Recently bought a channel master 1.2 mtr dish and a 1224 h-h motor.After many hours trying to set up, i finally managed to get a signal on thor, it did'nt help that the instructions gave misleading advice but once i moved away from the said instructions it finally came together. So here are some pics.

Not fully installed yet, only gone as far east as 26d and 12d west (need more time but wife keeps finding me things to do) .The hedge may be a problem the further East i go, but could get 42e with my old setup, also could get a couple of sats further west of hispasat before. Location Manchester area.

Nice set up. It would be worth you getting the correct feed horn for your dish. It will improve the weaker sats.(not saying that that is your main problem)

I would say the hedge shouldn't be a problem;)

Hi,
took advice and bought the CM feedhorn and a invacom lnb, results were not brilliant but a definate improvement.Heres a few pics, notice the break on the plastic lnb holder? i decided to squirt a little wd40 on the rusty screws and i heard a pop about 30 seconds later, so dont ever do that.lucky for me a new one came with the feedhorn. I have a question, why does the top of the plastic lnb holder have a sort of bridge across the arch? it stops the spacer from sitting properly if you can understand, can you notice it on the picture?
