I was chatting to the bloke who is setting up my system next week and i think i may have a problem,
I am installing an 80cm dish with twin LNBs and i did want to get Hotbird 13deg East and Eutelsat 16deg East but i have been told that with an 80cm dish the min sweep between the two is 6deg not 3 deg.
Is there anyway round this ie moulded LNBs etc as i cannot put up a motorised dish as this will upset the neighbours even more.
The reason i want Eutelsat is because i have been told that it is the only Satellite showing Premiership football this season.
Thanks Robo

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.

I understand 6 deg is the normal monobloc spread, but where your advice has come from I am not sure regarding Eutelsat I do not know. There appears to be still a lot of uncertainty as to who will be showing what in the next season. So I suspect that you may be talking about a div 1 uplink on Eutelsat 16deg E

Yes and if you click the forum link that takes you throught to Alsat!!!... I have so little interest in football I will let someone else jump in with their thoughts on this obviously incorrect statement. There are other bouquets showing prem footy and of course S*y is one of them

I would beware of any installer who says you can only get Premiership football on Eutelsat 16deg East as that is wrong information.

Also you would struggle to get a stable signal in bad weather on Eutelsat 16deg East with a monobloc and a 80cm dish. And there are very few receivers that can get Premiership football on Eutelsat 16deg East.

I would not trust your installer - ask here for reliable advice.

So if i settle for Hotbird and Astra what do you think the chances of finding the football?

No guarantees with this hobby - The Art cards advertised at the top of this forum have worked in the past. but there has been some doubt this year - do 'search' at the top for more information.

Last year (on Hotbird) the situation changed regularly - so don't invite all your mates round for the game unless you're sure you have it covered.
