Hi, all
I am a brand new member. I'm not a fool, not a baby (52) but I think I need some guidance here please. I am an Englishman living in southern Greece (Peloponnese). I have an 80cm dish with Amstrad 100 box (Sky) and BBC free card. I receive all usual channels but no ITV. I see all the posts regarding all kinds of channels but I don't understand how to receive them. Would someone be so kind as to guide me through the basics of this satellite lark please? I thoght I was receiving Astra 2D but I'm not sure after reading some of the posts here.

HELP!!

Gordon, I've moved this to Sky digital forum, and have replied to your post in the Astra 2D thread, but basically, it is unlikely that you will be able to receive the BBC transmissions when they move to 2D from their present satellite. as Greece is well outside the footprint. Even with a very big dish, I would imagine that reception will not be constant.
