    My apologies, what I meant was other than those you have mentioned, e.g. foreign stations that can be rec'd on a standard $ky r'cvr and dish.:oops:

    You can't receive any 'foreign' channels on your Sky box without moving your dish to another position - say 19E or 13E.
    Even then, in most parts of the country, the mini-dish is too small for reliable reception.
    The Sky box was never meant for this and makes things as difficult as possible.
    All frequencies must be tuned in manually, channels will not appear on the EPG and must be accessed through the 'Additional Channels' menu. Add to this that most (if not all) European FTA will be non-English.
    In other words it's not worth the hassle
