Hi folks,

until a few weeks ago i used to receive

Eutelsat W2 (16.0E) - 11449.00 H - DVB-S - 27500 7/8 - NID: 1 - TID: 1 - Txp: C12 - Beam: Europe - AlbaniaSat

but i don't anymore. I've checked and looks like

Hotbird 7A (13.0E) - 11449.00 H - DVB-S - 27500 2/3 - NID: 272 - TID: 905 - Txp: 13 - Beam: Europe - Mediaset has taken over on 22/04/2006!!! (i think this transponder was Vertical only before this date)

with my porty dish it seems like i can't get hold of the 16E tranponder anymore, as the hotbird one is a lot stronger. Is it usual stuff, for a satellite to start using the same transponder as a neighbour sat, and take it over?

Do you have any suggestions?

cheers

Its common - Several of the low bit rate 16E digital channels are affected by analogue transmission off 19E on similar frequencies.

All DBS satellites use frequencies between 1070 & 12750MHz, so theres only so many channels available.

You may need a bigger dish - bigger dishes have narrower acceptance angles

yes, i thought that a bigger dish would do it as my porty apparently takes a lot of signal from neighbour dishes.

I'm trying to see if i can get that transponde by tweaking, as they have different FECs

edit: i couldn't, what a bummer! :( hotbird bastards :(
