I have a skydish and freeview decoder all working fine on freeview, is it easy to tune into the free to air christian stations? I've done a bit of searching online only finding limited information on it. Theres plenty of guys offering a service to tune in for you but i'd prefer to diy if I can. Thanks

your dish will need to be repointed to Optus D2 if you wish to view the Christian Channels on there (there are numerous ones on there)

Dishpointing is a 5 min job if you know what you're doing.

If you point the dish at Optus D2, you will lose the Freeview channels which are on Optus D1.

Not if he installs a 2nd LNB on his dish and a DisEQc switch. If interested I can supply all the gear and helpful advice for doing this. PM if interested.

good point. A second LNB is probably a better way to go
