"Great piece of kit at a great price. Put up a satellite dish to get Freesat. tried the simple alignment of matching direction of neighbors dish with no joy. Found this on the Screwfix website, checked store stock and was back up the ladder with 45 mins aligning the dish professionally. Had it perfectly lined up within 10 mins.
Great little bit of kit, doesn't even need batteries, and saves a lot of time when installing a satellite dish. Highly recommend."
"This piece of kit couples up between the Satellite dish and the Satellite receiver and makes louder sound and shows higher readings on the scale as you get closer to moving the datellite dish to it's optimum position.
It saves hours of initial setup time and helps greatly in getting the final fine tuning set easily and quickly.
"Very basic meaning it's extremely easy to use and reliable. Please note that you will require a fly lead to connect from your LNB to the Sat finder. This requires a piece of Co-ax and 2 female Sat connectors. The kit would be a more complete item if this lead was included."
"Had to order for next day collection, would have been better if kept in stock, but apart from that was fairly easy to use and instruction manual easy to understand. Certainly a lot better than one's used previously which only had indication LED's and not as accurate. Not had the unit long and only used it twice so far so cant comment on reliability yet."
"Put my dish up set it same as next doors no signal. After messing about with moving the dish and getting nowhere fast bought this meter. Took 5 mins to set up. Impressed. Not given 5 * on all because you need to buy a link lead and the is no way to reduce the signal strength on the meter. Meter is easy to use and does what it says."
"Bought this today after last nights storms moved dish. This is the second time in the last 6 months and the last episode cost us about £70 for Sky Engineer to come out and then it took several days. This product is very easy to use, instructions easy to follow and in less than 15 minutes Sky up and running again. I would highly recommend this product if you don't mind climbing a few runs of a ladder to fix the problem yourself."
"We managed to hit the satellite dish at the side of the house when moving some shed panels, resulting in loss of picture. Picked this up in Screwfix, took it home, read the instructions, put together a short cable with coaxial and 2 F connectors, connected it to the dish, few adjustments vertically and then horizontally and picture was back to perfect HD sharpness with no distortion or breaking-up at all! The meter makes an audible tone so you can take your eyes off it while making adjustments to the dish. Good value for money and saved an engineer calling out."
"This worked a treat and saved me £60 on sky charges. Beware there are many signals out there and it really does take a bit of fine tweaking to get the right one. Google moving the dish if you're not sure and remember you need a short satellite cable as this doesn't come with it. You can buy it from screwfix for a few quid."
"I've just installed sky in my workshop and thought it would be a simple matter of pointing the sat dish in the general direction of the neighbouring dishes, how wrong was i! The orientation of the dish is critical and without this little gizmo you probably wont find a signal. Unlike tv aerials, if the dish isn't spot on you will get zero signal. The Finder is straightforward to use although i found the audible beep just an annoyance and unnecessary. An absolute must buy for sat installation."
