Greetings,

Will be putting up a dish tomorrow for these birds and I was curious whether I should point to the weaker sat and offset the other or should I point at 20* and offset both? Location of signal reception will be from Krakow, Poland.

Also, i want to drop only 4 cables down to my 5/16 switch as opposed to 8 cables, which switch would it be best to use in order to join 2 lnbs to only 4 cables?

Krakow is a gorgeous city.

Which 28E channels are you wanting - if its just the Europe beam stuff then they should be pretty strong there. The BBC / ITV spotbeam stuff is probably not possible on a 1.6m.

Hotnird should be a decent signal strength.
