Hi Can anyone help us install a greek sat tv in washington, we have a friend who works for sky who has installed the dish and receiver but cant find the channels on his meter...Does anyone in this area know what to do, we would be prepared to pay to have someone come and get it working, my 75 year old father bought it to try and keep up to date with what is happening in his homeland of Cyprus and we have had no joy....Any help advice would be hugely appriaciated.

Regards
Chris

Well it all depends on which beam you are trying to receive.

If it is the F2 beam and the F1 beam the dish size is OK but you must use the frequencies and other parameters as per the F2 and F1 beams here otherwise you will struggle. For the S2 beam you will not be able to get without a 2.5 mtr dish. More than that I am unable to say without more specific channel requirements

As Rolf asked it would help to know what receiver has been installed as a sky receiver would not be much good
