    Resently bought this MH from Germany which has satellite system fitted.
    My problem is I can`t get any English channels, I have tried retune the system but it keeps to the German channels. Is it locked into them, if so, how do I unlock & retune. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Delete all channels, or reset the receiver to factory default, and then tune.
    It may be retaining whats already tuned.

    First you need to make sure the dish is pointing at the correct satellite, most of the German Channels are at 19.2 E and as an import, the dish is probably defaulting to 19.2E
    The UK channels are at 28.2E about 10 deg anticlockwise from the 19.2E ,you will need to work out how to set the dish to 28.2E, my French system has 5 loaded bearings set and the UK sat is at position 3.
    If you give the full details of the system somebody may well be able to give you more specific advice.
    Once you get the dish to point at 28.2 go through the set up procedure and do a full scan, that should reveal all the UK channels, they probably will not be in any sort of order but should be there.
    Cheers
