A few years ago, CNN International disappeared from the TNT service.Last week, (30/09/17) BBC WORLD disappeared when it moved to a different satellite or frequency.How can one contact TNT to ask them to re-instate those channels?

On TNT SAT receivers you have the TNT SAT and associated channels from number 1 to 42 and regional variants of France 3 from 300 to 324. These channels are automatically up-to-date.And you have the other channels stored from number 1000 onwards. These channels do not automatically update, you need to run a scan if channels change frequencies.CNN Int. and BBC World News are always on Astra 1 19.2º E. You can do a manual scan on their frequencies :

Wind blew down our dish. It was at Astra 19.2e. Have WS6906 which says dish is on 19.2e and sees many hundreds of channels, but the TNTSat receiver does not find any channels. What might I be doing wrong ?

4 years ago



Probably the antenna is pointed to another satellite. Tell me four o five channels names founded by WS6906.

4 years ago


Mistyped the device, is a 6916. S and Q is 77 and 67 respectively. 700 odd TB channels seemingly on Astra 1 1. Example channels are : Antena 3 HD on 10907/21996/V and BBC World News Europe on 11230 /21996/V or TNT on 11856 / 29700 / V or One Hd on 11053/ 21996. The TNT on 29700 is no signal. The others are fine. The Astrell receiver is looking for primary and secondary transponders as follows: P 11856, 29700, V; S 12402, 29700, V however nothing is found. There is not DiSEqC fitted as yet. Any helpMuch appreciated as we have French guests arriving tomorrow.

When Insay nothing is found I mean the group of tnt say channels. The receiver does pick up a few hundred other channels.

So the antenna is pointed to the correct satellite, Astra 19.2° East."TNT on 11856 / 29700 / V": TNT or TMC ?What are the measures of puissance (S, strength) and qualité (Q, quality) for 11856 V 29700 according to the Astrell receiver ?Do you receive channels on frequencies over 11900 MHz ?Have you try to reset the receiver to the factory default settings ?Revenir aux réglages usine• MENU / Système / Remise à zéro » PIN code » OK

4 years ago


No, TNT. The S and Q is as above 77 and 67. I have reset the receiver a number of times. Can strength/quality vary between transponders ? Do I need a bigger dish. It’s a oval dish.

4 years ago


Dish is new but LNB is not.

4 years ago


Misread your question. For the TNT channels, the S and Q on the receiver is 43 and low thirty something but not constant, it flickers. It is the higher numbers for the other channels and signal is constant. TNT Auto setup finds nothing. A global search finds the other channels.

4 years ago


"No, TNT."

TNT (channel name) is on 10979 V, not 11856 V. A symptom ?

"Can strength/quality vary between transponders ?"

Of course, each transponders signal strength and quality vary based on many factors. To generate the TNT Sat channel list, the receiver requires enough quality signal on 11856 V or 12402 V, at least on one of them.

"Do I need a bigger dish."

I don't know. Where are you ? How big is the dish ?

"Dish is new but LNB is not."

The LNB is an Universal one? Does it have a proper feed horn for that dish ? (technical question, sorry)

"For the TNT channels, the S and Q on the receiver is 43 and low thirty something but not constant, it flickers."

According to the user manual the quality signal must be over 40% (measured by the receiver) on each required transponder. Apparently your installation is not ok, poor signal (dish incorrectly mounted or aligned, wrong skew adjustment, problem with cable, connections, LNB...). I repeat this question: do you receive channels on frequencies over 11900 MHz ? 11954 H, 11973 V, 12051 V... ?You can always call a professional installer.

If you can watch Swiss channels too, you must have a Fransat decoder with two smartcard readers (one for Fransat smartcard, the other for SRG SSR smartcard) instead of a TNT Sat receiver (there are none with double smartcard reader).Do you receive RMC Story via TNT Sat, Fransat or Bis/Hotbird?

By the past, my TNTSat/ASTRA brought plenty of international channels (French + BLOOMBERG + German + Spanish +...). Then, 4 Years ago, I had to buy a new TNTcard and I only got french channels. Of couse it was my disapointment but I had else to do.By June2020, I bought a new TNTSAT6 card for my HUMAX 8000HD and I only get the poor stupid French-TV channels! It's a pity not to get any access to the stockexchange or ITV-series and good news with Russia-Today and pastime with the international chanels I was enjoying 10 Y ago. Must I change to Hotbird ?

Two ways to get all FTA channels on Astra 19.2° East with Humax TN8000HD.Try this one:

• Main Menu » Installation » Channel Search » Automatic Scan··· Select satellite: ASTRA 19.2 E··· Network Search: On··· FTA CA Select: free onlyTNT Sat - French FTV Satellite Television (6)

Another way:

• Main Menu » Installation » Channel Search » Manual ScanEt cetera

Anyway you said: "I only get the poor stupid French-TV". So why do you have a TNT Sat decoder? That's stupid.Where are you? Why not Astra 28.2° East with BBC, ITV, Channel Four, Five (all FTA)?• Freesat on Astra 28.2° EastSatellites Astra 2E/2F/2G 28.2° East

I am in France and have just purchased a Strong SRT7406 for TNTsat after the previous box died. The dish is pointed a 19.2E and I have a strong signal. The initial setup procedure fails. If I go to manual installation, the pre-programmed transponder frequencies find hundreds of channels but not the French channels advertised with the box. I have created a new satellite and manually added all of the 15 frequencies listed at the top of this page. All give a really strong signal but when I scan the satellite it installs a totally different set of channels.

which channels do you get instead of the French ones?Seems like you re getting Hotbird13 instead of Astra19

1 year ago


Maybe there is a DiSEqC 1.0 switch or a LNB monobloc (DiSEqC 1.0 built in) on your installation. If so and Astra 19.2° East is not on Position A or 1, try position B or 2 (menu of the receiver).Anyway, as rodolphe said well: which channels do you get? With a few names we could identify the satellite.
