l live in Coventry, so hopefully will get a decent signal quality, better than my old LNB, which gave up after a few days...usually the quality would be 50% (once re-aligned) then drop to 5% after 2-3 days.
Not good with all this bad weather though... its a bit windy..
I will be ordering a 0.3 LNB, if l have no luck with the sky mini-dish and stick that on my other dish.
the problem is whether a 45cm Sky mini-dish can pick-up hotbird. However, if the mini-dish cant pick up hotbird, then I can remove the sky dish LNB and place this on my other dish (which is currently on hotbird). Hopefully the Sky LNB can fit onto my other dish, providing it holds in the circular bracket.
does anyone know what the collar size is on the Sky mini-dish? Just keeping my options open, as if it can fit onto a conventional LNB arm bracket, l can try this if l am unable to pick up hotbird with the sky mini-dish.
problem is that the end of the Sky LNB is rectangular (connects to the LNB arm) and my conventional dish (which was brought many years ago) is circular.
My other dish is 80cm, which picks up hotbird without any issues.
I will try and pickup hotbird with the 45cm sky mini-dish, if unsuccessful, place the Sky LNB onto my 80cm dish and see if that works. Problem is whether the Sky LNB will mount securely onto my old conventional dish bracket arm, as the end of the sky LNB is rectangular, whilst my 80cm dish has a circular bracket arm.
