Whats on these 'BBCi' chanels and can I add them to my list of manual chanels (add other chanels)? There on 12441 V, Transponder 38, SR 27500, FEC 2/3, (SID 6880, VIPID 2305, APID 2306E).

How do I set the SID's etc?

We only get astra south footprints down here in the bowels of Europe. :-(

hello makum101,
i¨m also from tenerife in the torviscas bajo area.
last time i watched these channels was for the
euro 2004 footie.
on my receiver technomate 5500 dapci,i go
into advanced search,enter the frequency,sr,
and fec,then,search type--all. do your search
and about 8 channels come up as data stream.
no need to put the pids in.
hope this helps.

Cheers Jacko. Were virtually neighbours!

I have a sky+ version 1. Ill try to bring them in.

Interistingly I noticed that C4 broadcast a feed called big brother tv on south during its run. I'm guessing that this will be available here too in the same fashion? (wud keep Mrs Makum happy)

Many Thanks

Hmmmm, Just tried and got "No signal found" message.

Do they turn the transponder off when they are not utilising the interactive feeds?

i think they are transmitting all the time,
tried a couple of hours ago,they had a
test card on.
tried to get these channels on my mates
digi box a couple of months ago on the
same frequency, brought in only 2 radio
channels.
hope this helps.

I believe that the Digibox software prevents you from putting these interactive frequencies in separately - you have to use a non-$ly receiver.
