Hi,

I had my motorized system installed 4 years ago and it worked perfectly. It's connected to a Technomate and uses USALS. However, successive winters have seen the dish move out of line. I mostly watch 39E, and can still get this sat by telling my TM to go to 49E (10 degrees out!!). Would be great if someone could come and tweak this, and reset my TM so all the sats are where they should be.

Best wishes

Kristian

Satelliteman may be your best bet mate. Hes a good installer and his work is bang on. He also charges reasonable rates :D

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Some pictures would be useful as well Kristian, but your profile suggests it's one of those invisible dishes so you might need a good camera.

Thanks for the replies. Does this picture help?

Is Satelliteman's name Paul? The original installer was from this site; a man called Paul from Northamptonshire. He did a great job, but I've since lost his details.
