Several contributors over on the DS forum have been reporting good signals off W6 this week.

Something strange going on with this bird today. Normally I struggle to get a couple of signals to lock this far north but today CFI Peco Pro on 11586 V 6511 is booming in at 80% signal quality on my Passion HD box. I normally struggle to get 50% on this transponder. The other transponder I normally get is 11617 V 27500 and this is coming in at 60% (normally 53%). I can also get a handful of signals that were previously out of reach (mostly data) but can now pick up Alrai on 11530 V 2857 at 54% quality. Anyone else getting better than usual results on this bird today ?

Might be worth folk getting their dishes round to 21.5E and having a look

(W6 is the former W3 - renamed when she moved from 7E a few years ago:) )

Not really looked at that bird before, but getting a good signal on 11586, nothing else locking on the Dreambox, but then again, the dish is out of alignment. :)

Hello,

CFI is such a mysterious channel. Who is it for and is it better than TV5?

Hi divibi

CFI stands for Canal France International, any more information you will have to do a "google" for it;).
