I'll shortly be turning off my Sky+ and getting a Freeview PVR; however I have an analogue receiver to use the Sky minidish to get Eurosport. Will it be as straightforward as moving the dish through 9 degrees or does the vertical position change as well. Will I need a meter to help me or is it really very simple? I live in SE London.

If you connect it to the analogue receiver and set it to the correct frequency and polarity for Eurosport, then it is a short movement to the West and a slight rise in elevation. If you can set up a portable TV that can be seen when you are doing the adjustment, it really is quite easy. :)

Thanks, that saves me from asking the embarrassing question of whether 19.2E means 19.2 East of South (correct?) or 19.2 south of due East (wrong)!
