I recently bought a smart centurio ci receiver and tried moving my 45cm Raven minidish to 19 East so I could pick up Astra 1. I checked the various signal strengths having moved the dish and got a reading of about 80 for Astra 1 and about 65 for Hotbird. Presuming I'd picked up the Astra 1 satellite I searched through the channel list. All the FTA Hotbird Channels were available but only 1 Astra 1 channel. What's all that about?

(It's a shame cos the previous owner - bought it on Ebay - seems to have entered some keys on the Irdeto Freecam. The owner was German so I'm guessing they were for Astra 1).
