For those that does't have space for mounting seperate dish for W4/7 and Astra 2b. You can still have both birds on a single 65cm dish just by adding another lnbf to make a 2in1 set up.

Good info, abeg pls explain further
Re: 2in1 Set Up ( W4/7 And Astra 2b ) by niddle9(m): 1:27am On Sep 25, 2010
It can be achieved by either adding a new lnbf to an already set up W4/7 or by starting fresh.
Re: 2in1 Set Up ( W4/7 And Astra 2b ) by niddle9(m): 1:39am On Sep 25, 2010
First start by tracking your W4 and achieve a maximum signal quality about 98 on 11900h 27500, lnbf skew at 8.30 and 9. 0 clock while facing the dish. Ensure you are recieving lcf, rts, ohtv frequency. Then proceed to adding another lnbf for your astra 2b.

Now input joytv frequency 12550v19531 then plug the lnbf wire to the decoder. Now below the w4 lnbf at the screw holding your lnbf holder, tweak your lnbf to 8.0clock facing the dish. The lnbf should come from right on the tri rod and should not exceed that screw holding the w4 lnbf holder.

You'll have to find something to tie the second lnbf. I'll add my set up pictures later. Its kinda rough.

@niddle _9 nice one u got there ,but my set up is kinda different and is cool. It's not new ,i have this setup since the advent of multi tv on astra 2b. It goes thus:

Track multi tv on the primary lnbf using 12551 V 19531 and hit 95% or above.Then get a flexible metal(about 20cm in lenght) with a fabricated lnbf holder attached or a flexible wire to hold d lnbf in place. now attach d metal to the holder of the primary lnbf so that the new lnbf is directly on top of the primary lnbf(on a 90 cm dish about 16cm away ,on a 60cm or 45 cm dish the 2 lnbfs are almost in contact.)Now proceed to track using 12130 H27500 and hit about 95%(i have 98 % in my set up). then go ahead and input the tp of your favourite stations on w4, (coded?)Trust me it works.I have more than 20 of this accredited to my name in my locality( SHK in the South West).U can Start 4rm the left facing the dish 3'0 clock lnbf skew.

@2legit2
you cannot use a dual lnb. The idea is to lock-on two different bird on a single dish. We will be able to achieve it because the birds are close. So using a dual lnb will only lock a single bird.

@kinmen
great job. Kindly you upload your set up pics so as to learn more. So people with 90cm could use your invention and of 65cm will use mine. Or we could open another thread on 90cm.
@all
my set up pics will be uploaded shortly. FTA forever.

Nice pictures. Before i try it later today. What do u guys enjoy on w4/w7 that will worth my stress? I know some of the channels but an interesting programs?
Re: 2in1 Set Up ( W4/7 And Astra 2b ) by niddle9(m): 2:59am On Sep 26, 2010
@toba
You don't look at stresses when you are a FTA hobbyst, all you'll look at is achieving a maximum signal quality of any bird. We learn,experiment,conclude and achieve in FTA. If you have seen people like Oga Badaru,Olofofo, et al working with 3m,4m dish hunting stubborn birds that are out of footprint and getting green results, then you'll know what its like doing something on your own.
And this whole idea is to combine two birds on a single 65cm dish. All for FTA lovers. Kudos to all FTA enthusiast.

@niddle
Man thats imagination, nuff respect to you , I would never have thought about using a boot lace to acheive two satellites at once, thats innovation,
Any way Ive been meaning to post my pics of some satellite installations that i carried out While I was i Nigeria and Ghana In February of this year and also more recently in september of this year, i just returned back to the UK last week after a fantastic month spent in Nigeria.
The first few pictures are of a 65cm nailing astra 2b /w4 that i put up near Badagary in february of this year.
I used a multi lnb bracket that i brought over from the UK, The bracket can hold up to 3 lnbs over a span of 14 degrees .
I took some samples down to good old alaba market and the interest was immense, but i found even the installers had difficulty setting it up, once you know how its easy.
I notice you use W4 as your prime and ofset astra B meaning your second lnb will be below the prime lnb,
Ive done the reverse by making Astra 2 my prime and ofsetting W4 hence my second lnb is above my prime,
on the 65cm set up I was able to tune in all of DSTv transponders except the french part, all of HITV transponders
all of Multi Tv and Infinity.
Second pictures are a 85cm that i installed two weeks ago in ibadon using the same method.
I installed another Dish at OkokoMaical Last week using a 90cm and this time I set W4 as my prime and ofset astra 2 B. I found that Infinity transponders suffered badly in the rain using this techniqe, the bracket did not cope well this way round
on all installations i used a two way diseq switch

@Peacenlove
thanks man, you are a great man and what a clean installation you got there. We need more of your type on this our beloved forum. About the shoe lace,
I once met an elder on this forum that make uses of stick, broom, glass, and any material product on earth, in achieving maximum signal quality. Kudos to you oga Badaru. And many great people that started this forum back in 07. But laziness is taken over the forum this days. As a 9ja we ought to stand up and do something ourselves.
