    Out having a wee test on a lovely evening


    So what am I doing .....


    I have left the sat dish where it is and testing if the h2s will power the motor and lnb
    And so far is all good
    Just doing a automatic scan on different lnbs that I have

    Red rocket lnb - big thumbs up channels are scan. Tested on 19
    Big red lnb - works just the same as the rocket. Tested on 13. The motor never never for some reason


    Great news. I happy with that
    So there is no reason why I can pick something up

    Just need to line everything up right

    I have some what moved on today

    I got a pole today

    I was just passing a place in Belfast and called to see if they had and cheap spares gong for free, yea they had
    Got a 4 foot job for free happy enough with that

    So most of to day has been messing about in the sun with my dish


    I did have 19 23 and 28
    Working great

    Then I lost it all. So I have wired up now to my main box in the living room
    And I don’t think the h7 is moving the dish

    So brought in my h2s power supply for it
    See how it goes

    H7 is now moving the dish

    Also noticed my pole isn’t total straight


    Right postitioner setup
    What can I do with this. How does it work
    In fine movements I can move the sat to make the signal better
    But no idea what it is doing or does it effect the main setup

    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

    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
