Sounds like your motor is not returning to the correct place. Put your reciever on the channel and move the dish around where you think 28E should be and see what happens.

My wrong interpretation of your post. Appologies.
So what happens on a manual scan of the 2D transponders ?

Try adding the frequencies manually they are listed here just add one and try it.

The BBC channels are OK I have checked.

Hello R

Just a thought but it could be that the channels you have loaded are all in Horizontal

Have you tried loading any of the Vertical ones e.g.

BBC One Cambridge 6903 2338 2339 E
BBC One Channel Islands 6904 2343 2344 E

If these work, could be a prob with LNB.

Hope not!

Regards

W. Hole

Continuing the faulty LNB theme, most 2D things are low band, so it could also be a problem with the LNB not switching into low band (or your receiver not dropping the 22khz tone for low band channels).

Can you get any other low band channels not on 2D?
