    Hi,

    If would like someone to confirm they can receive CNN & euro news over freesat (DVB-S) in the UK.



    I can't (picture freezes) so before going any further just want to confirm that no one else has the problem.

    Many Thanks in advance.

    Ian.

    Looking into this further - it seems to be broadcasting on a 4:3 format & not 16:9;

    FYI - I'm also using PDVD8

    Many Thanks,

    Ian.

    CNN certainly used to work fine for me. I haven't tried it for ages so I can't promise it's working now. I'll try it this evening and let you know.

    I left CNN on for half an hour last night with no problems. Here's my tuning setup for it if it helps.

    Rob

    EDIT: You're correct it is in 4:3 format (or at least it was when I tested it, about 7pm).

    I recall that CNN and Euronews both transmit with mono audio instead of the usual stereo. I beleive that this has caused problems in the past
