How often do you change yours?
Oct 5th, 2003, 1:50pm
 
How often do you change your Lnb -ive had a cambridge 0.7 since 1998 on a lenson health 1 metre dish- reason for asking I can get a picture on Tv1000 (2 & 3) the horizontal ones- but nothing on tv1000 (1)
Signal level is between 30 &40 % for all channels the quality is 30% for horizontal channels and 0 for vertical channels -the dish is approx 3 foot from the ground with no trees etc to obstruct

hi m8,if the signal quality is only 30%on tv1000 2&3,then u wont recieve any vertical channels,i dont think its your lnb,but the fact is u may need a bigger dish to pull in the v polarity.what is your location,and have u ever pulled in v polarity?

Hi m8's
 
To get those weak signals on 5W in the UK i.e. TV 1000, the only answer is a larger dish..(I have Triax1.1)...........The 0.3 LNB did make a difference for me with regards to Ticket....I can now get them all during daylight hours (about a 10% gain on the 0.7)......Still fades during the night though. If you have not seen the post, "TV1000 East" is coming in strong on a new beam (Europe I think). For me, I have read that a 1.5 mtr is the minimum.............My local Council wouldn't like one of those on my wall!!!!
 
Best of luck....bigglesk

in that case you can always try the good old inline amp to boost the signal?

I`m in the north east midlands,i can get tv1000(1) 4 a few hours during the day but i have a 1.2 channel master dish.
As others have said the only way you will pick this channel up is with a bigger dish.
