hello
setting up a motorised system for a neighbour.
done a few recently always using TM5500dapci
and jeager 99 motor,and 1 metre dish.
normally after setting elevation on mount and
south setting,most of the sats fall into line.
i¨ve got sats astra 2,astra 1,hotbird and hispasat.
all with maximum signal (on sat metre).
tried flexing dish up/down on the extreme sats
to make sure i have the correct south setting on polar mount,
also done the same for astra1 and hotbird,i have max signal
and good picture.
but when i go to nilesat(mbc2) i nomally get a signal of 49
(sat meter) with good picture.atm i can only get signal of 42
and no picture.i try to flex the dish up/down and left/right,
but can¨t seem to improve the signal.
re-checked the obvious,vertical pole also lnb skew.
any ideas please, i¨m going to give it another go tomorrow night.
forgot to mention,i¨m living in tenerife and can normally pick up
nilesat no problem even on a 80cm dish.

It's still receivable here in the UK. Just done a scan, 77 channels, down from 80+.
