Quite correct, Formentera del Segura ( near Rojales )
Will check again on 1.2 and 1.8 when the golf has finished on 12.5 W!

LP, how does it look on your 1.2, if your not watching the golf as well. You´re about 15 Km further south?

Some of these channels are viewable with the film-on service:D

Dave is one of them:-rofl2

If anyone use tvheadend, https://tvheadend.org/ it's very convenient to use filmon channels together with you ordinary channels (DVB-T/S etc). Just add IPTV in tvh and link to this simple script,

bbc_one.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh
/usr/local/bin/livestreamer http://www.filmon.com/tv/bbc-one best -O | /usr/bin/avconv -i pipe:0 -acodec copy -vcodec copy -bsf h264_mp4toannexb -f mpegts pipe:1
Do one script for every channel. You also need to install livestreamer of course. I don't have any subscription so the quality is very poor on a 55" TV but ok in "emergency" situations.


How it looks like in kodi.

Just turned the 1.2 to 28.2 and have Drama on. Only getting 6.2 DB so quite a lot of pixels!
Switching feed to 1.8 fixed dish, 8.7 dB, no problem with reception.

How does that C/N compare with the likes of the C and D band 2E/2G spots? I was only seeing a 0.2dB increase in C/N between TP6 and TP22 here in North West England so reckon the EiRP has been wound back to restrict overspill. The PSB spots in band C/D give over 15dB C/N, measured with my Horizon HDSM.

Not quite sure what you mean. I did a comparison against other spots in post 30. " Likes of the C and D band 2e/2g spots " I thought everything on the bird is KU?
Advise txp´s you want checked and I will gladly check

That´s quite a severe drop off between our two locations, Huevos is in between us, would love to know what he´s getting there. I´ll try and contact him to find out.
Is there a significant difference between this and say ch5 or bbc1?
