An FEC of 1/2 should be much easier to get .... That means half of the signal is error correction.
It gets harder as the fraction gets larger. For example, ABC network feeds on C-band have an FEC of 9/10, which is why you get nothing, nudge the dish slightly and suddenly it's booming in. Much less margin for error on a signal like that.
NHK World (55W) has a similar generous error correction of 1/2 and as a result is easy to receive on under size dishes.
Usually when the programming is Belgian it has "een" written in the top corner ("one" in dutch, for VRT-1). I've seen stuff in French there too occasionally, and always with dutch subtitles in that case
The website seems a little confusing, or confused... At the top is a table showing the change they made earlier in the year, followed by the deadline for dropping the old parameters, then down the page out of nowhere they start talking about the 12040 frequency.
BVN is compiled from the Dutch and Belgian public broadcasters: NOS and VRT. It's a similar set up to 3sat, which isn't available here but is a mixture of public TV from Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
It's also a great place to watch the Eurovision Song Contest, or Eurovisie Songfestival as they would say.
