Loss of UK TV channels

Astra have moved a number of channels onto the new Astra 2-F satellite overnight. The result is we have now LOST these channels. As yet I don't know if there is a solution - Bruixot, can I try some tests on your big dish??

The lost channels are:
Channel 5 - region 1-5 (which is all of them)
5 USA   
5 USA +1   
5 star   
5 star +1   
Channel 5 Region 1 +1
ITV 1 Meridian North
ITV 1 Anglia west
ITV 1 yorkshire east
ITV 1 Granada
ITV 1 Central south west
ITV 1 yorkshire west +1
ITV 1 Central South
ITV 1 Central east
ITV 1 Wales + 1
ITV 1 Tyne Tees + 1
ITV 1 Westcountry west +1
ITV 1 London
Channel 4 London
4Seven

Some recions of ITV1 are still being broadcast from the old satellite so can still be received but you may need to manually tune the transponder.
The details are:
Frequency: 10758
SR: 22000
SEC: 5/6

I don't know how long we will continue to be able to recieve the remaining ITV and BBC channels.. time to learn Spanish???

Possibly time to stop watching mundane tv and do something useful and rewarding. Wink

Oh dear. You're welcome to come and experiment here. When did this happen? I was watching 4seven last night. And it's about time we all learned Spanish anyway : )
A friend tells me that they can press a button on their tv control and English language programmes on the Spanish tv can be switched to the original soundtrack.

Nigel,
I sussed how to display the channel details on the Humax.  If it's still relevant, BBC1 HD is showing as 10847MHz, Vertical, 23000, 2/3

Could this mean more "Expat Babies" in the future amongst  the younger members of our community.  Undecided

We seem to have an Astra 19 2 E signal and up until today we thought we had won the lottery as for the last few weeks we had regained Anglia, plus several BBC 1's, also several ITV channels and the elusive channel 5. Imagine my horror when reading the forum then running spilling tea and biscuits to my TV. The march of progress had struck, no channel 5, no Anglia, only 1 BBC1 but a new CBBC and to my horror a euro sport channel. What on earth is happening, give me back my TV programs and CJ I do have other interest beside my TV, my stomach. My only hope is this will not be updated.
Yours a displeased Bulldog.

FYI Nigel (and others). My brother who lives near Perpignan (South East France) still gets a weak signal for C5 but has lost West East Anglia but still retains East East Anglia.  (Norwich FC supporter.)

Can someone hurry up and find out what's happening. Will I be able to see the final of Strictly in 3 weeks time? It's enough to make me want to go back to UK, have you seen Spanish TV?
