  • Installing Dialog TV

    friends,

    i just got a Dialog TV dish which was originally installed at Malabe. i live in Weerawila, between Thissa n Hambanthota.

    i tried to install it over here and no results. only thing i got was about 60% of sig strength and no quality signal. i dont have the money that dialog ask for the reinstalling the dish and coz im in the military, and i move very often, i will be paying huge sum of money to these bastards if i pay them to do the work every time i move my residance.

    so please help me. when i called Dialog then sugested resetting the reciever to factory settings, but it didnt work. please help me out here guys.

    Thanks.

    Signal strength 60% means your box and LNB got connected. If you have a compass use it. Turn you dish to 264.3 and elevate your dish to approximately 47.4. Turn the dish up down and left right. You'll get the signal easily.

      thanx i will try that. im new for this so i have to ask. what do u mean by elevating? does 47.4 deg means rotating the dish 47.4 deg from the horizontal level. and there is another adjustment at the LNB. it has couple of notches from 20-0-20. what should i do for that?

        My friend make sure the main stand is 90 degrees straight. If you have not dismantled the bracket from the dish just fix it back on the stand and move it towards the sunset side and turn it to your left or right. You will get some quality signal. Keep the TV closer to where the dish is so that you can see and adjust. You can't adjust by keeping the TV inside and shouting from the roof "Harida? Harida?. See if any dialog dishes closer to your house and that way you can imagine the direction. Good luck. If you were close by I would definitly help you. Aaronsat.

            Thank you very much for the help machang. the stand was not 90 when i removed it from colombo. good thing that i started by making it straight. i was able to get some sig first but then after 20 min or so lost it again. i think its the trees n stuff. so moved it to the back garden and found an old log to fix the stand :). then was able to get about 69% sig strength. and good Quality too. wanted to call the dialog guy n say hell with u, who asked me 1500 just to that.

            thanx to everyone who helped.

            BTW-instead of me shouting harida harida, i told my wife to should the Sig strength out loud :)

                        Friends though I joined you all last year I have been in other forums since 1982. In fact I had my first dish fixed and started with analog and still continue as a hobby. I am 65 years old and have ample experience to help others who needs. One thing I learned was not to advice anyone unless you are asked for. The stand being 90 degrees is a must.Though the bracket would have been crooked the place where the dish is connected has to be 90 degrees. Specially for novices its easy to tune. In theory if you are 1cm wrong at the dish you will be almost 400 miles away by the time it reaches the satellite.That will tell you how precise it is.Dialog people have experience by fixing so many daily. Once you are veteran you too will not worry about the 90 degrees. So you learn the basics correct. Since Di

                            Hi DR4, yes you can tune.Better you use a 120cm dish.One thing you must remember is No signals are beamed to SriLanka.All we receive is the spill over signals that are beamed to India. There are global beams which we can receive too. That is the reason you can't receive certain channels. If you tune a regional beam you might not get. Then there is spot beam also which is limited to one area. Now to your query You need to get or make a bracket to fix the C band LNB. But you will get only one or two transponders only. I have triedthis on a 90cm dish. It worked. Regarding MPEG4 receiver I helped a person to tune it and he said its available in the local market.When I posted the information many were interested.It seems this guy does not want to reveal the place.But the sooner i get I will let you all no. I have a MPEG 4 receiver for my experiments.
