Can ayone help me...I have just installed an IRTE OMNIVIEW motor with a 90cm dish and a camebridge universal LNB but I am having a few problems with receiving the following frequencies from 30W on a digital fta receiver:

11579 H
11615 H
11731 H
11931 H
11931 V
12012 V
12092 V
12149 H
12456 V
12547 V

I can recieve chanels on all the other frequencies but the sigal is 41% maximum and the picture often breaks up. I have tried tweaking the position of the dish without any luck..PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!:D

(see http://www.irte.it/consumersat/consumersat.htm for motor info)

Sounds like the motor is out of alignment. Are the other frequencies, the ones you can see, all lower?

hi rolfw, the frrequencies that I can recieve are:
11682 v
11811 v
I should also have said before that all the frequencies stored in the sat receiver are the ones containing the FTA channels from the AnalogueSat website.

thanks, lasharratt

I find 11535V-24500 (multicanal) channels extremely difficult - it has to be absolutely spot on to get picture.

Make sure that the LNB skew in particular is right.

I have rotated the LNB and I have received a signal from some of the other frequencies, however the signal is quite poor and I still cannot get any signal from some of them. The strongest signal is 11811v at 91%, but others such as 11615 are 30%. Does anyone know whet the problem might be?

Sometimes the motor can be inaccurate: it sometimes moves a few degrease to the left / right of the satellite position and needs tweaking a bit. This may be because it is quite an old system, or there may be something else wrong...is this likely to affect the signal even when I tweak the position to get the best signal? The motor is an IRTE Omniview

I would appreciate help from anyone....thanks....lasharratt

My very first post.

I re-tuned Hispasat yesterday on a very rusty 70 cm $KY analogue dish in Buckinghamshire. I get 43 - 85% SQ on most of the TPs you list. I agree with RolfW, skew is particularly important with Hispasat. I have had one or two TPs on a 43 cm $ky mini dish which had very limited skew adjustment facilities, but decided that the dish was better employed on 19E.

I couldn't get a lock on 11615 H ( the HOT one!) after tweaking on the strong TPs so I tweaked on 11615 H until I got 46% SQ and finished up with around 25 deg. clockwise skew from behind; which seems about right. I recall that I could get a much higher SQ on that TP using some outlandish skew but little SQ on anything else.

I hope the weather stays fine!

Most of the major FTA channels on Hispasat are actually available on 19E.

Be adventurous with the skew.
