    No Display on Front Panel (Foxsat HDR)

    Thanks for advice Tivu, I've had a look inside the box, and there are no loose cables or any signs of damage to the the components on the board, in fact it looks brand new. Guess it's a case of waiting to see if it gets worse!

    BBC iplayer on Freesat - how to connect it up

    Just connected it up and used the code, but as you said Analoguesat, it's not available outside UK, I'm in Spain. I was hoping that there would be some radio content, witch I can access from a computer, but nothing there yet, hopefully that will be added later

    Sky + Receiver for Mallorca

    The other option is the Humax Foxsat hdd+, but it's not cheap, about £250, I have one working here in southern Spain, and I'm very pleased with it. You will need a twin or quad LNB to get all of it's features i.e. record 1 channel while watching another or record 2 channels at the same time

    Reception problems in S Spain Ch4 E4 m&m ITV

    It is a 1.4mt dish, the so called "Portuguese" dish that is popular here in Spain, and it's mounted on a post that is in 150mm of concrete so it is never affected by the wind.

    Reception problems in S Spain Ch4 E4 m&m ITV

    I recently upgraded my Invacom snf-031 single lnb to the quad qdf-031, and it improved reception, so that I now receive the astra 2d horizontal tps almost all day. Same dish etc. no re-aligning. Although these lnbs are not cheap (€95 delivered) It was worth it to me to get the extra channels.
