Just before Xmas on our Xmas shop we popped into a tv shop. We have been thinking about changing our LNB for a while and up the corner of his shop on a shelf he had a black pro quad 40mm HD tv DVB-S2. So for equivalant of £30 approx we thought we would give it a try on our 80cm dish. It has improved the quality and signal about 20% and on ITV HD we were receiving something but unwatchable (just coloured squares). So today being a bit bored and the weather being ok and sick of christmas pud I decided to have a play around with the dish. Baring in mind before we could only get we believe PE beam as we could only get sky news, horror channel, cbs, challenge and general rubbish. After half an hour we now have all the BBC channels including HD, all ITV channels including HD all channel 4 but none of the 5 channels. We couldn't believe our luck. Is this 2F ? The best thing is while we were buying the LNB I asked about dishes and he had a metre dish for the same price. So when I install this who knows!!
Just hope that this lasts longer than today!

BBC are 1N. They will move to 2E in February - then you will probably lose them again

We had better make the most of it then and wait and see what happens. It's hard to believe that 5 years ago we were getting all channels on an old sky mesh dish plocked on the ground. Thats life!
