Hi,

I have a motorised dish and can pick up Hotbird, Astra no problem, but im having problems picking up / tunning in digitalb into my system. This is what is happening.

1) I click on to Eutesat W2 16o East and the sat moves to this position fine. Note : The signal strength is high 88pc, Quality is low 20 pc.

2) When I proceed to scan for channels the only channel it picks up are some free to air SKY Italia channels advertising movies n stuff - SKy Prima, FX, Prima Fila 1-12 ect. There's no sign of ditalb following a scan.


3) ive checked the frequncies ect and I seem to be scanning the corect freqs I think .


4) Im using a Technomate reciver (TM7755 2ca) with Dragon gam.
I haveunt updated the rceiver firmware in ages, but dragin cam is running latest pred patch.


I would appreciate any thoughts or advice on this matter as im desperate to get my Sat set up for the forthcoming premiership season.


Thanks in Advance for any help / advice you can Share - Mat S

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Welcome to the forum Mathewbet1
16 East can be a tricky bird at the best of times and just because you can pick up Hotbird and Astra1 means nothing. They boom out in comparison, you do not mention what size your dish is either but whatever size it is I suspect some fine tuning is required

Nudge it a tad Eastward, if you are scanning and picking up Sky italia channels, then you are not spot on 16e, you are still picking up Hotbird.

Thanks for the responce Topper. I have a 0.9 meter dish. When you say fine tunning, can you give some 'baby steps' to what I should be doing with my dish and or reciver to fine tune my system for 16 East. As mentioned signal quality seems to be low. Thanks for any help you can give me.

As Rolf has already said you need to nudge it a tad Eastwards. Sky Italia is not on 16 East but 13 East, as I said they are powerful birds either side and I suspect you are midway between 16E and 13E

Im still having problems picking up Eutel W2, im scanning for digitalb (11092, sym ratte 3200). Ive tried fine tunning the positions further east , as i have been told the the neighbouring birds are very strong compared to the realivly weak eutel signal. But Im not getting anywhere.....


Ive even pushed the sat as far as 25 east, and i still seem to pick up only these SKY italia )Fila channels very strange.......what could be happening.


Am i scanning wrong or doing somthing really stupid/////




PLease help............ANYONE:-worship

Hi guys ive cracked it. For anyone eles who has this problem hes's how to solve it.

(The main reason for tunning in to this satellie for many is that digitalb will be showing live premiership games on saturdays)


Youve simply got to 'fine tune' the position of the dish. I have a techomate reciever and I found the option deep within the menu as follows:

First make sure your on 16 E Eutel to start with (youll probably have high sinal strength and low signal quality - at the moment your not quite locked on)

Goto Autosearch.....scroll down to DIQEqc Motor setting click ok on DISEQ12...../
this will bring you to the fine tunning menu where you can 'nudge' the satellite either east or west untill you see your signal quality jump up, when it does your on Eutel YIPPPE. I used move fine in small increments this moves the sat very small fraction at a time.



once your loocked onto eutel you will see th signal quality jump from around 10 pc to 40 pc.


Hope this helps someone whos looking for this hard to lock sat.................
