These are all programmes -- or rather, data services or MHP/
OpenTV/whatever BSkyB uses -- at 28E -- nowhere else.

Your sat dish is clearly misaligned -- you are probably
receiving your CZ/SK/Kabel Deutschland/NL correctly at
23E5, but instead of 19E2, you are receiving 28E, with
english speaking programmes for the UK -- the majority
of the 19E2 programmes are german language, with a few
french, spanish, and a handful of other languages.

Do you have a normal satellite receiver?  If so, use
that, as you move your dish slightly in one direction
(to the direction of the sunset) until you receive your
CZ stations -- although now they will be received on
the other LNB input -- and then you should be seeing
the programmes from 19E2.

As long as you are receiving FreeSat/BSkyB programmes,
there is no way that an Astra 19E2 scanfile will help.
