Hi Everyone,

First of all I live in Hungary, I tuned mostly to ASTRA-2A BBC radios until they have moved to 2D and after that I aligned my dish to Eurobird.

Recently I noticed that BBCi is clear now at ASTRA 2B, and I'd like to ask whether I could watch it with my non interactive
simple ECHOSTAR DSB-707 FTA reciever.
http://www.tele-satellite.com/TSI/02/09/echostar/

I don't have a clear idea what is this channel may offer, the only information I got is from the BBCi web page.

So my question is:
Does it make sense at all to try to tune to BBCi with this FTA reciever, can I select somehow the desired streams, that usually could be selected with interactive remote controller ?
Maybe I could re-align my dish again and check myself but it's rather cumbersome procedure ( hard to access to it ).

Thank you very much in advance
any comments are warmly appreciated.

Best Regards
Peter Dekany

Don't think that you can access the BBCi package unless you have the digibox Peter, but at least now BBC Radio 2 and 4 are back on 2B, so you can tune in again.
