Hi BrianRichard, how is your 1.2 doing at the moment, knowing we are having problems with 1.4 and even my 1.6 in my area?
All this changing LNBs is just chasing the rainbow. I don't understand why the dish is performing so bad. Have you focused it properly.Not much of 2e during the day at the moment (9pm) it seems ok, itv2, film4 clear as a bell..bbc1 (10818) ok but low a bit of break up..(2e was good in feb and march)
WOW ***!!!.............I´m going to get one for my dish!
Because it is a 1.2 dishAll this changing LNBs is just chasing the rainbow. I don't understand why the dish is performing so bad. Have you focused it properly.
Thanks for all the replies.
Until I read these I thought the BU ruled. If you are going to get one (GI quad).......guess that voice of experience should suffice for us lesser peeps. Seriously, appreciate the comments as here and as you know , we are on a definite 'fringe' reception area.
¿Again BP, from your experience in this area, will a well installed 1.4m do the job?
Enjoy your night all.
My location states, Totana, Murcia, and i live about 3 miles from Totana, Lorca is about 7 miles south of me and my dish is one of those tecatel 1.2 dish (well 1.37 * 1.23) but officially a 1.2@richard, the thing is you and Lovelyperson have province names as your location. So it's confusing. Do you live in the city or the province. If you are as far south as Lorca I can understand a 1.4m offset not working too well.
Because it is a 1.2 dish
Yesterday you said in the western european thread (i think it was)
Where you are you can get away with a 1.1m dish, 50kms south you need a 1.4 and a further 50miles south you need a 1.8
I think i might be a bit further than 100 miles south of you so i think the dish is performing quite well and to it's max.. In Feb/March i was getting all the main transponders 24/7 but not bbc1hd on 2e
I wouldn't mind an upgrade to a 1.5 and have searched the classifieds as i thought there
might be a few people getting rid of theirs cheaply if they had upgraded to a larger dish but can't find one anywhere
I myself, either home at San Juan, Alicante or Villamartin but the peeps with the ¿¿¿???'s are as I said and within 300 metres of the Policia Local office/Carrefour in Torrevieja. on the Crevillente road.@lovelyperson where are you exactly. What town?
Thanks for the response......will see them over the weekens so will advise of your comments.@lovelyperson, ..... 1.4m offset dishes with a BU Single LNB work fine..........
Yes but if you are in San Juan just get one from me.Thanks for the response......will see them over the weekens so will advise of your comments.
Re: the BU LNB.........normally obtain from Malaga....they are showing this (foto)
¿Is this the one in question?
Enjoy your day.
Any more info on the GI Quad, website etc... as this lnb is not one I am familiar with , also where would I get one from ? None of my usual sources seem to sell them.I know it goes against the grain and I would not normally say this, but the GI twin and GI quad out perform the BU versions. I know this on having worked on a few dishes in the area. Today I swapped two BU twins for GI on dishes I have installed in the last 6 months and got much better c/n and lower error rate. Also tried to replace a GI quad with a BU on a dish that was having problems and the BU was worse than the GI by a country mile. The single is the best, but the multi´s seems to have problems. For a twin go for GI or Best, for the quad the GI is the best I have found to date.
I´m going to get one for my dish!
