Dish slightly out of alignment ! - 19-December-2012, 14:09

Hi,

I think the wind may have slightly blown my dish out of alignment.

If I go to Positioner setup I can adjust signal strength from 50% to 90% with a few clicks East on 'fine movement'. This fixes picture stability but, of course, it resets every time I change satellite.

Is there a lazy way to permanently lock the "fine movement" adjustment without getting on the roof and resetting the dish? I've tried fiddling with the Positioner Location (North / West) settings but I'm not sure if that throws everything out of sync when you move satellites (?).

DM800HD / 80cm TM dish+motor

thanks

Once you save the positioner location (using fine movement) in theory it should stay in your box even if you move satellites, but sometimes it doesn't for some reason.

Before going up on the roof try a new channel list. Load the list after you have fine tuned the position on the satellite you want.

you have to fix the dish only if you use the usals system for locating the sats

if you are using stored positions then there is no point fixing the dish

dish alignment is needed only when the signal is bad for sats either at the west or the east limit (or for every sat) which cannot be adjusted using the step east step west function.

put on your coat, get out your ladders and go fix the dish. Take a spanner with you and tighten your nuts up. :) so it won`t move in future.

Well, I've moved my "position" setting from -2.33 (Manchester) to -2.45 (Isle of Mann), and it seems to pick up clearly now from 28E to 30W... I'm going to stick with that for now.
