Well I just about got my LIDL SL65 system permanently installed.
I get the dish motor tomorrow.

Got a good signal from Astra 28E.
But I am still getting very few English channels?

All the BBC channels Ceebees(not that I want that anyway), and usual free channels, are showing
'NO SIGNAL'?

Am a I missing something here ?

Any advice would be appreciated

Starting at the low end, all the Local BBC channels are shown as NO SIGNAL

The first channel I pick up is chanell 80 which is a multicoloured test card.

Then channel 82 is the first available station (Spanish)?

In total, I pick up 952 channels

Sounds like you are on astra 19.2, try moving it round by a few degrees to the East.

No Astra 28.2 is slightly lower in the Sky, for setting up the motor you will need to be looking for Thor at 1 West from your location as Due South reference point.
