Hi All

I am living in Germany and have my dish pointing at 28.2 to receive sky (dish is 80 cm), would it be possible with a second lnb, to receive a sighnal from the astra sat. at 19.2 so i can watch the german tv\sat ?

TIA Nick

Any ideas where i can buy the attatchment that will allow me to connect a second LNB with a 9 deg difference to the main LNB, all i find are ones going up to 6 deg.

They can be found online Nick, but many of them are the wrong way round, designed to have 28.2 as the secondary focus. I'll have a look and see if I can find one.

A friend of mine just installed just that in Germany using a 90cm Triax dish with a holder for up to 4 LNB's. Working like a gem.

Does 28.2 have to be my prime focus? I guess so as i am not in the middle of the footprint? At the moment i have a triax dish 60cm x 70cm, would i see a bigger improvment in reception for bbc and itv if i changed to a 90 cm dish? would this also help to receive the 19.2 astra sat?

The difference in reception between a 60/70cm and a 90cm is quite big, you should see a big improvement. Is it impossible to have two dishes? If not, you could probably use one of the Technisat 55cm dishes for your Astra 19.2 reception.

No Two dishes not possible, i guess i will just have to give it a go with the 88cm triax dish and see if i can pick up both sat's. Thanks for your help.
