Hi all!

I living in Reading at the moment and have a question about setting up my dish and LNB's

I see what you have is the same as what I like...

Astra 2, Astra 1 and Hotbird

Can you tell me how far your lnb's are appart from one and another?
I seem to have only the Astra 2 and Astra 1. They are 7.5 cm appart pointing the middle one to the astra 2

the 3th lnb is not yet setup.

This is what I have:

ArchSat Elliptical 75x65 cm
3x Singel LNB 0.2 Db
Dreambox 500s

Tx for your help

By the way:
I'll post some pic's later :-looky

Smart lnb, 1m Gibby dish, Stab motor, TM5200D receiver, 57east to 61west. DTT from Sudbury. Virgin Media broadband.

So called capital of Suffolk, UK.
I've just had a word with my brother Northants, I set his up as follows on an 80cm dish. !9east as main focus, 13east LNB just a fraction apart from
the 19 east LNB and slighty lower. The 28east LNB is 3 fingers width apart from the central LNB and slightly higher.

The distance between the LNBs will vary depending on the type of bracket and dish size/type.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Not only does the setup look good the grape vine looks healthy as well :)

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

On that set up, the middle LNB needs to be on Astra 1, then Hotbird to the right and Astra 2 to the left as you look at the dish from behind the LNB.
