Which size dish are you getting these on, your 1.8m or 1.2m? Tried many times with my 1.2m but never had a sniff of them!

I think some of the channels have been moved, if you have a HD receiver try:
12188 H 27500 DVB-S2 QPSK 5/6
or on a SD receiver try 12341 H 27500

hi - SatSearcher -
Only with the 1.8 -
its only the third time in three years that i,v locked H transponders -- each time its been around this time of year - on clear cool nights - between 10 -30 pm and 1 00 am - normally the signals are too low to lock

cheers :)
