    Just Sharing This Feeds @ 1 west

    It's likely the output on it is too high for the 5302 (from the LNB's LNA) and swamping the AGC of the tuner.

    @jeallen01 This is how the dish skew works on my Maxview Zone 2 Clone.

    Just Sharing This Something to make dish skew possible on zone 2 dishes

    However a motorised dish can often give a better signal over most fixed dishes, provided the fixed dish has the LNB skewed, whereas the motorised dish will always skew the dish. But all things being equal a fixed dish will be better to dial in the very last drop of signal provided you can skew...

    Yes but that completely negates the point of it being an oval dish with a matched feed horn, as soon as you skew the LNB that benefit is being lost. If you look at the oval VSAT dishes, the dish is skewed.

    Great work! I've never understood why the LNB skews on the Sky dishes, having a skewing bracket would be better due to the focal shape of the feedhorn. However I have a Maxview Omnisat dish here (Camping Dish, based on a Zone2) that has a dish skew function.

    Edision Primo IP S2 Latest Firmware

    Just noticed the primo_ip_s2_v1.04.62 firmware has been taken down from the download site for some reason. The latest firmware on there now is primo_ip_s2_v1.04.60. I wonder if it had some issues or something?

    Grabbed the SDS Drill from Lidl as I need to remove some concrete fence posts, sold out straight away in my local stores for some reason.

    Just Sharing This Something useful for the garage/workshop

    The Lidl and Aldi digital calipers are worth avoiding, they seem to be made out of the finest Chinesium, I opened several sets in each shop and all of them would not return to 0 when opened and closed a couple of times, so pretty useless for measurements. Some were even rusty lol. The other...

    Advice Needed Enigma2 With Motorised Twin LNB and Fixed 28.2 dish.

    It seems with any of the E2 images/boxes you can't have a second feed from the same motor with a Diseqc switch. I've ended up just installing one of my CM 1.2's for the 2nd tuner, tuner 1 has the Gibby + 28.2e, all works fine.
