Yet the TV3 schedule starts at 12.

Last section 4-6.. sooo I don't expect much of that to be live.

I see on their website there will be live race start. They'll start live, then backfill it with ads to pay the bills. They do the same for Bathurst qualifying.

Anyone getting this with a sky dish or does it need to be larger?

Sky dish, but it needs to be moved by about 9deg left to roughly 320deg, and rotate the skew on the LNB

10laps ahead :)

...And if the Sky dish is already pointing at Optus D2 then you'll need a relatively sensitive tuner. The signal isn't particularly strong...

I dont think I have a sensitive tuner.. but I do have steelcaps :D

Got out there and kicked it till I got 20-30 religious channels. Then scanned the TP, and kicked it till I got maximum signal 45-50%, then rotated the LNB (it seems to be a lot flatter than the other channels) till its sitting on about 58-60%

Geesus mate you could always try releasing the bolts a bit aye Wink

Yeah just for notes sake, I took the sky Dual LNB, turned the dish 4 degrees and now get C1 and D2 off the standard sky 65cm dish set up.  Tweaking would improve stuff for sure but a fairly rough/quick change saw me getting the supercars world feed pretty easily (which looks very very good for SD stuff). 

And yes as much god as you can take for free too, plus NHK world from Japan (which is what the main NZ channels switched too full time when they had the earthquake).
