    No problem,

    U can install dish by urself, all u need few directions, and proper use of mind, and u can save installation money, besides its really fun, u won't enjoy watching tv as much as u'll do while aligning

    no doubt its fun to install a dish i have been doing it back home, but in pakistan i don't know how to point the dish towards Arabsat, hotbird or Panamsat or Asiasat. so i will get the help of a professional installer.

    thanks again

    Thanks for precious info Pisce.I also live in Islamabad but i also purchase dish realted equipment from Rwp college road as rates are very reasonable in Rwp(some shops on college road and some in Imperial Market) . I also bought shabir mesh dish 8 feet about 10 yrs ago in 1996 and it still working fine and i can watch all channels from asiasat to paksat c band easily till the date.So i would prefer to buy shabir dish as pisce advised u its better to buy dish from college road ,two shops are at the end of the Gawalmandi Chowk,i bought power supply last year from 1st shop on right side of the road from gawalmandi side this shop rates are better.There are some shop in Imperial mkt but they are comparitively expensive.So its better to purchase dish products from college road for reasonable price.

    Well, its not very difficult to find proper direction in pind islmabad, if can c ther margla hill this is north, and oppsite to it is south where u dish will b pointing on the top of the art , the hight sattlite are Insat 3C where u can find DD National with very strong frequency of c band, facing south there is pas 10/7 about 2 degrees left and towards right is thaicome both has strong frequecey. if u have alligned ur dish properly at these sats then go all the way down towords right and find Asiasat 3S, adject ur elvation there, now ur in the arc can find any sat between asia3s 105 to paksat 38,for c band, now the trick for dual lnb, put ur ku band lnb on right side of c band lnb and u have to adjest elevtaion again, one draw back using dual feed horn is lost of few signles. so try it u'll get everything write

    In very simple desi way u can adjust ur dish to arabsat by adjusting its face slightly toward Left of Qibla and dish is horizontal to the roof.( i think this may work).Hot bird is located approx in direction of Qibla and slighly horizontal to roof i.e about 100 degree( bend slightly backward).

    Yeah they are, infact Eutle 3W lowest sat viewable in pakitan and when dish is pointing towards its on 90 degree, and toward Qibla, but i found that way more difficulte, i found the top of the arc sat method found more convinient. Now after palying with dish alignment for last 2 years. Now i can guss the direction the other way to find the direction is using sun at specific time of the day. SAA(sattlite antina alignment) tool is also very helpful find the direction or at least giving some idea.

    I hop guy will try installing dish himself
    there is another problem which i faced first time thats is how to assemble the pieces of parabola , the trick is, there are tiny parrallel hole on all pieces. so when u join pieces the hole come parallel to other, usually 2 holes are near the center and 2 are near the corner to distinguish between the pieces.
