Tv reception on new Astra 2F

  • It looks like BBC 1 hd is testing on Astra 2F at 11.023 H, SR 23.000, FEC 2/3, DVB-S2 8PSK
    and is available here in Tenerife.  3M Dish   ( am watching it now )

    So fingers crossed  :)

    Can anybody else try these frequencies on smaller dishes and report back please.

  • Tried it on a 1 metre dish and "nada".  I only set the freq, polarisation and FEC as I could not find access to RS and DVD settings.

    I heard the old satellite will switch off on 25 November.  Any truth in this?

    My current settings are 12.051GHz; V; 27.5; 2/3 and I receive all the usual channels without a SKY card excluding, of course, BBC/ITV, etc.
