Hi

I want to add 25.5E to my receiver but it asks me for 'LNB FREQUENCY'. What should I set it to and where do I get this figure from for when I add other satellites?

Thanks

Normally

These are standard universal LNB settings.

Hi,
after reading several threads I have worked out how to manualy add Eurosat2 to my fortec star 4200. i have set the
name, frequency, polarity, and SR but no idea
how to set the FEC (nor have I yet found what this is)
Nor what the SID is or how to set that on the 4200
And finaly I am trying to access the clear (unencrypted) Boomerang channel, which is a real favourite of my daughter.
To be honest I'd be quite happy to pay for this channel, so final question, is there a satelite reciever that allows you to pay for and then access encrypted channels other than through Sky?

From your profile it appears that you only have a Sky minidish pointing at Astra 28.2, is that the case?

Not from Eurobird 2 you're not!

Similar Transponder frequencies are used even on adjacent Satellites, so you are just getting a reading from a 28E TP that happens also to appear in the Eurobird 2 list.

You've no chance at all of Eurobird 2 with that dish.

No chance of EB2 in the Midlands without a silly sized dish! the signal you are getting is off 28E.

Many satellite receivers allow for foreign subscriptions, but the cards tend to be more expensive than Sky UK :D
