I just got my dreambox 500s, i'm using a normal sky dish. when i start it up i'm getting astra 19.2e satellite.. am i right in thinking that i should also be getting 28.2e from this dish? or do i have to add the satellite some how?

you need to move your dish more to the east, you are pointing at the wrong sat.

yes that is the problem, your fixed dish is on the wrong satellite, and you should not be using asky dish to pick up channels, you can but it's too small, you need something bigger.

Any other info needed?

mastermo21 which free channels can you view from the dish 19.2 or 28.5 ?
Did you set up the dm500 ? Some of the transponders are the same on these satellites and will show as the wrong one, so before you move that dish be sure you are on the satellite you want.
