    As some will know, we have internet through Satellite, which is fantastic...

    We cannot look at SKY TV and use the internet,,, cos the Dish moves to a designated Internet Satellite...

    But over the last few days,,,,, when we are on (I think) Astra 2... we can pick up about 28 of the normal programmes , which we receive at home on a normal dish.. BBC1/2, ITV 1/2 and all the film channels and a load of others...

    With this contraption once Astra 2 was selected for SKY TV,,,, that was it, unless we switch back to the internet Sat...

    Now when we change channel...... the dish moves to another satellite and the LNB moves round.. but only on some channels... we are still getting the same 28 channels,,,,, but seems not from the one satellite... :RollEyes:

    Would this be from the change they are doing with the new sat.... or summat else... ?

    Just curious... :Cool:

    The UK TV channels only come from one group of satellites - those at 28.2-28.5 east - the Astra 2 group.

    You will not be getting them from any other satellite.

    Nor is it anything to do with the new satellites.

    Just .... you.....?

    Must be some thing up with my set up then... :Sad:

    Cos,,, changing between some channels it comes up on the screen... (Please wait sat dish being moved)...

    And you can hear it move... and I think the LNB moves round a small bit...

    I know the LNB moves round half to three quarters of a turn changing from Sky TV to Sat internet and visa versa...
