Could you please help, it would seem BBC TV channels are no longer available on Astra 19.2E tuned from Dordogne, France although I could recieve then last week. Does this mean I need to direct my dish to Astra 28.2E and re tune my satellite box
4 years ago
Webmaster
That's because your dish in Dordogne was aligned to Astra 28.2º East, not to Astra 19.2º East. There are identical frequencies in use on both satellites.

Is it possible to receive the satellite signal for 28.2 and 19.2 on one satellite dish as I would like to see English and German channels. I have some reception on 19.2 but signal strength not strong enough for German channel reception. What do I need to do. Does the satellite need to be realign and if so to what position. And would I be able to watch this from two Tv's in different rooms?Does anyone know anyone in Edinburgh who could do this. Thanks

I am very much interested to watch BBC world news (in English) in my hometown Shiraz, Iran. I would appreciate it greatly if you could kindly tell me the names of the satellites along with their frequencies, symbol rates, FEC and polarization by which I can tune in to BBC world news. Many thanks for your time.

I am writing from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia( East Africa). I watch the BBc tv programs on Nile Sat and recently I encountered that the sound reception for the BBC program is so poor compared to CNN, France 24 tv channel, and other international tv channels. To listen to the news and other programs on the BBC, I have to add the volume of my 42 inch LG tv set to the maximum and when I switch to CNN or other tv channels the volume disturbs the whole neighbours. So, is there any mechanism in which you could improve its sound transmission to the standard with other tv channels ! thanks !!

Hi, very useful site. I'm trying to set up to get BBC channels on Astra 28.2E - I can get the sky channels (2F, I think) encoded but can't seem to find the BBC channels (2E 2G).

Hi, I have just received back my oyster Vision sat box which has been re-programmed to find Astra 2. Upon reinstalling inside my Motorhome the dish found the satellite immediately. I have a maxiview DVB receiver, when I do a scan for stations from my home in U.K. I only pick up Sky channels and a few fta channels. No BBC or ITV. What am I doing wrong?

Do you pick up channels from transponders in the four ranges ? The four ranges: • Vertical Low (lower than 11700 MHz) • Horizontal Low (lower than 11700 MHz) • Vertical High (higher than 11700 MHz) • Horizontal High (higher than 11700 MHz) Transponders and television channels on Astra 2E/2F/2G 28° East

If you're forced to align the dish to Astra 19.2° East, you're forced to see channels of Astra 19.2° East (Sky News Intl, BBC World News Europe HD, NHK WORLD-JPN, Al Jazeera English HD, RT HD...). • Astra 19.2° East You need signals from Astra 28.2° East to get BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four... • Astra 28.2° East Why are you forced ?

Hi, I am living in central Italy. I had a discussion with another ex pat who said that he was watching U.K. free sat tv on a 140cm dish. I know absolutely nothing about satellite TV other than it sounds a great idea and one that would help with average internet TV coverage. In words that a Beano reader can understand, what are your thoughts before I spend any money and where is the best place to buy the required equipment.

Using a free-to-air satellite system... 140 cm seems to me too small to receive the Astra 2E/2F/2G UK Ku-band Spotbeams in Abruzzo, but there are very few reports on the map above, I don't know. Contact a competent local installer and tell us your experience.

Torreblanca, Spain. 40.211143,0.20918334 on a 80cm dish - got sky with lnb quality 39% video/audio ok, bbc quality 38% video/audio not ok. Changed to a 120cm dish - sky quality now 47%, bbc now 43% video/audio ok. so far seems to be sufficient. Getting the dish properly aligned is a b*, millimeter work.

I'm just moving to a new house in Normandy, France and the satellite dish is tuned to Astra 19.2 With my new French Philips smart TV, which apparently has a built in decoder, the channel search has found over 1000 channels, none of which are for the French or UK main channels, but mostly German or other countries. I've also tried using an external satellite decoder, which has found nothing and strangely tells me to check my dish. I want to be able receive the main French and UK channels. Is Astra 19.2 the correct satellite to use and, if so, how can I receive the channels that I really want?
3 months ago
Webmaster
Main UK Channels are FTA on Astra 2 28.2° East, not Astra 1 19.2° East. Main French channels are free but encrypted (FTV, free-to-view) on : • Astra 1 19.2° East » you need a TNT Sat decoder. • Eutelsat 5W 5° West » you need a Fransat decoder or a Fransat CI+ module (inserted directly into a compatible television set).
