I bought a cheap Ross package from B&Q so no point spending money having it
fitted. I seem to be nearly there with about 90 channels showing but most
of them soft porn or english speaking foreign channels ( babestation etc).
The info for a channel shows astra/euro so I think I'm on the right satelite
and have to increase the reception quality but how? Or am I pointing at the
Andrew, if you're after the Freesat channels you have to align the dish to
the Astra satellites at 28.2 east.
There's a second group of Astras at 19.2 east with a much more limited range
of channels: it's possible that this is the position you've found.
The Astra sats and their respective channels are listed at

Unless he has a huge dish, the beamwidth will include 28.5 and 28.2,
It is more likely (IMHO) he doesn't have the details of the freesat
transponder loaded into his receiver. if he's getting some stuff
from 28.5 then i'd suggest doing a blind scan to see what else is
there. Alternatively the OP can transponders having got the
details of the freesats transponder from lyngsat.com.
Receivers come with a pre-programmed list of transponders, but that
does go out of date.
