It would help a lot if you provided a little more information, including your general location and the dish you are using, especially the size.

sorry,

im in belfast...using a 1 meter dish and a dragon cam.....

i thought it was weird that im getting most channels on that 11092 tp apart from the 5 premium channels....

is it possible that they have a weaker signal than the other channels on this tp...and that im just not picking them up...as this is the only explanation i can come up with (although it doesnt seem logically right that they would be any weaker than say...digi+)

the other settings are the standard 32000 5/6 for digitalb..


thanks...

I have just checked 16E, and my old settings had them at 11092 V 32000 but when I deleted and re-scanned they do seem to have moved and give a stronger signal on 11449 H 27500.
You should have no problem picking them up.

Check liveonsat on Friday, as DigitAlb football fixtures are only released 24-48 hours before hand.
But with a Dragon Cam you can also watch the game on Astra 1, 19.2E, on Premiere, with English commentary.

What type off receiver are you using? Try doing a manual scan for the premium channels. I find that the sports channels are slighty weaker but you will be ok on a one meter dish.

im using a humax CI 8100 for future reference....did a manual scan on the 11449 tp and all is working..obviously this frequency wasnt being picked up by the automatic scan.....still not great signal strength though

cheers lads

p.s how long does the freeview of premium 1 last...as i need to know if the card has actually activated, the channel is going off every so often and im worried that premium 1 needs to be on continuously for a certain period of time for the activation signal to be picked up....

i'm also in belfast and just bought a digitalb card, i only have a 80cm dish and a humaz 5400 reciver. I'm getting my dish re aligned on friday as i was watching art last year for the football.

any tips for me ?

My knowledge is pretty limited.

My card was activated today, as i was speaking to the guy i bought the card off.

mate, i think you'll struggle to pick it up with an 80cm dish....i had an 80cm for my art and didnt even bother trying it because all the reports say a 1 metre is needed....because even with 1 metre the signal for premium 1 isnt great!

the signal on the 11092 frequency will be impossible to get...stick to the 11449 frequency cos that seems to be the strongest TP on W2...

where abouts in belfast are you....i also know that another boy in the west who couldnt get his normal hotbird dish working...and had to go 1 metre....

id go out and buy a 1 metre dish from maplin....theyre not too dear...because youll no doubt be wasting the money your going to spend on a re-alignment (assuming your paying someone to do it)

i'm in the south of the city, i used a 80cm dish last year for ART and picked it up perfectly, so heres hoping ill get digitalb no problem, already arranged for a guy to come out and re-align the dish so i'll give it a go and see how i get on, i'll let you know what the out come is.

Im in the east of the city and can confirm that it is hit or miss with an 80cm dish. During rain you will have no signal on the premiums, so that will be from now until about May! Better with a 1 meter dish, good lnb and decent cable.

I have had to upgrade all the bars that I have put Systems into to 1 meter dishes because I was getting tortured when the signal dropped out.

well, im currently living in the city centre...and it works fine (about 60% quality on the signal) with a 1 metre....

the hotbird signal is a lot closer and therefore easier to pick up...in fact i was picking it up on a 60cm sky dish.....


good luck anyway.....glad to find out that the united/everton match is on digitalb tommorow..

up the toffees.

you cant, they dont release their listings until the day before...which is a bit daft...and not very good marketing!

how'd you go with that 80cm dish?

getting 60% at the min, getting the installer back tomorrow to see if he can get a better signal, couldn't even test it as the receivers software was out of date so it wouldn't read the conax cam. (humax 5400)

hopefully getting it sorted tonight.

what a hassel
