    Cannot tune into Freesports on Satellite

    I have been recording a series of motor races off Freesports this year using my satellite tuner.
    This channel is not broadcast from my local transmitter on Freeview. (Brierley Hill UK)
    Up until about a 1 or 2 weeks ago it worked just fine, but now I do not have a signal!!
    I have tried tuning the tuner card to the built in sat tuner file Astra 2E but it does not find the channel.
    I have a Samsung TV with a Sat tuner, so I tried to tune in all the Sat channel (687) but I could not find Freesports in the guide.
    I switch the tuner to FreeSat and re-tuned and it found the channel on 252 very quickly...
    Why can't NPVR find this channel.
    Do I need a new tuner file just for UK FreeSat to be able to find it or has the existing file got a missing frequency for this channel.

    Ammended:
    I just looked in King of Sat and found this Station has moved to;
    Astra 2E (28.2E), 2019-08-21
    FreeSports HD switched to DVB-S2 at 11426.00MHz, pol.V SR:29500 FEC:8/9 PID:2313[MPEG-4] /2314 English.
    The 0282.ini file does not include info for this the only two are as follows
    37=11426,H,27500,23,DVB-S,QPSK
    38=11426,V,27500,23,DVB-S,QPSK
    if I want to add 37A=11426,?,29500,??,???-?,QPSK
    what do I replace the ? with
    Help please
    Many thanks

    Hi Martin
    I had a good look but could not see a download button for the .ini file.
    I will take another closer look at the web page and see if I can find one.
    Thanks

    I know I had to hunt for it before, I agree it is not obvious.

    Almost as though he want no one to use it Even though I use it quite often it's quite elusive.

    (search for .ini it's in a header)

    Hi Martin
    Thanks for that I found it under .ini header hidden as a 3.5" Floppy Disc icon
    Dropped it into DVB-S folder and re-tuned the devices, found the missing programs and updated a number of HD channels.
    Bookmarked this page, I'm sure it will come in useful in the future.
    Thanks for your help
