Hi there,

A few questions for the Vu Duo+ gurus out there :-)

Currently I can see all the Freeview channels, the Sky channels (can't watch them of course as I've no subscription)  and SBS HD.

What other free to air channels might I be able to receive, and how would I go about adding them ?

I'm running the standard firmware on the STB and have an 85cm dish.

Just after some pointers on how it all works really.

there's not much else on D1, except the occasional uplink

You have found Nine/GEM/GO on 12395 vertical SR 11908 FEC 2/3 ? Dunno if it's still there

Nobody mentioned SBS TWO yet.

Also, for a brief time, there were two feeds for, I think it was 'Seven' - one for Mackay and one for Rockhampton - both gone now as far as I know.

How do you go about adding them?

Easiest way is to look on for the details and put as many as you need to in as parameters for a scan for new services. It is a weakness of the Vu+ Duo that it does not have the hardware for blind scanning.
