You will not get reception from all of the channels on a satellite because:

A) Some are scrambled.
:cool: You are out of range of some of the transmissions.
C) The transponder list in your receiver is out of date, ie contains non active transponders and does not contain all active transponders.

Take a look at Flysat/Lyngsat/King Of Sat/TrackSat/ Satcodx to find out the active transponders. These, in my experience, will have to be added manually.

Cheers.
