Hi

Has anyone else had problems receiving any of the following:
Magic, Smash Hits, Thomas Cook, Discovery H&L +1, Animal Planet +1, EuroNews, Fox News as well as the BBC Interative News + Sport. I've got excellnet signal strangth and quality for other channel. I've also re-alighed the dish, changed the LNB and done a software download. The only thing I haven't changed is the box (Early Grundig), but it's fine on everything else. It seems to be 2 or 3 transponders it just can't seem to pick up. Has nayone got any ideas or shall I start looking for another digibox?

Without me going and looking Mark, which transponders are these channels on?

Try your digibox on a known good dish, quite possible box faulty as the early Grundig GDS 200's have been giving some problems of this nature, changing the capacitors in the PSU can be of help.

See Martin Pickerings notes @ http://www.satcure.com/gds200.htm

Not sure of the transponders, but the freq. are:

11508 V, SR27500, FEC2/3 Magic, Smash Hits + Discovery
11681 V, SR27500, FEC2/3 Euronews

Not sure of the BBC Interactive, but I think its:
12441 V, SR27500, FREC2/3

I've also noticed that a lot of the radio stantions are'nt being received either like Capital Gold, Virgin & Heart. I'm begining to think it's the box now after reading the above link :-(

Yes, from looking at Zansi's link it would appear so, it doesn't seem to be whole transponders, so it can't be an LNB fault.

If you've ever been on one of their holidays, that's about par for the course :)
