Is this the best money I have ever spent?

I've invested in a Satlook Micro+ meter to help try & work out why I'm missing so many channels with my TM1500CI. After about 20 minutes the problem is well & truely understood.................... dish alignment!

My dish must be aligned I thought because it goes from 13E to 28.2 with no probs (or so I thought). In actual fact I've been picking up 19.2 not 28.2 so all further calculations were miles away. I have such a weak signal on both satellites its a wonder I managed to find any channels at all!

All this was worked out not at the top of a ladder, but in my lounge with the coax plugged directly into the meter. If you're having trouble with your system, just lie to the wife when she asks how much it cost :-rofl2

how did you set the dish up by usals as you cant miss doing it that way or diseqc 1.2 ?

1west should be good for you to setup on

so you'd recommend the meter as thats the one i was looking at when i can afford it, does it do the NIT search as said in the description on websites

whats the analsyer function on it ? also does it have arabsat 26e in the satelite list as people say on alsat that it doesn't detect 26e which is strange

My system was all set up & working & things went wrong when I bought a bigger dish. As for not been able to miss using usals.... don't believe that m8!

Don't ask me too many questions about the functions cos it only arrived today. Myersat are the cheapest but certainly not the fastest!
