    I can get BBC 1 on some of the regional channels.
    Etc I can get 954 but not 953. 950 and 951 are ok but not 952 (which is the east mids channel)

    At least I can get BBC 1 for now...

    I have an old Foxsat HDR box do you reckon it might be worth trying that out?

    Some BBC 1 SD channels are horizontally polarised and some vertically.

    You lose nothing by trying it.

    Update: Tried another box and had the same issue. So replaced LNB today. Fixed.
    Thanks for the advice Martin.

    Thanks for coming back and reporting the outcome; excellent news.

    Thanks for the advice Martin.

    I am always nervous about giving advice about satellite reception issues as I have never owned a satellite receiver but really glad it worked out well.
