Motorised Dish and Topfield TF7700HSCI

Hi, I apologies if this isn't in the right group.

We have just bought and had installed a motorised 80cm dish, and Topfield TF7700 HSCI box. We live in Essex, in the UK

The engineer installed 2 satellites. Hotbird, & Eutelsat W2. We want to add Eurobird 3, on 33e to watch fox turk for the football.

The problem I have is that I don't know how to do it, and being a satellite novice, can't work out what to do to do it.

Can anyone help me in layman's terms please.

Thanks.

Chances are you will be disappointed - an 80cm dish is really a bit too small for reliable reception of Fox Turk 33E in the UK

Even folks with 90 cm dishes are struggling when the weather closes in.

AS is correct. I'm just a little north of you with a 1m dish, first signs of rain and 33east is a dead duck. A 1.2m might be ok though.

Sorry, I'll have to retract my post above, this TM100 that I have been given is playing up. MY TM4100 and my Clarke-tech1500 showing good strong signal despite the rain.
Once again apologies.
