Are you using all but a sky box? (since you dont have a scan option on a sky decoder)

You won't get it on a standard freeview sat decoder as it is only on Skys platform. The sky channels you see with a standard decoder are of course the shared endcoded feeds on D2

Just in case....
It's worth mentioning that kidzone is no longer on freeview.

Soho has two channels, 'Soho' and 'Soho HD'.

SoHo - 12295000
Kidzone - 12295000

cheers for that, ive added 12295000 and scan is sort of working (i can see signal strength and quality for that frequency) but nothing is detected, i think my sybmol_rate, polarization, and fec are wrong.  you wouldnt know those values too per chance?

also is there a website that lists all these for future reference?

I don't think you are getting it.. You wont be able to see these Channels regardless of what you do. They are VideoCrypt encoded, and require a sky box or 3rd party box and card reader to view.

You will always be able to 'see' the TPs, but not anything on them.

As for what is feed on the sat. http://www.lyngsat.com/optusd1.html

I just did this the other day.

I had 12295,H,22500,34 whatever that means :)
I just copied the settings from another transponder.

Lyngsat don't have this transponder listed on their site.
I have emailed them about it.

i tried these settings and some more combinations i could think of but no joy<transponder frequency="12295000" symbol_rate="22500000" polarization="0" fec_inner="3" system="0" modulation="0"/>
 
soho hd is detected fine using

Whoops, yes, I misread the thread. That's what I get for skim reading after kids keeping you up through the night.
