I have been trying to get the BBC interactive channel on Astra 2A,it says in lyngsat its 12441,on scanning with FTA box only BBC radio2/4 comes up.
When trying on my Digibox add channels it shows Dstream 1-6.
I understand the England game tonight is being shown according to LJ,s football schedule.

You can't get in without pressing the red button on BBC1, once in, you will get good reception regardless of how bad 2D reception becomes. You just need a good signal at 8.30pm CET tonight.

Decent fta boxes show the interactive streams up as "normal" channels. You just choose which stream you want from the half dozen there.

My Digibox is hooked up on a 1meter dish,my FTA box is hooked up to a 1.8 PF dish,it happily picks up lots of bbc regions and lots of numbered channels.
I assume that the Digibox will not work on interactive by pressing the Red button,as it does not receive 2D(1 meter dish).
The Digibox will not work with the PF dish for some reason.

Why can't you get in if they're free to air channels???
I've always been able to see them with my Strong 4350 but can't with my Pace 2600. Previously these channels were blocked out on digiboxes, now they show up but can't be viewed!

Because with a digibox you need to be on a proper BBC channel to get into the red button service. You cant go straight in like you can on a decent receiver.

Of course if the BBC were really nasty tonight they would use the Astra 2D interactive streams :D
