Had another look just now, stronger signal today on Blue Nile Channel, around 5.9dB, also getting a lock on a data signal on 12676V but with a negative dB figure! Didn't know that was even possible! 30.5E.jpg

dB is just a ratio, 0 dB meaning ratio 1 : 1.
For DVB-S2 QPSK 1/4, -2.35 dB is enough already for lock!

In below scan, there is something at 12713 V as well with 4.1 dB, can't lock it yet.

It must be like a knife edge to line it up ;-)
Yes its a bit of messing about, when 30.8 comes in line I get a bit of bleed over for about half hour, I can slightly pull E away from it and remain a picture on 30.5, that's something I haven't been able to do with my smaller dishes.

I thought as the dish gets bigger, the beamwith got smaller.:confused
