    I recently aquired a second hand computer which was better than the one I was previously running MP on, and due to my previous problems on the old system I decided to just start afresh from a clean install rather than carry over any of the old configuration.

    I have been scanning my satellite channels, it picked them all up fine then when sifting through the 600 odd channels deleting the ones I didn't want, I accidentally deleted BBC3 from the list, this is a channel we watch almost every day. I have since done two more manual scans, and it doesn't seem to show up at all now, all other channels are fine though and I know we can definitely receive it as it is working on the sky box downstairs from the same dish.

    Could someone please supply the correct manual tuning parameters so I can add the channel myself? I've been through many websites trying all kinds of combinations and can't seem to get it to work, not even with the data listed on the BBC website. If someone has got theirs tuned in, in their channels screen click edit on the channel, then edit again on the next screen, a screenshot of that should get me up and running again :)

    Thanks very much
