Now...seriously talking.Does anyone have any news or official announcement for this premature move? It is very unusual from BBC to move like this. I have a feeling they might be back for some time more before they switch for good.
Is the 10773 transponder stronger in the South than the North? I'm in Denmark and can get a lock on most 2D frequencies - not always a perfect picture - but 10773 just won't lock despite the signal strength and quality seeming to be the same as the others. Or can it be that the LNB has problems with this particular frequency?
Yeap , I've now lost BBC Scotland 1 & 2 (101/102) this morning . Mind you at least they waited until the Celtic Porto game finished before switching to 2D . Although now I think about it I wish they hadn't ....
Can Iceman please give more info on what is available on his 4.2M dish in Cyprus - and some idea of how much physical shading of the dish is needed to loose BBC1 I have a 1.8 prime focus dish with an Invacom 0.3 LNB and a DSB30 at 32.10N and 34.51E (Israel). Up to 2 days ago, on a clear sky day, I could get BBC1 and BBC2 here with only a 3 hour gap in the afternoon (the Invacom improved the previous 6 hour gap with a Genesis !) Now nothing from the BBC - except Parliament.
Originally posted by iceman Hi gcohen I can receive ALL horizontal transponders on 2D 24 hours a day but zero signal on verticals. Sorry i did not understand second part of your question,please clarify.
So i hear M8.....so i hear.. I reckon you will have to upgrade to at least 3.5m in Paphos for 2D.
Iceman Thanks for you reply. What I was getting at in the second part of my question is that I would like to get some sort of handle on how near your system is to threshold on BBC1. For example I would loose BBC1 if I just shadded part of the rim of my 1.8 dish with my hand !
