Thanks we had a chat but really after a 1.2m dish you need to go right up to 5m at a cost of 25000 to get the UK channels, I would add a list for a 1.2m here but never bothered getting sky in and just stick with Nilesat. Has anyone here know of a complete channel list working on a 1.2m on the island?

Even the 5mtr will struggle to get all channels. (beamwidth too tight to maximise all 3 astra birds at 28.2)

From memory kingofsat list for 28.2e european beams is about right with channel lists.

Sorry, bit picky the 5m dishes are for the UK beams, the Euro beams can be got with a normal large dish
