Yes, it works fine, but I have to say with a satellite beeper.

You will find this difficult, if not impossible, to set up without one - as Katie has found.

The digital signal takes a short time to lock and you need to tweek it to get the best signal.

If you're going to use it for travelling (it's intended purpose) then it's an essential item - available for around a tenner.

From London you will be able to view the FTA channels on Astra 28.2E http://www.lyngsat.com/28east.html

You will not be able to view most of these with that size of dish in Valencia though, probably better to look at Hotbird 13E or Astra 19.2.

On Astra 28.2 East...
FTA = Free to Air - Channels that do not require a card - BBC, Sky News
FTV = Free to View - Need a card i.e. ITV, Channel 4

systems with larger size dish?
The size of dish will determine the amount of signal you receive - generally the bigger the better.

As Hotbird 13E and Astra 19.2E use very powerful satellites they are easiest to receive.
