Sounds like a 1.2m dish to me.
Push and pull on the bottom of the dish while watching screen/meter to check if you need to reset it.View attachment 123536
This is Freesat 106 BBC hd.
Here are most of the channels I don't get yet.

Also, when setting the dish up the elevation had me stumped for a while. I think the scale does not take into account the offset elevation of the dish. I think for this dish it is 25 degrees but I am not certain. So after finding that out I still need to check elevation again.
I will post pics after things are final. I'm hoping to find tune today. In the guide I also think that there are some channel numbers not showing in the list.
Can anyone comment on my ideas on how to fine tune?
That is what I assumed to tweak a weak signal then all the others should improve too. I will try that.Edit: Don't forget to tweak LNB-distance, so sliding the LNB more towards and from the dish. That could also help.
And tweak on a weak transponder. It is the weakest transponders that you want to improve, and hopefully by doing this you get also a few not-yet-received transponders.
So, for the calculation:- do the string test to find out whether the shape is perfect;
- measure dimensions and calculate offset angle and position of Focal point;
- make sure LNB-holder holds LNB in such a way that it's Phase center is co-located with antenna's Focal point;
I'm a long way from you but just as a matter of interest I see no signal at all on the ITVHD transponders. Don't waste too much effort on them.Thanks for the response. I won't drill any more holes. I will follow instructions.
On a side note I just turned on TV to go do some tweaking and it seems some channels are now coming in so maybe a transponder update happened in the box. ITV hd for one still has no picture.
