I was re ligning my dish today. With true south etc. At the moment I am getting astra 19 now. clearly at quality level 75%. If i check the signals for the other sats i get 75% for arabsat 26 e and the same for nilesat 7 w. But when i go on these I can not get the fta channels even if my receiver is patched probellar need a cam i think. I get a signal for hotbird around 50% but not stable.
Any ideas guys as what i should do?

Is your dish moveing? I really cannot believe those quality levels on Arabsat & Nilesat. Loads of people in the UK struggle to get any kind of reception from those two.

Even I find it weird, how does it pick up the signals for 3 sateilites in one postion. i can only view the channles on astra 19 out of the 3.

Your not getting 3 satellites - various birds in different slots use the same frequencies. Rescan on of the "odd" ones and you will get the channels on 19E on it :D

yes u are right mate.
I can get atra 19 e. if i move the dish slightly i should be able to get 13 e hotbird but i can not.
does that mean my alignment is totally crap.?

Analoguesat beat me to it:D
Have you saved any satellites in the satellite set up box?
Have you put your latitude and longitude into the receiver, that is if you are useing usals?
Why are you trying to find channels on the two weakest birds before you check out the rest of the satellites in the arc?
Have you received and saved any channels from any of the satellites other than 19east?
If you do not m,ove the dish you will not be able to pick up any other satellites.
Have you read and understood the motor and receiver handbook?
Off to make a pot off tea to calm down:-doh!
