Can you provide a picture? As a general rule, the "F" connectors are on the underside.

It could of course just be set up incorrectly.

What motor is it?

Do you have a picture?

Chances are that it is the correct way up and it just needs adjusting more.

Im a newbie myself
Yes 1 lnb is only needed with motorised system
From wht i have read and learnt first you must set the motor to 0 and then by turning the dish manually on the mount find thor 1w
then move the motor to find more sats fine tuning will result in receiving more than 1 sat

The manual for the motor is on the page you point to in your link. :)

Have you set the lattitude for your location on the motor body and what is your longitude?

Hello Spoofer.

One question: Does your receiver support USALS? If so, the setup could be much easier.
In that case do the following:
In your antenna menu, fill in coördinates of your location; choose Thor with the USALS-command. The motor will turn to the right position. Then turn dish and motor together around the pole until best signal is received; tighten the nuts of the motorbracket.
Now your receiver should find any satellite via the USALS-commands.

Call it 0.8W that is about as close as you will get and very convenient for Thor. :).

You should be able to enter 0.894 West , you certainly can on mine, then enter your lattitude underneath.

If your longitude coincides with the position of thor, you just set the motor at zero and by swinging the motor body on the mast and the dish elevation only, find Thor.
