    thanks , yeah i can easily get those ones, about 12.5db signal. its just the test card i cant get anymore but i used to be able to, very odd.

    i wasnt sure if my dish had got out of alignment or not

    i think signal is reduced enough so that smaller dishes can not lock on it anymore ??
    i can only just lock it on my 2m prime focus dish with Rain .

    Here in West Midlands with my Gibertini 1.25m and Inverto Black ultra I did get a lock on one EPL feed on a bright cloudless sunny day but it did break up. Realistically you need a bigger dish to get the EPL feeds on 3W. I've tried many LNB's too and IBU was still best for these feeds even better than Inverto PLL at getting a lock.

    i did lock it yesterday on my 2m Prime focus dish but my issue is if i raise dish elevation it will be perfectly fine
    but then signals on 10E,7E will be reduced too much ..its a no win scenario ,lol's

    Did tweek my dish today and actually managed a good lock on 3W and watched Chelsea v Middlesborough on my Gibi OP 125L with IBU LNB in West Midlands. First ever match I've locked onto proper at 3W and been able to watch on my Gibi 1.25m.

    A good day today to test 3°west.

    MoTD feed for Watford V Brentford is receivable and stable in SE England on my 1.2 metre dish (clear skies here).

    Details are 11052v / 10000 / FEC: 3/5 / DVB-S2 / 8PSK (credit to Dave5118 for posting on SU - biss key there too)

    Have tested some of these Saturday 3°w feeds this season, but this is the first where I have managed to get a good signal.

    Yeah good strong lock here too on a 1.2m near Manchester.

    I just used the Feedfinder plugin to send the dish there and scan it in and then it adds the Biss key in use. Much easier lol.
