    I know I need to get my dish realigned because my signal strengths on 99 and 103 are low. I look at the test channels and can see some information on 480, 481, 482 and 483 (only 481 confirms BBC is working, others say Correct satellite dish setup).

    When I try to tune to 498 I get "Channel not available" at the top of the screen. Has this test channel gone away or is that due to my low signal strenghts on 99 and/or 103?

    If the signal would be too low it would give 'searching for sat...' rather then channel not available. Haven't checked it in a while so they probably pulled it.
