The analog service has been replaced by "Das Vierte". Die digital service (ZDF Vision bouquet) has changed frequency and now shares a channel with XXP and is only available until 8pm.
It's no big loss anyway. Das Vierte broadcasts shows like "Quincy", "Knight Rider" and "Simon and Simon" all in German language plus older Hollywood movies in the evening. I just checked at this moment "The Duke" is on. Never seen this movie before but much better than Leno anyway!

Dear logos0999.

i know das vierte is on.. i can see it. so.. leno is gone for good off this satellite? i do not understand all this other info you have given me.. can u explain please?

i know it has to do with the tuning, etc.. is this the NEW way to find CNBC.. ?

if i buy a new receiver.. will i get my old programs back?

i would call a shop but everything is closed now, and it sounds like you know as much or more than they do anyway.

thanks.

Leno is gone for good with your reception equipment, if you see "Das Vierte" now, where CNBC used to be.

>will i get my old programs back?
If you buy a new reciever and most likely a new outdoor reception unit (LNB), you will get all your old programs back and recieve a number of addiional channels.

The new receiver should cost you about 100€, the LNB about 15€. If your dish is shared with other people it will get more expensive. You can buy a new receiver first, see if it works and if it doesn't buy a new lnb.
