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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
