    Default Hotbirb signal strength

    what is the possible highest signal that i should get on hotbird? my location is kuwait, i'm having 4 feet solid dish and KU universal lnb.

    the highest signal that i'm getting is 65% in some frequencies where i dont have any problem viewing the channel but i'm getting only 27% to 31% on polsat, xxl and multivision that is why most of the time the picture is not clear or it is not viewable at all.

    can someone help me on how to fine tune or align my dish or lnb? if i'm facing my dish what is the position of my LNB? example... 7 o'clock, 9 o'clock. what is the frequency that i should use as reference in aligning my lnb or dish?

    signal strengt can be attributed to a lot of factors like quality of dish, lnb and direct line of sight for the satellite beam. i am also living in kuwait, and i get the signal for multivision at around 85% or above most of the time using a 5.5 solid dish, solely dedicated to hotbird. as for polsat, it is kinda low most of the times, 45% to 60% fluctuating. also the signal strenght is not dependable, like for example, the bodyguard 555 will show most of the time 90% signal strength and quality or nothing at all. the best way for you to get the signal is to ask for a professional dish installer with satlook or digital satellite meter because STB signal are not that accurate. anyhow, the position for your lnb is at around 4 to 5 o'clock when facing your dish. good luck.

    thanks anyway. i'll try to play with the lnb position you gave me and hopefully i will succeed. i dont mind even if i'll get only 50% to 65% as long as it is viewable.

    thanks again
