Two BBC HD channels have been switched on today. Anyone tried to receive them yet?
Got a 80cm dish in Neuchâtel and just had a look at the BBC HD channels. Have to say that there doesn't appear to be any difference at all to me.

Re: Getting Sky TV

The signal quality for Channel 5 and Channel 4 HD were noticeably lower after the satellite switch, but no problem - until the other night with cloud and rain both channels started to break up.

However after a bit of fine tuning of my 80cm dish position this morning I have 100% signal strength and 95% quality on these channels...

Re: Getting Sky TV

Apparantly according to a German site I follow the signal have some "drift" and are better in the mornings. But in Engelberg I had the same as you, fine tune helped.

This is the forum (in German) about reception in/around Germany. (Add the dots)

Was a bit worried about this so brought a new high spec quad lnb with me when I came out from the uk for the winter but can see no change on an 80cm dish in Vaud. Actually get better reception here on that than I do in the uk on my 60cm sky dish. New lnb gives almost maxed out signal and quality.

Was having withdrawal symptoms as I had got used to controlling my HDTV box from my ipad with the sky+ app so decided to try it here. If you dont bother with vpns etc which are a bit complicated then The problem is to connect your hd box to the network without connecting to the Internet at which point sky might get antsy. This can be done by selecting manual ip setup and putting in a gateway and dns server on the network that doesn't exist but make sure the ip address is valid for your network. Suggest you disconnect the dsl line while you set it up. Install the ipad sky app and it should see the hd box and let you control it, play recorded program's and set new programs.
