Hi,

I recently came to the Algarve - August. I subscribe to the FULL Sky package.

I have a 1.3m Dish and Pace 2600 receiver.

I have been unable to view Movie Channels 309 - 310 - 311.

In the last week or so I have also lost BBC Channel 5. I have been told by my installer that BBC 5 and "Others" have been moved to North Beam transponder and I shall require a larger dish to view.

However it is not certain whether a 1.5m dish or 1.8m dish will suffice. Can anyone advise on this point and with the larger dish if I shall be able to obtain the full range of Sky movie channels?

Sorry - I posted prior to noting the discussion under "Five"

That said would appreciate assistance on Size and Make of Dish to instal and LNB which would compliment the dish.

Please do help!

Just returned from the Algarve where indeed ch 5 has gone!

As it is now on north beam, have tried dish alignment to no avail I have a similar setup to you a Pace 2600C1 1.3m dish with a .6db LNB.

Will try a .3db in February and post my results.

Also have problems with channels 110,134,149.151,250,418,531,603,668,684,700, and music channels 449,450,451,452,453 and 454.

Do you have problems on these?
