HD 80cm Slough antenna installation
When ordering a HD 80cm Slough dish installation service, the customer will receive a new satellite dish with a single converter, cable for the decoder and a wall bracket.
If you need an installation with double cable and LNB or installation for a larger number of decoders such as multi-room, please ask us using the contact form.
The price includes standard installation of a satellite dish using 10m of single satellite cable and precise signal adjustment on an appropriately sized dish (80cm) to receive the new DVBS-2/MPEG-4 encoding system. This is the encoding system introduced by the NC+ and Cyfrowy Polsat platforms from 01.10.2015 and even if your aerial has worked for the last few years and now has lost the signal, or you are having problems receiving HD channels, it means you have too small an aerial.
With our antenna, we GUARANTEE a very high quality satellite signal.

You can also install the antenna yourself!
In many cases, this is not difficult. Before you decide to start installing the antenna yourself, please read the following instructions.
Self-installation is easier if:
The place of mounting of the antenna is easily accessible and does not require working at heights (garden, terrace).
2. the building is your property and is not subject to conservation.
3. the distance from the antenna to the Decoder is not large (less than 30 m) and there are not many obstacles on the way.
4. mounting of the antenna does not require drilling through ceilings and thick walls.
5. You have another person to help you.
Before proceeding with installation:
Choose a place to install the antenna – it should provide a view of the sky in the southern direction.
Gather materials and tools:
– antenna set, i.e. antenna with converter (for PVR BOX+ decoders we recommend double Twin LNB)
– Antenna mast or bracket mounted to the wall or balustrade (sold separately)
– 75 ohm antenna cable suitable for satellite installation, suitable for outdoor use (for complete installation of HD decoder with DVR you will need two pieces of cable)
– F” type connectors, matched to the diameter of the coaxial cable
– wrenches and tools needed to fix the mast, a drill with impact and drills for walls
– compass, protractor, ruler
– cable ties or glue, insulating tape, plugs, etc. and, if it is not possible to make a hole for the cable, a special flat section of the cable with “F”-type connectors, connectors for lightning protection installation
3) For shopping, go to a good satellite equipment store and a home improvement store.
Attention! In the case of PVR BOX+ we recommend to lead two independent signals from Hot Bird satellite, i.e. two cables led from double LNB (Twin type). Use of normal antenna installation with one coaxial cable is possible by disabling the ANT 2 antenna input. In this case, however, the recording features will be limited and the VOD+ offering will require more time for updates. We recommend using this option only in exceptional cases.
Installing a mast or antenna bracket
The mast should be a steel pipe with the external diameter recommended in the antenna installation manual (approximately 35 – 45 mm). In shops with satellite dishes you can buy various types of antenna brackets mounted to walls, horizontal railings, or poles.
Select a bracket suitable for the mounting location.
The bracket should be fixed to a rigid surface and very solidly, because of the possible consequences of dropping the antenna.
In buildings equipped with lightning protection system, the mast should be connected to the system (with 50 mm2 Cu or 80 mm2 Fe cable), and the external conductors of antenna cables should be connected to the mast (with 40mm2 Cu cable).
The above protection requirements do not apply if the antenna is located lower than 2 meters from the top of the roof and closer than 1.5 meters to the wall from the building, for example on a balcony.
1. good quality cable 30 meters long (longer cable requires use of signal amplifier), which will connect antenna set with BOX+ decoder, has no influence on reception quality. We do not recommend connecting several sections of the cable, unless the only way of getting signal from the antenna to the inside of the building is using special connector placed in the window in the form of a flat piece of cable.
The cable should be fixed and routed where there is no risk of tripping over or damaging it.
Avoid bending the cable sharply.
If the converter is equipped with a special gasket preventing water from penetrating, it should be put on the cable before inserting the plugs (converters with sliding casing do not need a gasket).
After you have checked the length of cable you need, buy a section with at least 3 meters of reserve. If you have a larger quantity, cut the cable only after it has been laid.
The “F” type connectors should be screwed tightly onto the coaxial cable, using pliers if necessary (better use a special wrench). It is important to prepare the cable carefully, and to check if fragments of the metal braid of the coaxial cable do not touch the center conductor.
Installation and initial setup of the antenna
After mounting the converter, we pre-adjust the angles of converter A and elevation B, which are marked in the figures below.
List of values of the angles needed for setting up the antenna:
Adjusting the converter angle – A
If there is a scale on the converter or you have a protractor, turn the converter in its mounting by the angle A read from the table, appropriate for the nearest city.
Measure angle A from the vertical, counterclockwise, looking at the antenna from the front, from the side of the converter. At this stage of the installation, it is not necessary to set the exact angle A. You will make corrections in the final stage of antenna adjustment.
3. use the mounting screws to lock the alignment of the converter in the boom mount.
Setting the elevation angle – B
The second step is to set the angle B – so called. elevation angle, i.e. the angle at which the antenna “looks up”.
Adjust the angle according to the scale on the antenna mount, taking into account any possible deviation of the mast from vertical. This is not the angle of upward tilting of the antenna, because offset parabolic antennas “look” upward already when the dish is mounted vertically. If there is no pitch, you can start with a nearly vertical canopy position.
Temporarily lock this setting with the screws used to adjust the tilt of the canopy.
Antenna direction setting (angle C)
The third step is to set the angle C (azimuth minus 180º). It is counted from the south direction clockwise.
Attach the antenna to the mast and set the angle C.
Screw the cables to the converter and to the receiver.
3. connect the decoder to your TV according to the instructions and start it up.
