I have a question regarding the skew angle of my lnb. I'm on Astra 19.2, living in East Anglia, England. There are 5 slots on my lnb to alter the angle it points into the dish.

Is there a certain position recommended for 19.2 in the East of England, or doesn't it really matter? To honest, the signal doesn't change that much when I switch between 1,2,3,4,5. Any help, or suggestions?

I think thetime old system of trial and error would be your best bet. PUT IN ONE CHECK THE SIGNAL QUALITY PUT IN TWO AND SO ON . the best siginal quality is the one you put it on

Thanks, I guess it is trial & error, but just wondered if there was a certain lnb position to set it to for Astra 19.2 to line it up with the arc of the satellite on the horizon for maximum signal & to minimize drop out in bad weather?

Any advice from installers? Anyone??
