Mark Aberfan Aerials: I would have thought the only problem would be that, as also "premium" satellite broadcaster (for the porn channels) he probably won't want to risk a dispute on that front.

NottsUK: The satellite has two steerable beams, their configuration is shown at Eutelsat satellites : EUROBIRD 1 satellite at 28.5 degrees East - they are "global" to the whole bird, you can't steer each transponder.

Also isn't the "F" in "F4L" to denoted "fixed"?

Hi Brian,

I agree, I'd forgotten about the adult channels ! I should of said fives output !
I suppose the debate of what is porn & what is adult is for another place & another day.

Hi all,

Im wondering if chan 4 has taken advice & followed the example of the german fta satellite channels & not worrying about beam footprint, if they have the legal green light this could be very good news for freesat, any thoughts ?

Mark Aberfan Aerials: I'm wondering if they will use the whole transponder for the various regional versions of C4 (for adverts only, not content), or if they will also launch their other channels in HD for Freesat, such as Film4 HD, which is currently "cable exclusive".

It does rather look like Karen Murphy has proven the point to C4 that I have been making since the digital satellite services launched about EU rules on "not worrying about footprints".

Wasn?t there something about "free movement of goods AND SERVICES" in those glorious treaties?
There must be secret appendices containing
copyright dogma and exclusions to protect big profits ...

An OBE for Karen Murphy!

Funny you don't hear it from those with a vested interest in you not knowing it.

Brian- Some reports on other forums stating that the Humax DTR isn't permiting or storing recordings at this time. I've yet to try this with my own box. However no problems with my Technisat receivers nor my Technomate 6800.
Will pst back once I've checked out my receiver. - No doubt this won't be a problem once inclusion ont the "Freesat" EPG

P>S If anyone else reading this post has managed to find out how to re-name channels with the Technisat HDFS - It's elluded me) - can post a positive response to this it would me much appreciated.

Les Nicol: Yes, you wouldn't expect a channel without correct EPG information to be allow automatic recording.

That why, I imagine, they have given themselves six weeks to sort it out.
