A few questions first...

What size dish?
Are you using a motor?
Did it work and you lost it?
Has anything changed?
Where do you live?

All these answers will help you get the best advice...

So how do you know the dish is pointed at 16 East?

Motor, Dual LNB - other?

Dish size should be fine check here

If you are receiving Astra at 19.2 and the dish has a single LNB then you won't receive any other positions.

You would need two LNBs placed beside each other on an arm to receive two positions.

Or am I missing something?

You will find a full list of frequencies and channels here.

Are you using a meter on the dish to find the signal?

You have to move the dish West from Astra - only a few degrees - once you have some signal fine tune by moving the dish up and down slightly and the LNB out and in and you can try turning is slightly both way to find the best signal.

Remember to wait a few seconds for the digital signal to lock before you adjust again. Best to mark the dish LNB position on 19.2 E before you start so that you can get that position back.

If you find what you want use a different pen and make that so you can move between the two.

I am looking at a spectrum envelope on the Sat Meter but do not see any other transmissions between Astra1 and Hotbird. This has totally confused me, additionally The receiver in Signal Test does the same i.e when I selet Hotbird and turn the dish to it the stregnth is there, same ith Astra1

That symbol rate is very hard to find, try 11554 V 28800-7/8
