must do these checks (I was waiting for this happenings to go for them).

P.S.-Feeling a bit of a drop-out... Where should people from Italy post. No specific thread for our area (though it seems nothing much good will come out from hereabouts...)

Well, we thought about that and realised it was likely to be difficult over there so mentally included you in Central & Eastern Europe.

Not "politically correct", but bearing in mind our non-proliferation strategy and the need to keep Thread Titles concise, it seemed the most expedient thing to do.

They're the same ones mentioned here...All the Ch 5 stuff,including the 5* and other ones
Ch 4 HD etc and some ITV regions

As it mentions in that forum,best use a VPN for viewing in the future but you may have a few months available for satellite BBC/ITV and the main Channel 4 signal.

Channel 5 HD is still within the Sky Pay HD package and can be seen ok as can the ITV HD signals and these will probably stay ok

Now if you want to put up a 6 metre dish in your garden in the Algarve you might be in with a chance.....

the added channels have nothing to do with the migration to 2F, they just happened to be added to the Freesat EPG at the same time, they're actually on other birds than 2F.

If the BBC1 HD's are now on 2F why do I still get them on 10847V ?

The BBC 1 HD channels on 11.023H are tests for Scotland and Wales and cannot be tuned in on a Sky box.
