Hi, is it possible to receive a decent signal on Hotbird and Astra 1 and 2? Right now my building has one dish (about 80cm) with two LNB's receiving Hotbird (13e) and Astra 1 (19e). Is it possible to add another LNB to get Astra 2 at 28e? I'd like to get some of the BBC feeds and maybe one day a S*y subscription. Thanks.

You will find an 80cm far too small for an offset LNB for Astra 2D, where the BBC and ITV channels are, apparently a 1.8m dish is required, you may of course pick up some of the other ~Sky channels which are not on 2D.http://www.astra2d.com/austria.htm
