    ... previously having tried with my Humax HDTV satbox since it arrived a few weeks back - nothing till tonight.

    Noticed today that the symbol rate has changed from 29000 to 28250 on all 3test txponders (11798 H, 12324 V and 12344 H - all at 3/4 and DVB S-2).

    Trying that I can now get a strong signal (whereas before I could see nothing). Still no channels found - but a step nearer to a demo channel perhaps?

    H :confused:

    Which channels are you trying to find? If its europeen channels there`s one free on air MPEG 2 SMD promo and HD1 and 5 on Astra 1D 23.5" east,but you`ll need a card to 200 euros to get HD1 and 5.I have these channels and they are sending the same programs forever, but it looks good.If you are trying to get signals on MPEG 4 you need the Premier card from Germany. They are showing movies every night.Good luck!
