Recommended Software Update- ASTRA 28 Enhancement

Recommended Software Update ASTRA 28 Enhancement
Release Friday 24/07/2015

Note: This Astra 28 update also replaces the last mandatory update for Astra 28 released in June 2015 due to a frequency change. Therefore if you have not used your Seeker prior to June and you are experiencing problems locking onto Astra 28 this release will also solve this problem.

For UK Channels

We feel that it is very important to strive to continuously improve our systems. This non essential software update will improve satellite acquisition times, give you the best possible coverage throughout Europe and also give greater scope for future frequency changes to the Astra 2 satellite with the addition of a second Astra 28 frequency option.

We strongly recommend that this software is installed at you earliest convenience to benefit from the improvements to your system, please use the links further down the page.

Seeker Update
After the update you will have Astra 28 listed as before but also Ast 28S listed. Ast 28S is the secondary Astra 28 frequency option that can be used as you travel further South into Europe.

All future manufactured Seeker product will have this software installed as standard.

Target Update
Due to the Target system having a choice of only 5 Satellites it will be manufactured with a default satellites set (Astra 19, Astra 28, Astra 23, Hotbird and Thor) programmed into the control box but with the enhanced specification benefits as above.

However you can download the enhanced Astra 28 specification with also a custom satellite set which will replace Thor with an additional Astra 28 frequency as above, Ast 28S. We recommend this update for all customers who watch UK Channels and do not require the THOR Satellite.

Don’t Forget your SKEW!
If you are travelling South into Europe this summer and want to maximise your dish performance to pick up UK channels as the Satellite Footprint weakens remember you can adjust your LNB Skew.See user instructions

Astra 2G Launch Location Change

After a delay due to the U.S State Department sanctions against Russia, Astra 2G will now be moved to the Baikonur Cosmosdrome and will launch any time between July and the end of September. Astra 2G is looking like it has similar pan European and UK footprints as the other 2 new satelltes.

Astra 2E Has Arrived

"Extensive in-orbit tests have since then confirmed the satellite to be fully operational and performing to specifications.
ASTRA 2E has now been deployed at its final destination in the orbital arc of 28.2/28.5 degrees East, where it is co-positioned with ASTRA 2A, ASTRA 2F and ASTRA 1N. Over the coming weeks, BSkyB, Channel4, ITV and BBC programming in this arc will be transitioned to the new satellite with its powerful footprint over the British Isles"


Planned Changes To Satellite TV

All the TV channels that we watch in the UK are broadcast from the Astra 2 Satellite. Even when in Europe, we still point our satellite dish at Astra 2.
Like most broadcast satellites, Astra 2 is actually a group, or cluster, of small satellites all positioned at the same point in space.
The channels we watch are broadcast from one of these satellites which, up until now have been Astra 2 A, B and D.
These are now coming to the end of their serviceable life and over the coming months will be replaced by Astra 2 E, F and G

What Effect Will These Changes Have

If you travel within the UK, then your viewing will not be affected and you will continue to receive all the services you currently have.
Viewers outside the British Isles in mainland Europe may lose channels or have to upgrade their dish to receive the new satellites.

At the time of going to print, Channel 5 is already being broadcast on the new footprint, so if you can receive this now, you should continue to have all channels available to you.
The other main terrestrial channels are expected to move during the summer of 2013.

It's worth remembering that other satellites, such as Astra 1 and Hotbird, broadcast a limited range of English speaking channels, including BBC World, on footprints that cover most of Europe.

As the changes to Astra 2 take place we will be providing more information.
To keep up to date with the latest information we advise you to keep visiting this website www.maxview.co.uk or visit us on Favebook for our latest postings.
