SLX Sattelite Finder.
17 May 2016
By
, South East.
" 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. "

Good bit of kit
13 Apr 2015
By
, ASHTON
" 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. "

£70 quid less in Skys coffers
10 Jan 2015
By
, Wath Upon Dearne
" 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. "

Picture fixed in minutes
12 Aug 2014
By
, County Down
" 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.

18 Jan 2014
By
, Kilwinning
" 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. "

A Must Buy
11 Jan 2014
By
, Lancashire
" 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. "

does what it says on the tin.
3 Feb 2011
By
, Halifax
" I dont usually do reviews but i have to say this works perfectly. 15 mins of tweaking and job done, perfect alignment. start by pointing the dish the same way as the neighbours and then fine tune with this. Not the clearest instructions but it is common sense and really easy to use, A bargain at the price. would cost at least 40 quid to get someone out to do it so it has paid for itself first time. Its not worth not having one. "
