Hi,
It depends on which satellite your dish is pointed at for what channels you can get.

Hotbird13E has the Art sport package on it for which you need a card.
Polsat also has sports channels, but possibly not in English plus decoding equipment required.

Which Satellite is your dish pointed at?

Turksat is at 42 degrees east.

Unless you point your dish at a different satellite you will not be able to 'search' other satellites.

To align your dish with hotbird 13E you would need to rotate the dish to the left (looking at front of dish) by 34 degrees, and tip it down by 3.5 degrees.
Also the LNB will need rotating anticlockwise by 19 degrees.

Useful info here _http://www.satsig.net/maps/lat-long-finder.htm

and here _http://www.lyngsat.com

To make life easier a cheap satellite meter (cost approx £10 UK) so that adjustment can be made.

Your dish should be large enough for Hotbird.

Probably a good idea to user a marker pen to mark your dish's current settings so you could go back to them if you have a problem.
