Dishpointer will give you inaccurate coordinates Use Google earth to pin point
Your excat location You will find your cordinates will be completely different from
Dish pointer

you are right!! there is quite bit of difference in two. I checked on Googe Earth and quite bit of difference. will check on motor tonight and report. Hopefully that will fix my issue.

do you have any comment on my second question regarding copying tuner settings from one image to a different?

Remember when your motor is at goto 0
Your satellite dish should be 180° south
Which is 2.7 west Looking at your satellite dish face on when the satellite dish moves to thor 0.8west It should move to the right
A few degrees

If you used this tunner configuration
You can purchase a v box positioner to store
Your satellite transponder position

STAGE 1.


GOTO Main Menu \ Setup \ Service Searching \ Tuning
Press "OK" on "TUNER A"





Use L/R keys to change Configuration Mode to "advanced"
Move down to "SATELLITE"
Use L/R keys to select the satellite you want to add





Go down to "LNB"
Use L/R keys to select "LNB 1"
Next ensure "Diseqc Mode" is " 1.2"
(I left the others at the default setting's)
Scroll further down to "LOF" and set it to "Universal LNB" using the L/R keys





Underneath that set "Use USALS" for this satellite to "no" using L/R keys
Go down to "Stored position"
Set the position you want to for this satellite to appear at using L/R keys ie 001, 002 etc and press ok
Then Press "OK" to save the info you have inputted.
You will need to perform this for each Satellite position you intend to set up. Before you got to positioner setup.


STAGE 2.
GOTO back to Main Menu \ Setup \ Service Searching \ Positioner Satfinder
Go down to "Satfinder"
Press





Press ok on Satfinder next picture





Using L/R keys select "Predefined or Manual transponder" as required
Go down to "Satellite" and use the L/R keys to select the Satellite to place at the above Storage postion
Press "OK"
When you have a lock exit this screen
GOTO back to Main Menu \ Setup \ Service Searching \ Positioner setup





Press ok on positioner setup next picture
Go up to "Tune"
Press the "Red Button"
Select the satellite that you had a lock on, change the transponder so it was the same as in the satfinder picture





Go down to "Positioner storage"
Use L/R keys to set the postion number that is to be setup
Press the GREEN button to store that location
After you have stored this position got back to satfind and change the satellite to the next one you want to view, when you have a lock on this satellite exit again and proceed with the satellite positioner again .
You will need to perform this for each position you intend to set up in line with what you did in stage 1

TUNER SETUP


STORED POSITION


Thanks . Did not understand what is V box until I googled it. Dont think, i shall be buying any additional equipment to store positions.

The instruction you sent to save positions were same I used to save my current settings . As it is a time consuming process, thought to learn a way to copy the settings.

I think, i should be able to copy the tuner settings by copying some files. found these on a different fourm, will try if that works?


The tuner setting are part of the file
settings
located in /etc/enigma2
and you can copy all the lines starting with NIMS. Chech in it also for some other lines that might be related to tuners.


if someone have done this then good to know if it works.
 
Thanks will check coordinates again to make sure.

How can I check each Step west or east move the dish by what angle? As I done 8 steps west so that could be 2 degrees movement if each step is quarter a degree ?
I think each 'step east/west' movement moves the dish 0.1°. Try moving from a transponder on 9e to 10e or vice versa. It should take ten presses of the step east/west button to move between the two sats.
