From 1- June-07, all FTA channels from Dish TV like Sun, DD etc have been lost because DD DTH has moved the satellite from NSS to Insat4B. However, in a week time the channels were back in DishTV in India. Some of them adjusted the Dish to receive INSAT4B and some of them got the channels back without doing anything. The direction of these two satellites are just 1.5* variance. In UAE, the channels are not back for me. I am getting the FTA channels.

Do any one if they have got back after changing the direction? Because, I was told that if we change the direction to INSAT4B, then the other channels of NSS6 will be lost? Is it correct? I want some one to share their experience. Please note this is in UAE and not in India.

No. If it has stopped signals, the other pay channels will not come also. The problem is only with the Free To Air Channels due to change of its satellite. Can any one provide the answer to my orginal question?

To get FTA , you need to put one more similar dish with normal LNB and it can be fed to diseq; That is if you have hotbird / insat 3a etc.. you need not buy separate reciever for it. Technicain can get it done for AED 150 Max. You can n-joy all earlier channels.

Is it possible that we can put zenega software in other good receiver and can get both satellite signal in single dish. I read in this forum that zenega giving less signal than other good receiver on same dish.

If it is possible than may be we will get all channels on dish tv.

Well if you are think about Zenga low signals than you was wrong on it.

I have Zenga and I never got less than 80% signals even DD's TP too.

You need 130cm dish size minimum for Insat4B.

For DishTV, I understood from DishTV dealer in Chennai that if we change the Dish to point in between NSS6 and INSAT4B, we will get the FTA channels as well as the Pay channels. For this, he suggested to have 100 CM and above dish and use .3db LNB especially in Gulf. He said this works fine in Saudi and some one confirmed him also about this.

Can any one in this Middle East tried like this and whether it is working. Please confirm and give the details.
