Good find.
What dish setup do you have and what approximate location are you? I'm in north Hertfordshire (UK) with a 90cm dish and the signal is too weak to be viewable.

Hi mulgroover,
North West UK 1.2M channel master dish. The signal is strong, on my dish, but I did have to alter the elevation slightly during the heavy rain, due to signal break up, that resolved my problem.
Best wishes
Mickha

Hi johnsattuk,
depending on your location you could need upto a 1.2M dish to pick up the Fox feed on 16E, the channel scans in as unnamed but when you're viewing you see Fox Sports logo. It's on 24/7, usually showing American Sports. You can also find Fox Sports on 7E, but this channel doesn't show the Cricket coverage.
Best wishes
Mickha
Just noticed your system details and because of your location and dish you shouldn't have a problem, providing you're tracking the satellite arc correctly, try manoevering your dish, via your receiver, to get a stronger signal.
Yes this Test started today, Friday, suppose it's to ensure a good crowd for Sunday, as that might be the last day !!!!!!!

Hi Mickha

Thanks for that. I am on my 90cm Fibo at the moment, get plenty of strong signals on other 13E channels. When I have watched before I may have been using my 120cm :(

Hi johnsattuk,
it's on Eutelsat W2, 11021 H 2894, but I think you will have to use your 1.2M dish, they are currently showing baseball, they go to the cricket just before the start of play at 11AM.
Hi Topper,
you're not the only one shocked, I spent Thursday Morning scanning the internet and teletext trying to find out why I wasn't getting the Test match on Radio 5 sports extra or satellite, I thought I was going crazy until I double checked the dates on the ECB website !!!!!!!! How dare they mess about with the traditional Thursday starts !!!!!

Bingo cricket at last :-doh2

Re-installed my 120cm, no difference still no cricket, D/L a recent settings file and copied all relevant data for fox sports , instant full strength signal.
I think I may put my 90cm back now to try, I,m sure it will be OK :-doh!
