      Manually Tuning Spanish TV Channels

      Hi,

      Are there any Spanish (FTV or PTV) channels that you are able to receive with just the standard Sky+ equipment? (I have the full Sky World subscription)

      Up until recently TVE was available on channel 795, but this has recently gone off air. I assume as the channel itself is still being broadcast I will be able to manually pick this up, but are there any other Spanish channels that are available in this way?

      I notice a Spanish TV package for about 270 which included a dish that looked just like a standard Sky minidish, which made me think that it might be possible to pick other Spanish channels up....

      Any comments/advice/suggestions gratefully received.

      You could try manually adding TVEi ( 11.469 , H, 27500, 2/3 ) and see what happens. AFAIK, there are none others available on the Eurobird/Astra cluster that Sky uses ( and at which your dish points ). Other Spanish services are available, but most are at 19.2E & 13E which you won't get with a fixed Sky dish. See here for details.

      There is also an ongoing discussion on this topic at AV Forums, which you may find interesting.
