johnp- If the dish is working ok, A standard "Eurobox" satellite receiver will pick up all available signals using a "Blind Search".
If Freesat signals are reaching your area you will need to pick "Astra2/ 28.2" satellite to scan for them.

Beryl Ash- Your TV has probabley picked up "Belmont" or "Emley Moor" during an update?
Most Panasonic TV's have a "Region Select" in their menu's, but this can be awkward to find?
You need to do a "Manual Scan" on "Waltham" using number 49 and "Nottingham" on 27.
take note of which of these signals are stronger?
Your postcode would be useful

Thomas McKay- To do it properly you need to run a 2nd cable from the Skybox and use a 2 set distributer.
There are other ways but this is the simplest

You need to use a coaxial splitter, that has 1 input and 2 or more outputs. The input is fed from the source, you aerial if you are using Freeview and all TVs have built in Freeview reception or the output from you Set Top Box (which could be Freeview, Freesat or Sky) if that is what you use. The outputs should be connected separately to each TV that you want to use.
Be careful not to amplify the signal too much if your current reception is OK, the best splitters are powered to overcome inherent losses but the amplification can cause the signal to be too strong and result in loss of programmes, etc. But if your signal is already very strong, you may (?) get away with an unpowered splitter - but they rarely come in more than 2-way splits. And a cable must be plugged into every outlet and feed into a TV set else it will not work properly (impedance matching demands that).
You don't give either a location post code nor details of the equipment you have so it is difficult to be more specific.

Recently my Freeview service has frequently failed to deliver subtitles on programmes I'm watching or taping on Channel 4 (also 13, which is 4+1). I'm hard of hearing, so dependent on subtitles. As this has never happened before I'm stymied about what if anything can be done about it. The failure is not with the broadcaster.

Hi, my brother has recently moved to northeast Italy and would like to receive some UK channels.
The apartment has a dish on the roof, although I am not sure which way it is pointing, and a cable for satellite coming from it into the apartment.
Would a UK freesat box possibly work for our standard channels like BBC / ITV etc.?
Any help would be appreciated.
