I'm having an ongoing problem with my Satellite system not showing the FTA Greek channels on 39east. Using Manhattan CI reciever.

One day the channel kept breaking up like the dish had moved slightly in the wind as its 120cm. So we moved it slightly hoping it would fix it and it lost all the channels.

Finally we moved it back into position but could not pick up any Greek channels just the bulgarian channels. All the Bulgarian FTA have excellent reception 80% and some of the Encrypted Greek channels do too but none of the FTA Greek channels have any reception just a big fat 0%

I've double checked all the frequiencies on lyngsat. And i've changed my LNB just incase it was not working properly!

I'm positive i have found the 39E and the LNB is working perfectly its brandnew! So what else do i do??

Eagerly awaiting answers :)

Which Bulgarian channels are you getting - theres Bulgarian services on 16E as well.

Another possibility is that asthe Bulgarians are H polarisation, & the Greeks are V polarised. If the switching isnt working correctly, you wont get the Greeks!.

Ok we know you are on 39E now. It looks like your V/H switching isnt working properly as you are getting the H channels, but not the V channels.

Ok so how do i fix the V to H thing then? I changed my LNB! Is it something to do with my Reciever?

I've just swapped out my reciever with the crappy one from Lidl and its doing exactly the same thing as my Manhattan.

Its only picking up those channels i said in my earlier post.

So is it something to do with the LNB? Its brandnew?!

I'm trying to get the FTA Greek channels on 39E but I can only receive a few transponders at a really good signal rating. Everything else 0.

I've tried all over the internet and this is my problem in the simpliest!

Its NOT the polarisation otherwise i would receive all H and no V and vice versa. In this case i can recieve on H and one V.

The LNB is brand new and its not the receiver as i swapped it for a LIDL one that still has the same problem!

IDEAS Much Appriciated!

Try physically rotating the LNB in its holder by 90 degrees (either way) and rescan.

If you then get the other channels, then the second LNB is also iffy.

after rotating the LNB some it finally picked it up, thankfully. It seems like the LNB holder is not center. I take it the LNB needs to be pointing directly in the center of the dish to pick all transponders on 39E.

Sounds like the LNB wasn't skewed properly, for Hellas sat in the UK, you need to skew the lnb so that the bottom is pointing to about 7 O'clock as you look at the dish.

Subscription details here:

http://www.athinasat.com/english.htm

Although as is a platform for Cyprus gawd only knows if you can subscribe from abroad!
Probably not. Every operator has to pay for copyright. the amount of payment depends on the area they provide their services.

Probably, they pay copyright (to studios for the movies, to sports team etc) for cyprus only. In this case they are not allowed to accept subscribers outside from Cyprus. There is only one way to manage to subscribe: if you know someone who lives in Cyprus, then he subscribes and then sends the card to you.

I have the same problem- on my motorized dish most channels on hellas, like he ukrainian ones, open well, but the greek fta's show but keep breaking up. Strangely this is of actual interest to me since I'm a ukrainian who speaks greek.

Hi Can anyone help us install a greek sat tv in washington, we have a friend who works for sky who has installed the dish and receiver but cant find the channels on his meter...Does anyone in this area know what to do, we would be prepared to pay to have someone come and get it working, my 75 year old father bought it to try and keep up to date with what is happening in his homeland of Cyprus and we have had no joy....Any help advice would be hugely appriaciated.

Regards
Chris
