I suspect that your dish needs a tweak if you are getting no signal.
A strong transponder for me is:

11421.00 MHz Horizontal S/R: 24500

That's very strange. Maybe your positioner has it in the wrong place in the sky?

If you can get eastern sats and Nilesat, then your arc must be reasonable...???

Must be an angular error? Can you step your dish round manually to find it?

There has been a key change on Thor, it's all dead currently although the FTA channels will still give a picture for fine tuning etc..
