Hi Guys - I'm not sure if this is in the right topic or not...

Is anybody out there getting any channels off other sattelites other than Optus D1? I would like to change my satellite dish and add other other channels off other satellites like BBC World, SBS, etc.

I've had a look, but I can't seem to see the other satellites listed when I configure Windows 7 Media Centre.

Does anyone have a solution to this???

Hi - thanks for the response. I'm not sure if I am missing something here, or perhaps I have not explained myself properly? I'll try again:

In Windows 7 Media Centre, when I choose which satellite I would like to do a scan on, it doesn't come up with Intelsat 5 or Optus D2 as options. How do I add these manually to Windows 7 MC???
