peedee Anthony thanks, I have at last managed to spot it on KofS pages on the top line for each satellite. Astra 28.2 is indeed a NID of 2

28.2E Astra 2E10714.25H41U.K.DVB-SQPSK22000 5/6ASTRA, 33.8 Mbps NID:2TID:2041

OysterSatTechLtd I'm looking at Kingofsat now and there's an NID number with each frequency listed.
If you look for the frequency your currently searching for, look along the top line that lists the frequency, Polarization, FEC etc then you'll see it near the end. Also, if your system doesn't have a HD tuner then make sure the frequency your scanning for isn't DVB-S2 because it won't be able to see it anyway.

peedee Thanks that does not bother me too much as once aquisition has been made I switch off the dish power to help save my battery supply. I will try changing the IDs and see what happens. At the moment it finds 28.2 fine even with what appears to be a wrong ID. I cannot get it to lock onto 19.2 though. I will reset it this weekend and see what happens.

That is pretty much it.

peedee Neither have I, King of sat didn't throw up anything and neither have many attempts with Google search tools. One of the reason I want to find a list is to set up my Trac Vision onto other satellites and to verify the current settings. Astra 2 with a ID of 0002 does not stack up with the hexadecimal ID I have of 020 which I think came from C A Clase. I am wondering if it is in error because the decimal 0002 is 002 in hexadecimal. Do you have any idea how critical it is to have the right ID? I believe it only serves to ensure the dish is locked onto the right satellite and to stop it continually searching once aquisition has been made?

satandpcguy Network IDs:
For example Astra 1 at 19 east is 0001
Astra 2 at 28 east is 0002

But not been able to find a full list of them around

peedee Thanks once again. I tried Lyngsat without finding any. I suspect they are allocated by the ITU.

OysterSatTechLtd Look at this website:
They have all European Sats on there and all the details your looking for are listed.

Never worked on a Trac Vision but the NID (Network ID) is the Satellite identifier. Many different Satellites use the same frequency details so I assume, from what your asking, that the purpose is to tell the Trac Vision which Satellite to look at when searching that frequency.
Thanks and that makes sense but any idea where I might find a list of these?

4maddogs Glad the original poster got sorted.

After all the doom and gloom people have posted, I thought I would say that I have a Maxview dome (twin lnb) and it works perfectly and has never needed upgrading!
