Can't get Eutelsat w2 - 01-April-2009, 04:05

I have a Dreambox 600 with Pli image, diseqc 1.2, OAS flat dish (gain 34.2 dbi) with single lnb 10.7-12.75. Located in Netherlands.
I have around 80/100 reception for both Hotbird (13e) and Astra(19.2e), however the one in between, Eutelsat w2 shows snr at 65 and not a single transponder/service is possible to be locked/synced.
Is there anything I could do or is it really due to small dish (equivalent to 70cm)?

in the uk, you would need a 1m or + dish size for eutelsat w2
in netherlands too, for w2, you would need atleast 1m
here is a reference you can use for dish size and satellite in in benelux (keep in mind, other factors such as exact location, lnb quality and weather will play a role too, but if you have the indicated dish size, you have a good chance that you are definately get a good signal on that satellite)

Thank you hamster08 for the reply and nice chart.

Added:
However according to the chart above I shouldn't have problems with Sirius & Atlantic Bird at 5E & 5W respectively.
Yet the same; no single transponder/service can be found.

I had no signal on many satellites but i did a trick(120cm dish).

-I installed Satfinder(you can get it for basically any image)
-I went to Predefined Transponder and i tried many transponders until one of them had some signal
-I pressed OK and the "Lock" box was checked
-After that i procedeed to scan the satellite and the channels appeared
