Hello one and all,

Just a quick query regarding receiving Astra 19.2 and Hotbird 13 on my Comag SL55 box.
I have an 80cm dish (the Lidl kit - you probably know the one I mean) so will a standard two 'block' LNB attached to it pick up both satellites? I am currently pointing at Astra 19.2 so will I have to move the dish at all?

I'd be very appreciative if someone could reply.

Regards,
mrtomato.

Yes it will if the receiver has disecq switching, and its called a monoblock lnb (2 heads set 6 degrees apart.)
Put the prime focus of the dish onto Hotbird, and set the secondary up on 19E.
