Before the digital broadcasting system in our country, there was an analogue broadcasting system. In the analogue broadcasting system, small deviations that may occur in the dish antenna settings did not prevent us from receiving television broadcasts. Even if the broadcast was profitable, it could be translated by the satellite receiver and transferred to our television.

With the transition from analogue broadcasting to digital broadcasting, the dish antenna settings must be precisely focused on the signal transmitting satellite. Small deviations adversely affect the signal quality and the broadcast is not received. For this reason, dish antenna settings can be made with digital frequency finders, satellite finders, satellite finders with a precise work. You can use technical services to get a smooth broadcast.

In areas where there is no technical service, in case of easy access to dish antenna, television and satellite receiver devices, let’s try to examine together How to Make Dish Antenna Settings by looking at the television screen.

In order to watch Turksat satellite broadcasts, we need equipment such as Dish Antenna, LNB and Satellite Receiver (receiver). Firstly, make your television and satellite receiver device connections with the help of hdmi cable or scart cable. Connect your LNB device to your dish antenna. Connect the LNB device and your satellite device to each other with a satellite cable. The quality of your satellite cable will minimise the interference that may occur at the signal level. For this reason, take care to use a short and high quality cable to avoid a decrease in signal quality. If you need to use a long cable, you can strengthen the signal by using a “line amplifier”. After your connections, switch on the devices by making the electrical connections.

The dish antenna adjustment will be made by moving azimuth (right-left) or elevation (up-down). For this reason, move to the place where you can move your antenna comfortably.

Press the info button on your remote control on any channel broadcasting as a weak signal among the satellite receiver channels. In some brands of satellite devices, you may need to press the info button twice or access the signal section with a different button.

When you see the signal levels on the screen, turn your satellite dish antenna left and right, up and down with small movements. Tighten the screws by marking them on the antenna connections according to the highest signal you caught on the screen. Tighten the screws by alternately changing the screws at the four adjustment points and checking the signal level on the side. If the signal drops, tighten the opposite screw to stabilise the signal.

After configuring your dish antenna settings, let’s configure the LNB settings without disturbing your antenna setting. Complete your settings by tightening the screws at the highest signal level by moving your LNB device back and forth left and right by checking the signal.

What is LNB? LNB devices amplify the satellite signals they receive and perform a frequency conversion on these signals and transmit the satellite signals at high frequencies to the satellite receiver by reducing them to low frequencies. LNBs can be supplied as Single, 2, 4 and 8 according to the places to be used.

Since satellite systems are not fixed and frequently changed systems, the quality of the selected equipment will extend the service life and save you from unnecessary costs.

Congratulations, you have completed the satellite dish settings. It is time to scan the frequencies on our satellite device and set the channels on the Turksat satellite. There are automatic frequencies on the Turksat satellite so that the devices can automatically receive channels. In our previous article, we have examined in detail how to make Turksat Automatic satellite network search.
