- My Satellite Setup
- My Location
1.@sonnetpeteThen I pointed the dish using a central LNB to 7E (Eutelsat W3A)
Is it easy to adjust 13E and 5E instead of 13E and 1W?
So, you did have signal and picture of 7E?
Did you use the original LNB-holder for that, or the multifeedholder (as I suggested)?
If you used the original LNB-holder, did you compare angle and hight of original LNB-holder with that of the multifeedholder?
Can you also make a picture from the side, as I mentioned earlier?
Well, 1W is a bit more to the sidethan 5E, so the dish will give a bit less signal there; but I don't think there will be much difference.
So I would stick to the original plan, first.
Though the elevation difference between the satellites isn't big, I would use washers absolutely, to make the 3 degree angle! That will improve reception, what the shop person said is not very accurate .
Did you slide the blue (13E) LNB futher from center, and check signal with your satellite beeper? You should find satellites there, and if you have still all the channels of 13E stored in you receiver you can check if you are on the wanted satellite.
If it is not 13E, slide further; or scan this found satellite and check which one it is at KingOfSat or Lyngsat (e.g.); and determine about how much further you have to slide.
Once you found 13E, from the distance middle (7E) to 13E LNB, you can determine what the about distance for 7E to 1W must be.
Edit: O no, you have the channels of 1W stored in your receiver, I guess.
In that case I'd try to find the 1W satellite first, with the procedure I wrote above; with the grey LNB of course.
When the compass in your phone is calibrated correctly, 13E might be tricky with that tree! Hope it is not in the way.....
