Analogue Box with Astra 1D - Is it any use ?


Standard Member
Hello folks, Happened to be in the loft and saw my old Pace Analogue Satellite receiver with the Astra 1D attachment. (This was ofcourse replaced by Sky Digital). Can Is till hook it up to my dish and receive any channels ? (Getting bored with Sky !)

A few months ago I think there was one analogue channel and that could disappear any time.
It might make a nice paperweight however :smashin:

Astra 1D moved to a totally new position some time ago BUT there are qute a few anaogue channels at 19.2 East (its old position) = see here (those in white)
Astra 1F/1G/1H/1KR/1L at 19.2°E - LyngSat
and some still at Hotbird 13 East see here (again inwhite)
Hot Bird 6/7A/8 at 13.0°E - LyngSat

But you will need a dish aligned on the correct satellite. The other replies seem confused by your reference to your old 1D frequency extender/shifter which was merely to extend the frequency range tunable with some very early analogue receiver/lnb combinations and probably will not be required with a modern lnb.
