    It explains a lot... I was almost getting to the point of shouting, particularly at the long intervals between replies.

    You do need to do initial setup on motor at zero with the whole rig pointing south, though. Then send the motor to your setup satellite and tweak it after that.
    GB Quad Plus, Mut@nt HD51, AX HD61, 80cm dish and Supreme Dark motor. Sony STR-DN 1060, Sony UHP-H1 Bluray, Odroid N2+ (CoreElec), Monitor Audio Bronze 5.1 speakers

    I know I told him all that numerous times. It was late when I posted. Have you seen the u tube video that mentions the 3 dots? The image is Openatv 6.4.

    In actual fact what he wants is the exact same set up as in your pic as it would push rig out further.

When you say you are undoing the screw of the LNB, I take it that you are trying to move the LNB slightly closer to the dish or away from the dish to get the signal peaked? You should do this and also should try rotating the LNB in the holder to get the skew correct. With a motorised setup, the usual thing to do is get the LNB so the the cable is at 6 o'clock looking at the dish from the front when the motor is at zero. The way the dish motor works means that the LNB will skew as the motor turns. Tune to a weaker channel and rotate the LNB in its holder slightly and move it closer or further out in the holder to maximise the signal quality. A tip to check the dish elevation is to grasp the bottom of the dish and push it down or up and watch the signal quality value. This will give you an indication which way to move the dish elevation bolts. Similarly grasp the left or right side of the dish and push or pull and this will give you an indication which way to move the motor u-bolts on the pole.

    I can't find sport klub on 0.8W listings. Are those channels on a different satellite? Some transponders may not be aimed at the UK, so you may not get them.
    OK I'm going to change it. Hopefully it will help to resolve the problem.

    The sport klub is on 16east satellite. Please check it and let me know.

    You need to set your coordinates in tuner setup and then tell the motor to go to 0.8W. Once the motor is at 0.8W you move the motor around the mast until you find a channel on 0.8W.
    Ah I see, so if I move the whole rig back to dead centre with the motor 0 due to south, how I can tell the motor to go to 0.8west when I enter the correct coordinates in turner setup?

    It sounds like to me I need to reset it in the turner. I have tried to reset the motor but it still don't send to 0.8west. I need your help.

    Your best bet is to pay a professional to come and do it for you.
