My Satellite Setup
Mac PC - no sat as yet
My Location
Hull
My new system has arrived and I am pulling my hair out a little.

I live in Hull - can anyone tell me what incline angle the dish and the motor should be set to - currently the motor mount is set to 36 deg and the dish to 22 deg but I cannot get a signal

Is this wrong to start with ?

Thanks

Ian

Have you looked at this thread, it gives a blow by blow account of how to set up a DiseqC motor?

The elevation on the motor scale will depend on your latitude, there is normally a calculator in the motor manual, the dish scale is set by pointing the dish at the satellite you have selected for your central point, this will depend on your longitude.
