    I have had this system for a number of years, but rarely use it. Since most areas are now switched over I find digital services generally ok.

    Recently had to set it up, but, found I could not get the same channels I used to.

    I am on the old Astra2AB

    From UK same satellite, same place. You may need to let it retune once you've found the satellite.

    Hi Phil

    In the scroll down list of satellites I can not find the ones you mention. As you probably guess I am lost when it comes to technical things lol
