Just add the following TP to D1 and do a scan to watch them:
Freq: 12646MHz
Pol: Vertical
SR: 12600

The above lists a freq of 12646MHz

However, on the lyngsat listings for D1 they have no listing for this frequency but have SBS listed as follows

Freq: 12648MHz
Pol: Vertical
SR: 12600

Is lyngsat wrong? Is freeviewshop wrong? has anybody tried the above frequency setting to see if it works?
Is there really any difference between the two settings?

the 12646 frequency gives me channels, 12648 does not. perhaps the two frequencies are broadcasting from different transponders, one that I can see, one i cannot?

I'm gonna try it out next weekend. Perhaps Lyngsat is wrong about the frequency - because if it was correct we should be able to pick it up here in NZ as it is on a nanz beam - same as freeview.

the frequencies vary slightly depending a little on your setup, I think it's the LNB that makes a difference.

I have a Digistar similar to the one I believe you purchased, and SBS channels are booming in using the freeviewshop settings. I believe Lyngsat got it wrong.

I can tune in using either 12646 or 12648 just fine using a DVB-S card.

One thing to note is that the Network Information inside the DVB Stream actually specifies the Terrestrial frequencies for Tasmania so isn't useful as a reference point.
