Hi Everyone. I'ma very happy person tonight because a Prague based techie guy has restored me perfect quality BBC TV ,including HD, plus ITV, and C4, and all radio. Obviously he's a pro, and I'm a non techie, but I was very surprised given what I'd read here. He did three things; two were cone ted with what he said was bad set up of my 2.1m dish in the first place
- he moved the dish away from interference from a fence and lamppost
- he adjust the position of the three struts on the out-facing side of the dish (he said its really important to get their position exactly right, and mine were not
- he replaced the LNB.
he says that the footprint (sidelobe?) seems to extend about 80kms west of Prague and about 50kms east with a 2.1m dish properly set up.
if anyone wants his contact, let me know. Very reasonable prices, speaks excellent English. Also does security cameras and telco related stuff.
By the way I also posted this on Digital Spy, where in the past I got lots of helpful advice. I got a mail back saying I'd been banned for day because my post was deemed "advertising". I wrote back and pointed out that advertising usually requires the name of the product or service to be prominent... seems like that forum is dead since The Hearst Corporation took over. Anyway hope I didn't offend anyone here. I posted because it seemed like in this location we had lost FTA BBC even with a big dish, but it seems not. Just needs some precision, hope I've described it, without having the faintest idea what I'm talking about :-)
