Providing its programmed into the meter you should be able to find that Satellite without too many issues. Its just a case of point and wait for the beep and then fine tune it using the display.

Ok thanks. Do you know if all the channels are biss encoded or is the one free i.e for a test? Thanks marc

All encrypted.

No need for test channels - they arent for public consumption.

At the moment here in spain everybody is buying biss encoded boxes and picking up the signal. Thats why i was asking. Can they tell if people are picking up their satellite, they only have to look on the expat forums. Thanks

Arqiva the multiplex operator are well aware on what is going on re 27.5W.

Dont expect the channels to stay available long term.

So as i respect your opinion, is it worth people spending money on a biss encoded box, set up and box fees here are 350 euros. How long would you estimate it would last before they do something? Thanks.

Blimey someone is making serious money from this - and no doubt they charge you again when the keys change - which has been happening more frequently recently.

Now 27.5W reception has gone mainstream in southern Europe its only a matter of time before Arqiva either change the encryption to summat more secure or change the keys every few days.

Its up to you if you want to throw money at whast could last just a few days or weeks, but if you are prepared to read around it can be done a LOT cheaper than what these rip-off merchants are charging.

Yup with an el-cheapo box and the right reading materials you should be able to receive those channels, the major headache for the average viewer is aligning the dish, if you can master that on your own you can buy a HD box that can take BISS keys and be up and running for less than £80 (maximum) and a few hours trial and error

TBH I personally think they're either gonna start to use Power-Vu or locate to another bird that's not an easy catch outside the target area (it all depends on if it's cheaper to rent space elsewhere and re-align the receiving dishes/pay a get out fee for the bird they're contracted to now or if its cheaper to buy a Power-Vu licence), it's a safer option than changing the keys every few days with the potential to disrupt millions of viewers if something goes wrong when they keep rolling the keys
