    Question Multi LNB Setup: Sirius 4.8 E, Hotbird 13E, Eurobird 1 28.2 E.

    Hello,

    I live in Vilnius, Lithuania.
    My dish size is 80 cm. I have 3 seperate LNB's.
    Earlier I had configured my lnb's for Amos 4W, Sirius 4.8E, and Hotbird 13E and had no problems.
    Now for a while I've been having problems with re-configuring it to (When standing behind the dish) Sirius 4.8 E - left , Hotbird 13E -middle, and Eurobird 1 28.2E - right LNB.
    It seems I can connect to Hotbird satellite and to Sirius, but then i can't connect to Eurobird 1.
    If I set eurobird to middle lnb and rotate the dish towards it - it works, but when I try to connect all three satellites as hardly as i try to regulate LNB I can't get a level.
    So I want to ask how i must configure my lnb's to be able to watch from all three satellites, maybie there is something I'm doing wrong, or such configuration is not possible at all.


    Any help would be truly appreciated

    Hi proantibiotic and Welcome to sat TV
    Important point is the angle between your 3 LNB's for changing configuration like you say , you have to be able to change angle beetween the LNB's. Difference for those satellite is not the same on your location.permit your system to regulate those angles?

    the difference of angle on your last configuration is 10° , now if you check difference between azimuth of hotbird and eurobird 194.9° - 176.1° = 18.8 ° !!
    Hotbird in the middle you can't catch eurobird. If you don't fix the angle between the LNB's check the Skew and elevation too.Be carefull is very sensible to regulate that.

    Good luck
