I have recently moved to the Lidingö area of Stockholm, Sweden and have installed a sat dish in order to get SKY. However, after installation I cannot get any BBC or ITV channels and I suspect I need to replace the LNB on the installed dish.

I have the following hardware:

Sat Dish: TRIAX TD110
Digibox: Panasonic TU-TSB31
LNB: Digiality Universal Twin TF-22

Please can anyone advice whether or not I should be able to get BBC/ITV with this equipment and, if my assumption is correct, which LNB should I get to replace the existing one? After reading threads here I have been considering the MTI AP8-T2 or Interstar 0.3 LNB.

Any help gratefully received.

Humpo.

Here you go, a recent thread discussing BBC and ITV in Stockholm, looks like your 1.1m dish is too small and 1.4 would be more suitable.

Thanks for the response, very helpful. If this is the case then I will look to change the digibox to something like the THOMSON DSI 4101. Are there any other models you would suggest besides the Pace Sky +2 one you mentioned before? Are the Sky viewing cards transferable from one digibox to another ?

You can transfer any card by phoning Sky, if you only have the basic package, most of the channels will work in any box, but any Premium channels need a paired card/digibox.

That's good to know, I currently only have the main package (Sky World I think it's called - £42 pm) and not to any other subscription channels. By premium channels I presume you mean NASN, MUTV etc.?

Premium channels are the film and sports channels.
