    Epg has got well slow with just downloading from plugins

    As I’m using the sky dish, what angel should I set the dish itself too. Or just set it so it’s flat with the mount

    No mate, that will be a project for next year now I think. I haven't got any spare time at the minute.
    I've already got 2 dishes on the house with multi-lnb's so will have to be a pole at the bottom of the garden.

    If your elevation is to high you will only
    Get the west satellites If its to low you
    Will only get east satellites There is also the correction angle which is + - 1
    Degree You might have to adjust the elevation off the motor slightily to let
    The dish track across the ark When the dish moves to thor 0.8 west if i can remember my elevation was 28

    Regarding the epg I don't bother with downloading the foreign sats as they self populate once you go on them. I use vhannibal and an edited version for my spare box for 19 + 28.2 only

    The wee dish isn’t making it easy
    Might need to upgrade

    Everything needs to be botched to work

    80cm dish tk set 13mm anchor bolts
    2 inch u bolts might be the way forward
    More stability

    Ordered a 100cm or amazon
    I got a £100 voucher from EE when I signed up last month

    So that will cover it and maybe a new motor

    Turns out I have been pointing my dish and motor to high

    I had it set to 54 as I read some where you set it to your lat
    But that looked to high so I moved it down

    But seems it meant to be in the mid 30 if I remember right

    You go by the latitude scale so if its 54
    Your polar elevation should be 35.4
    Declination offset 7.0 ignor the elevation scale on the motor

    So how do you know the scale

    this motor came with nothing and I’m not sure what the sky dish is in

    New motor and dish should be here soon enough
    They better have paper work
