Hi chi,
Thanks for the update but unfortunately I'm unable to switch to the new Satelite because i need to replace my old dish.
Will do it as soon as i buy a new dish.

Best regards

Hi chi,
Just positioned the my new dish to the new AFN Satelite.The singal strength was 70 and quality was 60,during the day time and picture was superb.After 1830hrs Zambia time,the strength and quality started dropping from 70 to 60 and 60 to 30 back and forth respectively.
The picture is breaking up and pixelation is occurring.What could be the solution to this problem?

Regards

CHI

First of all leaving aside signal dwindling! That's normal.
For it to be stable you have to do the following.
Make sure your lnb is set to Horizontal, ie facing towards your right instead of left.
Make sure the dielectric plate is inserted a little deep inside the lnb. To do this you may need to rub off the edges of the dielectric and insert it again untill its deep enough! My first finger after the thumb reaches 3 quarters inside!
It should be separating the two probes inside the lnb( those two small antennas inside the lnb.
With that setting your tp should be H not V
from there, use this tp 3702 H 4999. Make sure the signal intensity is 75 and the quality does not go below 69, then select the AFN and you will hit 66 or 69 if not elevate very slowly while checking your signal quality level.
I always find that AFN is a little above 3702h4999.
If still the signal doesn't get improved check the azimuth ie turn left or right.
