Advice 1: How to align your satellite dish by yourself

Satellite TV is increasingly part of the lives of Russians, a satellite dish on the roof or the wall of the house has long been no surprise. In most cases, the installation and configuration of the set of satellite equipment is done by the master who sold his firm. But it is quite possible to do yourself.
Instruction
1
Before installation it is necessary to know the exact coordinates of the satellite, you can find them on the Internet. If you set up the equipment for signal reception "Tricolor TV" - one of the leading operators of satellite television antenna installation has to focus just to the South.
2
Attach the antenna, connect the cable with F-connectors LNB and the receiver. Connect the receiver and TV with the enclosed cables. Switch the TV to receive signal from the receiver. Click on the remote of the receiver (there is the option for "Tricolor TV") the red button. On the screen should appear a window with two scales of the signal level and its quality. While the antenna is not aimed at the satellite scale are empty. If the window does not appear and the screen is blank, check the proper connection of all cables.
3
If the window appears, proceed to configure the antenna. If you can't adjust the antenna and see the TV screen, you will need a helper. To communicate with him by cell phone. You'll be able to tune the antenna, the assistant to observe the scales of the strength and quality of signal.
4
For settings on "Tricolor TV" you need to Orient the antenna at a point that is six degrees to the left of the South – if you are standing to face him. But in order to catch the satellite, first turn the antenna about three degrees to the left direction to the South. Lower the plate down, then slowly start to raise it. If you receive a signal, the assistant should immediately report it.
5
If you catch the satellite signal has failed, again, lower the bowl, turn it even one degree to the left and start to slowly raise and repeat. Experience shows that to catch the satellite usually requires no more than ten minutes.
6
As soon as there was a signal, tighten the antenna mount. Now your task is to carefully tuning the antenna to achieve a signal level not less than 80%. When you need strength and signal quality will be obtained permanently attach the antenna.

Advice 2: How to set satellite dish

Satellite antenna gives the opportunity not only to watch TV programs in excellent digital quality, but also the opportunity to use satellite Internet, phone in places where no normal cable line. Installation it is usually carried out by specialists, however this can easily be done independently.
You will need
  • Satellite dish, Assembly instructions, tuner, TV, DISEqC, hammer, anchor bolts, compass
Instruction
1
Select a location to install the satellite dish. This requires open area from the point of installation on the satellite. All known satellites are in the South-West to South-East direction

The most highly located above the horizon satellites that are directly to the South. Good signal reception can interfere with any obstacles (trees, houses, power lines) on the line that connects the antenna and the satellite. The antenna must be in an easily accessible place, this is especially important for a setting.
2
Install the bracket. Use the hammer drill for drilling brick or concrete walls. In concrete or brick (silicate) wall bracket install on a special metal anchor bolts into the wall from porous bricks or red, you should use anchor bolts with plastic fillers.
3
Assemble the satellite antenna. To do this, use manual. During Assembly, carefully handle mirror antenna, to avoid accidental mechanical damage, which can affect the geometry of the mirror. After Assembly, check the tightness of all fasteners.
4
Install multifeed, two additional mounting converters: bottom left on the satellite "Amos" in the center – the "Sirius" and the top right on "Hot Bird". The result is "imaginary arc", which copies the position of the respective satellites in orbit.
Connect the cable to the connector with F connectors mounted on the cable without soldering:

1. Strip at the end of the PVC cable 1.2 cm of the top layer.

2. Tuck the braid shielded with foil in the opposite direction.

3. Cut the inner filler, so that there is about 3 mm.

4. Install tight F-connector on the cable as long as the inner filler does not seem out of the bottom of the connector. Bite the copper core so that it is 2-3 mm beyond the edge of the connector.

Remember, some of the wires coming to the converters, which are respectively connected to the outputs of the DISEqC switch: Amos – port "1" or port "A" port Sirius respectively "2" or "B"; Hot Bird port "3" or "C".
5
The correct adjustment of the satellite antenna. Tighten the screws so to be able with little effort to move the antenna left and right, up and down, but without applying effort to the antenna must be stationary. Start scanning the sky around the selected point.
The setting is done with an instrument or tuner and TV. Will put the tuner port DISEqC switch as was connected to LNB to the DISEqC switch. Connect the DISEqC switch with the "LNB IN" input of the tuner. Select any channel tuner with Sirius satellite, usually it's already "stitched" all the channels for dish. Look in the menu of the tuner scale setting of the signal level.
Note
In the Urals, some of the satellites that are visible from the European side, not visible and Vice versa. This is due to the shape of our planet.
