Or in other words: Its Useless.
Aye, I knew it didnt point at Astra, but Marco Polo, but thought that if there were still the odd channels in Analogue on Astra, there might be summit still on Marco Polo, but it seems not....
I think it used D2Mac as its broadcast frequency, I remember seeing the demo of it in Rumbelows or Radio Rentals, it had On Screen Programme info...way ahead of Sky at the time
