The BBC channels are only available in cyprus with a bloody huge dish - you are WELL outside the transmission area.

Go to www.astra2d.com for the reports section for dish sizes in Cyprus.

i know what sorta dish u need to get it, at least a 2.4m dish... But thats for the frequency 11.778 and 12.205. I've gotta 2.4m dish and i cant get E4 on the default frequencies 11.778, 12.205 but on the freq. 11.565 u can get it witha 2.4m save it, go back to the default freq and get the rest and E4. i wondered if there was one for other channels too... Does anyone know any or where there might be liste on another info site?

If you cant get E4 this shows your dish is too small for Astra 2D - the Add Channels version is on one of the other satellites. The alternate is the Irish version, and no there arent any alternates for the other channels.

The Astra 2D site suggest 3.7m is too small for some areas in Cyprus!:

you are both confused,thfc was asking for frequencies and analoguesat changed subject to a lecture on dishes.thfc said he CAN get e4 on the 11.565 frequency and was asking if there are other tricks like that.THFC,where in Cyprus are you?I am in Limassol and get BBC and ITV on a 3m dish 24/7.There are no extra "secret" frequencies for bbc channels,what ever they transmit on, the digibox automatically receives and has epg numbers(941 942 etc)but there are some that can never be received in Cyprus.For a list of every frequency on all sky satellites go to www.lyngsat.com.
P.s I am not having a go at analoguesat,just helping out.

Its not going to help him if he can get other satellites, seeing as all the BBC channels are on 2D. Maybe I didnt make the point terribly clearly.

Its not that,in Paphos with the right 2.4m dish and right lnb you can receive BBC. I even got it in Limassol for a few hours,and improved it even more when i put on the extensions.THFC was asking if there were any frequencies he could add to get bbc channels,like the 11.565 for e4.If I knew where he was in Cyprus then I could advise him.

now as we speak i get perfect reception of bbc s 10773h in limassol cyprus with a 2.4m famaval and a quad invacom with a pace 2600c1.The 10714h itv tyne tees comes even stronger.probaply the strongest here in cyprus for the 2d astra bird.Probaply as the temperature drops due to upcoming autumn and the retried of humidity the reception on all transponters is better.

I find that hard to believe,you must be the only one in limassol to receive bbc 24 hours a day,and itv stronger?it doesnt happen even in Pissouri.these new tuners must be turbo charged.anyway can you record eastenders for me,cos thats when all the other 2.4's have lost it. ;)

Yes I know, hes hoping to get the BBC off one of the other satellites using "hidden frequencies". As I explained - probably not very well - there arent any. (Apart from the occasional interactive service on 12441)

Agreed mate,you didnt tell him there were no hidden frequencies,you said he needed a bigger dish.I wasnt trying to be a smartarse.So,THFC have we answered your query ? :D

Wouldn't really be viable I'm afraid, we try and limit the subsections, as they tend to dilute the content in the main section. If we made a sub section for Cyprus only, then we would have a quiet main section.

i didn t say i get 24h a day bbc i just said that acouple of hours a day is possible to get 10773h.its strange but now meaning the past week i get good reception 2200-2400 apart from 1700-2000 which was ok before.as for itv tyne tees 10714h 22000 5/6 which is new frequency my friend zorba yes its the strongest transponter even stronger than 10744h (rte irish).i get that from early in the morning until midnight with only minor pixellashion 2000-2200.this with 2.4m prime famaval.invacom quad limassol zakaki.this is just for the record and im not trying to impress you or something.as for itv tt regions 10714h 22000 5/6 you have to download it manually.

Must be those new super spy antennas you got in front of you at Akrotiri.They must be boosting the 2D frequencies.So are you going to put on the extensions then?

He could be right,cos they can pick up all transmissions from around the world, maybe the itv frequencies bounce off towards Zakaki. :rolleyes:
By the way what are those new towers just gone up near your area?Rocket launchers? :D
