I just got a DVB S2 TV sat card working with WMC7. It is great! However, I have some questions about how to get the right TV channels from the right satellites.
I am trying to get channels from the following satellites, which I think are the ones that provide TV channels from my area (Dublin) and south of Europe:
- ASTRA 1D, 3A (23.5E)
- ASTRA 1E, 1F, 1G, 1H, 1KR, 2C (19.2E)
- ASTRA 2A B D (28.2E) EUROBIRD1 (28.5E)
What is the right method to scan for channels?
The issues I have are the following:
Wen I go in WMC7 to Settings -> TV SETUP there are two options:
- Satellite transponder scan
- Set up TV signal.
If I choose " Set up TV signal", I only find channels in "ASTRA 2A B D (28.2E) EUROBIRD1 (28.5E)". However, if I do "Satellite transponder scan", which I thought it was only to scan for new channels, I find hundreds of channels in the 3 satellites.
What is the difference between both options?
Some channels do not seem to work
Also, some of the channels which show in the Guide do not seem to display any signal at all. This is annoying because it happens with channels I am really interested in watching( "TVE International" and "Arte"), which I know can be watched from Dublin.
Does anybody know what is going on?
I cannot find at all ITV HD. I thought ITV was transmitting in HD?
If someone can help me to get my head around this, it would really appreciate it!
