    Hi there,
    Sorry if this question has been asked before.
    Can the standard sky set up be used to get another satellites,
    if not what would be needed, ie, dish realignment, and what can you receive. ie channels.
    Thanks,
    Barry.

    Barry sky was designed to be stuck at 28%e and left there for good. To make this happen the sky box is only for sats at 28e and the tuner is rigged to pick up only a few frequencies ie 27500, 22000. Sats are like radios they broadcast in loads of frequencies just like radio. Sky will get a few on other sats but it is a waste of time. What u need is a motorised set up and a dish of 1m but can depend on where u are, a prper digital sat receiver ie will pick up everything BUT there is not a lot of FREE stuff out there.

    Hope this helps

    I dont know but your Sky dish is obviously pointing at thier satelite. I supose you could adjust the dish but you'd need to know where to point it & even then, any signal may not be in a form your box could decode. Sorry I can't be of more help.
