Hi,

I know this is not strictly an Astra matter, but since it relates to UK TV channels, I thought I would post this here.
I noticed on the KingofSat listings that there are supposed to be a load of the UK TV channels broadcasting in the Clear, some of which are subscription channels like UK TV Gold, Discovery etc. on EutelSat W2 (16 degress E)
The transponders are 11634V, 17578 5/6 and 11659, 17578 5/6.
So at the weekend, I swung my spare dish round and loked onto Eutel sat W2.
After scanning these transponders, I couldnt see any of the channels. So today, I looked again at the listings, and despite still being there, I noticed that there are no PIDs for video, etc.
Does anyone know what all this is about? Is there any way these channels can be received, or are they data channels or something like this? I would be interested to know if anyone has any ideas.

Cheers,

Mike

According to lyngsat these are BBC radio channels and they are encrypted in Mediaguard.

I can't test them, as my dish will not pull them in, the transponders appear too weak.

Oh well, cheers guys for checking. It would have been a nice little addition if they had worked.
