    We are currently in Agde near Narborough. Oyster2 System with 85cm dish and freesat box. We can get all UK programs.
    Another van parks next to me with the same setup but his dish just keeps spinning and cannot lock on to the Astra satellite.
    Any ideas what could be wrong.

    John I think the Oyster was like my Mobilsat and had to be re-programmed after they fiddled with the satellite last year. I wonder if next door has or needs to have his re-programmed. The other suggestion is to look at his LNB towards the dish and it really should be twisted to about twenty five minutes to the hour and the other thing is to make sure his F plugs have not got water in. After this I am stumped apart from letting him watch your tele.

    John, Are you sure Ange hasn't switched it to fan mode? Quite warm this evening in France!

    Ere ! my cheapy chinky sat nav guided me down to the alps n back never put a foot wrong.

    Got her knickers in a twist once on a new piece of road cos she hadn't been up dated about it but otherwise "Katie" and the system coped with everything and when used in conjunction with Campercontact can't think that it could be bettered. (y)

    Lunarman (bloody cheek 'cos he hasn't got a Lunar anymore(y)) kindly updated my satnav for me. Anyway it's performed superbly since. So I don't have a problem with Katie (or any other friends she may have:D) but getting mixed up between Narbonne & Narborough is just plain senility ........coat is already on :getmecoat:


    All said TIC:D
