Renting a friends place so re-wiring is going to be a bit of a problem.


Satellite reception is ok thanks to a teak of the LNB Skew, but UHF is a bit patchy. Should be OK based on location but I appear to be getting an echo from either Pinehill or Sky as I'm seeing two Mediaworks multiplexes

Other than asking the landlord to get an installer in any recommendations on tweaking the alignment of the aerial etc?
