Tip: Improve dish signal reception with a funnel
Advertisement
#1
Dear Friends,
I always had an issue with some weak Dishtv transponders of NSS6 satellite.
The signal was not consistent and often there was picture freezing.
My dishes are installed in the home balcony itself to facilitate alignment and testing on my TVs.
Then I attached a plastic funnel to the mouth of the feed-horn of the LNB like the conical scalar ring my C-band dish has.
There was a considerable increase in signal quality and no outage as it happened before.

Presently i am getting Signal Strength at 85% and Signal Quality at 75%.

Any idea on how much the signal quality will be increased if I use plastic funnel.

This weekend will try and post the results.

This Funner End Should Come Onto The White Part Of LNB... Here Its Crosses It.. and The Signal Was Cross The LNB... Try Rectifying That...

The signal quality may increase by 3 to 5%. As Sadiq Sir said, fix the funnel smaller edge on the white feed-horn mouth of the LNB.

I bought a sun direct dth hd yesterday. After installation it took hrs to get the channels. I however felt very poor picture quality. More pixilated than the pictures thro my existing scv digital stb. I use sony bravia led tv. Will installing a funnel improve picture quality? Pl help as I am thinking of throwing the dish and stb of sun direct back.
thanks.
