???Actually, Astra 1 and 2 are in the same place so it's only a matter of selecting Astra 2 from the menus then retuning.
"it gets Astra 2 ok" - how do you know?are you getting all the uk channels?We have tried, it gets Astra 2 ok but however we reset or refund it we can only get German. Back to factory settings on the tv and choosing English doesn't work either.
You didn't need to do all that, all you needed to do was by an English TV. We store 5 in the garage. When we arrive on site we get the TV of the country were in so German in Germany Spanish in Spain French TV in France and a Bang and Olafson for when were in Norway (although that one also works in Sweden and Finland) it sounds a lot of faff but it means we never have to change the setting in different countries. Does up the payload somewhat though.[/QUOTE
Havnt you got room to take
actors, camera men, directors, and all crew and equipment to make your own programmes! Lol
And you have to install the new channels, your tuner doesn't know you have changed satellites, only the dish control box does. Select Astra 28 from the satellite list on the control and do an install on the tv. I have Alphotronic tv the software is designed to be the winner for the worst and most unfriendly, and unfortunately you will find the tuner is not very sensitive, so try to install in the UK on a nice clear windless day. Vorsprung durch technique.
