Presuming that you are actually pointing at Astra 28.2, you may need to add the transponders for those channels see _http://www.lyngsat.com/astra2d.html

Can you give us a list of 3 or 4 of the other channels you are getting?

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Alternatively describe to us the salient features of the scantilly clad females you are seeing and someone may be able to determine which sat you are pointing at from those descriptions in the absence of any other information from you ;)

Hi Guys

I know very little about Satellite systems, I have an existing Sky Digital receiver/dish etc but I was wondering if i bought a Silvercrest sl 65 in LIDL
could i possibly pick up some freeview or unencrypted channels showing Italian Football or am I living in dreamland.!!!
I live in the northern part of Ireland, near the border.
Many thanx for your patience with a novice!

I'm not a footie fan so i'm not 100% sure, but as far as I know most of the football is only available on subscriptions.

Also, you would need a motor or additional LNB's to pick up satellites other than 28E, Presuming you want to keep the FTA stuff from there.

Many thanks for dat, I suspected it was to good to be true for £89.
My friend in Stockport can view all the Serie A games as well as footie from other Countries. However he has his system set up on Digitalb with a 100cm dish.
He got his through some Company in Widnes. He added motor-plus as well.
Also has receiver and access card.
I dont know anyone around here who could set this up for me, he says main thing is to keep away from Sky Installers and find someone with experience lol
All I can hope for is Setanta or C4 to get Serie A back!

Thanks again.

There are other options, have a look through the forums, there are other receivers available that may do what you want,;)

Hi all,
General question?
Considering purchasing one of these Silver Crest Home Satellite Systems, from Lidl, 79.99 Euro.
Question? Will the unit work in Bulgaria, Bourgas-Black sea cost area.
If it will, what channels can I expect?
Or should I be looking for something totally different?

welcome to the forum John M

To quickly answer your question it depends what satellite you point your dish at, the lidl kit is non motorised so you will be limited to reception from one satellite unless you fit further lnb's and a diseqc switch
