    Default ITV ``no signal`` when I add channels?

    Hi, I`ve just bought an Amstrad 200 Dodgybox for use here in Germany it works fine with BBC, Channel 4+5 but refuses to
    update to any of the ITV regionals - ``no signal found``

    I was told by the EBAY vendor that the system would automaticaly update witin 1 - 24 hours to allow me to ``add channels`` and get ITV.

    There doesnt seem to be a problem with the box since it finds all the channels broadcast on other frequencies when I do the add channels sequence.

    I have full ``signal strength`` and 3/4 ``signal quality``.

    I noticed some of you seem to be getting Coronation street so is the problem with my card?

    Thanks for any help or advice

    where abouts in Germany are you and what size dish are you using ?

    ITV is transmitted in a weaker signal and has a smaller footprint. Im in NRW inbetween Dortmund and Bielefeld and have an 80cm dish ,a mate of mine about 5 km away though can get everything on his minidish.

    Hi, I`m in Berlin using a 70cm dish.

    I have just checked the signal using a Kathrein receiver and it shows no signal for the ITV frequencies so I think you must be right about the dish size.

    I have another old 90 cm Kathrein dish with analog LNB which I will have to change, if this works I`ll post it.

    Thanks again
