Hi so I was wondering if anyone else in Auckland is having signal issues or if it was just the wind that moved my dish last night. Hopefully there's others :D as aligning the dish is a pain in the ass.

I've been having signal issues since I moved into my new house in December. A replacement LNB was done in January, but its still bad. Haven't bothered ringing them as yet. I live in denial that it might improve on its own.

Finally got some time to look at it. During the heavy wind/rain the night before, the satellite had been knocked by something and was now aligning itself pretty close to the D3 satellite, rechecked the LNB settings were correct, and moved it about 4 degrees and :-)

Forgot to add, don't ask a SKY rep for the proper settings, they gave all frequencies out that were totally incorrect. Check satmax or other such sites before entrusting yourself in a major money procuring buisness that is SKY.

But they only have 75x more people than NZ does - it's all about the numbers.
