No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Sounds like it's probably pointing at Astra1 at 19.2e, assuming it's one of the older round dishes that predate Minidishes...:)

Try adding channels (services 4 4) using these parameters
10832 H
22000 5/6

and see if you get a whole host of Czech channels. If you do you are pointing at 19E :D

You can watch them if you get them using services 6

Go into Services, System Setup, Add Channels

Put in 11568 Vertical 22000 5/6 and it should find:

Canal Algérie
TV 5 Monde
Al Masriyah
RAI Uno
RTP Internacional
Tunis 7
ARTE Français
Al Jazeera Channel
TVE Internacional Europe
2M Maroc

Then if you want to move the dish to Astra 28.2 Sky Digital, it is a relatively small move down a bit and east by 9 degrees. :)

You need to type faster rolf :-lmao

It may well be that the lnb is a low band only type. If so it wont go above 11700khz and will need swapping out for a universal type.

You have to phone Sky, although it is normally the last four digits of the original card, unless you changed it.

you will if you tune in channels that has the symbol rates the digibox will only take as they are quite restricted

did you search 11568 Vertical 22000 5/6 and what did you pickup ?
