Tandberg CSR820 and IRN

We have a Tandberg CSR820 satellite receiver which we have been using happily for the last few years to receive IRN. Over the weekend, the receiver locked-up and lost all the settings.

I found a sticker on top of it with the IRN details, however, when I put them in we get GBI Racing so I presume IRN must have moved. These are the settings on the sticker;

Frequency - 1511.00 MHz
Symbol Rate - 27.500 MS
Viterbi Rate - 5/6
Aquisn BW - 0009 MHz
Polarity - Horizontal
Satellite Band - Ku-high
LNB Voltage - On

Can anyone help me with what the settings should actually be? I have tried various satellite websites, but they list the frequency in GHz and the receiver only lets me input MHz in the format 0000.00.

Your satellite dish is pointed to Astra 4A.

IRN appears to be now on...

  • Frequency - 12303.00 MHz
  • Symbol Rate - 25.547 MS
  • Viterbi Rate - 7/8
  • Polarity - Horizontal
    ...and the service has an SID of 1273.

Interesting what else is on there: including distribution for Absolute Radio and talkSPORT, as well as the BBC's AM services, Premier Radio, and the DAB multiplexes for the BBC, Digital One, and (oddly) MuxCo Derby.
