If have a reason to believe that my 80cm solid dish is not properly aligned.

My dish is motorised by a Moteck SG2100 and this is powered by a Technomate TM1000D Super.

If I head over to 33e (eu bird) using USALS, Fox Turk breaks up really badly (unwatchable). If I then use the fine tweak feature on Disecqu 1.2 and move two places to the west it doesn't break up.

The same happens on 16east.

Now, it was recently setup on a meter at 1west and everything was working fine. 16east & 33e + 42e were all fine.

Now I have lost some channels on 42east and 16/33e both need manually adjusting.

The pole is spot on level (thats it's mounted on) so I can't see where it has gone wrong? With it being slightly off, where is it best to realign it? 1west or 33e?

Thanks.

Don't use USALS, use DiseqC 1.2 and save each satellite separately, then they should be fine.

yes you will need to switch to diseqc 1.2 as the fine tune on usals doesn't save it as it works rather on your location coordinates to find the satellite
