## How do I find a satellite signal?

Connect the LNB and the set-top box (or the TV directly) using a satellite cable. Position yourself (or a helper) so you can see the screen. On your TV, select the menu item under Settings that shows the strength and quality of the desired satellite signal.

## How do I set the satellite correctly?

Make sure that the chosen location can be aligned with the satellite (usually it is a southern alignment) and that there are no obstacles (eg houses or trees) blocking the clear “view” of the satellite. An obstacle should only be half as high as it is away.

## How to find the Astra satellite?

Most households in Germany align their dishes to the satellites at the Astra 19.2 degrees East position – in addition to public service broadcasters, they also transmit many private broadcasters, Sky and foreign programs.

## How many degrees satellite dish?

In most areas of Germany, the inclination angle is between 28 and 36 degrees, the azimuth angle between four and 19 degrees East. In order to find the perfect alignment, the system then needs to be fine-tuned.

## What is the elevation angle?

Elevation (from the Latin elevare ‘raise’) stands for: elevation angle, the angle above the horizontal plane, see vertical angle. Elevation (anatomy), raising the arm above the horizontal plane.

## What is a tone burst?

Also called tone burst, is an additional switching criterion that receivers can deliver. This signal does not contain any digital commands, but it can still be evaluated by most switches for position switching.

## What does Azimuth True mean?

The definition of astronomy is: The azimuth is the angle between the meridian plane and the vertical plane of a celestial body. This system is also becoming increasingly popular in astronomy. It is then usual for the four cardinal points: N = 0° (0); O = 90° (π⁄ 2); S = 180° (π), W = 270° ( 3π⁄ 2).
