I am sure this is doable, but I can’t figure out how to do it.. Live F1 coverage is now only on Sky (apart from the British Grand Prix) but I think all racees are still broadcast live and unscrambled on the German channel RTL, but only in fuzzy vision the HD channel requires decoding. My TV is set-up for Freesat and works great. I have tried the non-Freesat re-tune and get 500+ TV channels, but RTL is not there. Also nearly all of the 500 are in English… RTL is on the Astra 19.2 east satellite, which I think that is the same as the Freesat… The RTL frequency is 12.188 GHz Horizontal. I am in the South of England and get a good strong signal. Anyone know how to do this tune on a Samsung TV or is there same magic built in thing to restrict non-English channels? Thanks. Update: I was going to delete the post, but I will leave it here for others to read. Done some more digging on the web and realized that Freesat is on 28.2 E, so even telling the tuner in the TV to look for 19.2 E it won’t find it as my dish is pointing at 28.2E, all the channels it finds with a 19.2E search, are in fact from the 28.2E. So, solution is an additional dish to point at 19.2E, then some kind of switch between the two dishes, or even a motorised dish… Unless anyone else knows how to get F1 live, without paying over £500 pa, to Sky?
