Wow. You receive BBC4HD from Madrid with just a 94cm, which LNB are you using?

No LNB can make up for lack of dish size. We can get almost everything here, 450 km south east of Madrid on a 1 metre dish. Go 100 km further south and a 1.4 metre dish is minimum. ITV HD requires a bit more dish due to the reduced error correction.

I have 50% more dish than you and I can't get everything, you must be in a lucky area as you're definitely further away from the UK.

ITV HD is impossible at my location nowadays, since FEC=3/4.

Maybe I should start looking for hardware issues. BBC 2 and four HD are the only channels of interest to me at 28 degr. btw.:)

Go another 10 km, 1.8 m, 30 km more 2.4 , any further due south IPTV!

I'm at a point with signal peak in San Sebastian de los Reyes (Madrid) in San Fernando de Henares, or 30 kilometers further south, with the same antenna, nothing.
Currently with Inverto Black Ultra 0'2dB.
No problems with an old LNB LIDL supermarket 6€uros, with the new more stability in the evenings since removed the Astra 2D.
Overall for Madrid, 150cm minimum recommended not to have probem with bad weather.

Estoy en un punto con pico de señal en San Sebastian de los Reyes (Madrid), en San Fernando de Henares, ni 30 Kilometros mas al sur, con la misma antena, nada.
Actualmente con Inverto Black Ultra 0'2dB.
Sin problemas con un viejo LNB del supermercado LIDL de 6€uros, con el nuevo mas estabilidad por las tardes desde que quitaron el Astra 2D.
En general por Madrid, minimo recomendado 150cm para no tener probemas con el mal tiempo.
PS:Some pictures of 2011/Unas fotos del 2011.

Hope you can solve the problem! Maybe I should have written there is no change at all in signal level during the last months at my place. The only TP which comes in very low is 12 304H and if FEC changes to 5/6 I will probably loose this TP but it doesn't matter to me.
