1. How to Assemble a Sky / Freesat Satellite Dish

List of Sky dish components

  • Sky Satellite Dish
  • Wall Bracket
  • Wall Tube (Arm)
  • Elevation Bracket
  • Dish Bracket
  • Fixing Kit
  • Feed Arm

Tools needed to assemble Sky dish

  • 10mm, 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Philips screwdriver

Steps to assemble the satellite dish

  • Open fixing kit and select U-bolts (qty: 2), nuts (qty: 4)
  • Insert the U bolts through the wall bracket
  • Thread on the nuts
  • Insert the arm and tighten the nuts using 10mm socket and ratchet
  • The wall bracket & arm assembly is complete
  • Next insert U-bolts (qty: 2) through the elevation bracket
  • Loosely tighten nuts
  • Attach the elevation bracket to the dish bracket
  • Using bolts and washers (qty: 4), tighten with 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Use the bolts and nuts (qty:4) and the Philips screwdriver to attach the dish bracket to the dish
  • Use the long threaded bolt and small nut to attach the feed arm to the back base of the dish bracket so the arm protrudes in front of the dish
  • Finally insert the LNB (and plastic insert) into the end of the arm and secure with a tie wrap

2. How to Mount a Satellite Dish

Equipment needed to mount a satellite dish on a wall

  • Sky satellite dish, complete with wall bracket and arm
  • Coach bolt M8 x 50mm & 10mm plastic plugs (qty: 4)

Tools needed to mount on a wall

  • Cordless drill - ideally a 24-36v SDS Drill
  • 8mm, 10mm drill bits
  • 10mm, 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Satellite meter

Criteria on where to mount the satellite dish?

  • Dish must face South East (141 degrees i.e. direction of sun 11am BST)
  • Wall must be a solid surface capable of carrying weight of satellite dish
  • Signal must not be blocked by houses or trees (signal is coming in at 21 degrees to the horizontal)
  • Place at back or gable end of house to minimise visual intrusion
  • Place as close at possible to TV room to which the satellite cables are to connected so as to minimise cable run

Steps

  • Place the wall bracket and arm in the correct location
  • Use the cordless drill and 8mm drill bit to drill 4 guide holes
  • Use 10mm drill bit to drill holes to a depth of 60mm
  • Insert the 4 plastic plugs in the holes and mount the wall bracket using the 4 coach bolts
  • Tighten the coach bolts using the 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Attach the satellite dish to the arm of the wall plate
  • Use 10mm socket to lightly tighten the dish 'U'-bolts so they are fixed to arm but the dish can still be rotated
  • Follow steps in the how to align a satellite dish guide

3. How to Align a Sky / Freesat Satellite Dish

  • Having already mounted the satellite dish on your wall
  • Attach your satellite meter to the dish LNB
  • Align the dish so that it is (1) perfectly vertical, (2) pointing south east (141 degrees).
  • Rotate the dish slowly over and back
  • Repeat adjusting the tilt angle by 1 or 2 degrees to until a signal is found
  • Tighten the U-bolts and side bolts using the 10mm & 13mm sockets
  • Disconnect the satellite meter
  • Connect a cable with an 'F-type' connector from the dish to the satellite box
  • Check that the signal is working

4. How to Run Cables & Attach Connectors

The next step is to run satellite cable to the satellite receiver

Tools needed

  • Hammer
  • Snips
  • Drill
  • SDS Drill Bit 10X450

Equipment

  • Satellite Installation Kit

Prior to begining you must decide

  • Decide how to run cable
    • Connect into existing cables in the attic
      • Normally neater but requires additional connectors
      • May need a multi-meter to be able to identify the correct cable
      • May result in longer cable runs
    • Run a cable directly from the satellite dish to the satellite receiver
      • Fastest and easiest way to run a cable
      • Cable runs are normally shorter
      • Requires the drill of a hole through a wall

STEPS

  • If the satellite receiver is to be located next to the external wall of a room
    • Use a drill and an SDS Drill Bit 10x450 to drill a hole through the wall
    • Ensuring to drill from the inside out
  • To conceal broken plaster use either
    • Hole tidy (insert inside and out before the cable is run)
    • Cable cover nailed onto the outside wall after the cable has been run
  • Feed the end of the satellite cable through the wall leaving enough cable to reach the front of the satellite box
  • Now start tacking the cable using 7mm clips and a hammer
  • Ensuring that the cable runs down from the hole that been drilled in the wall
  • This will stop water following the cable into the house
  • Continue tacking the cable
    • Run cable vertically or horizontally but NEVER diagonally
    • If possible hide cable under the plint or behind drain pipes (using 300mm cable ties)
  • Cut the cable leaving enough length to reach the LNB of the dish
  • Put on an F connector on the each end of the satellite cable
  • Screw the F connector on to the LNB
  • Seal the connection using Insulation tape or ideally waterproof self amalgamating tape
  • Secure the cable to the dish feed arm using either 300mm cable ties or Insulation tape
  • Final step is to put on an F connector on the satellite cable next to the satellite receiver

How to put on an F-connector

5. How to Install Your Satellite Receiver

  • Unpack the box
    • Satellite Receiver
    • Remote control
  • Screw the lead from the satellite dish into the LNB in connection
  • Connect a scart or HDMI cable from your TV to the box
  • Plug in the power lead
  • Turn on the power switch on the back on the box
  • After 5-6 seconds the box will come on and should automatically switch TV to AV channel
  • You may need to switch AV channel on TV if it does not automatically switch over

Fantastic..very prompt now my husband can watch his crazy shows and leave me to watch mine..A very happy Lady
I have dealt with this seller a few times,and they always get it right.Great service,items in perfect condition,and very helpful.I would recommend.
Excellent product very easy to setup.great company to deal with.fast delivery
First of all great delivery I placed my order at 11:15 and received it 11:05 the next day. The Edision Progressive Nano HD sat receiver has an excellent picture and sound quality its tiny in size and with IR EYE supplied with means you can hide this tiny receiver away from site or even stick it to back of TV its packed with all the features you ever need from rec and play back / multi media via internet by use of optional usb dongle you can watch You Tube / listen to your own music through your tv set or your favorite radio stations on the web as you can see I'm very pleased with this tiny but mighty satellite receiver
It's a very handy little box if you don't have much space- it is absolutely tiny and can even be easily stuck to the back of your tv. The picture quality and menu interface are very good. The instruction manual came in German, so I just used FreeTV's Youtube guides. The plug is an EU plug but an adaptor was provided. The remote control isn't the best (small) and the box has no bells & whistles- plain, tiny box with no LED frontal screen. Overall, the box is good quality and ideal for space saving. FreeTv provide excellent customer service (will email you back so quickly [within 30 mins for me] if you have any queries) and fast delivery. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again in the future- great value and service that you won't get elsewhere. Thanks FreeTv!
Very pleased with this little box. It's far superior to anything I've used before both in ease of use and picture quality. Delighted with the preprogrammed channels groupings under FAV button - logically arranged and easy to find. Thank You :-)
This is a great piece of kit at the price,great value and works perfectly,just plug and play. Box arrived on third day after ordering,no problems.I would definitely buy from freetv again,very reliable,fast and good products.The videos on you tube are a great idea and very helpful.
once again excellent service, many thanks
great little box fast delivery very happy purchase
Great little box! Simply plug it in and away you go. Quick, friendly and efficient service.
Great little box that has a nice interface. Very neat and sits right under the TV. If you add the WiFi dongle you can't go wrong.
Great little box, everything i need. Picture quality very good. Delivered in two days. Very happy with the whole purchase from start to finish. Ps. Love the new website
Received the Edision Progressiv Nano HD Satellite Receiver today which was well packaged and delivered quickly. After connecting it up it worked perfectly. Instructions in German but found the You tube videos helpful. Would like to know how to add favourites in future video. Top marks to Dave & FreeTV!
Brilliant FTA Box, great service too by TV Trade
Brilliant box, I can't fault it.
