Hi Guys,

I have a friend who is going to live in Porto and has bought a Humax Foxsat - HD-G.

She would like to receive all the freesat channels we receive in the UK, am i right in saying that all she needs is a120cm dish and needs to point it to Eutelsat 28A& Astra 1N/2A/2B at 28.2 deg East?

Thanks for your help.

Ricky

The satellite that carries BBC, ITV, C4 & C5 is changing in a week, so you need to wait and see, but definitely well outside the official footprint.

As Heuvos says, wait a few weeks and see what happens. We wont have a decent idea of whats likely to be possible for another month or so.

Really?. I lost mine but I thought it was the very strong winds we have been having.

Thank you. Lost all but movies4men on 11680. Must have been the very strong winds. Got on the roof to re-tune but found battery was dead. Won´t recharge. I have meant to recharge, but all has been going so well. Anyway just ordered FS1 from one of our sponsors. Almost went for Sathero 500 but thought FS1 is better for the price.

All back to normal. Haven´t lost anything, must have been the wind; which is back and causing pixilation.

The east coast of spain is getting consistently good reception even on the newly moved channels, compared to the Costa del Sol which has lost all 2F channels!
