    Been scratching my head on how to use a portable sat dish on MH, but had difficulty getting cable from outside to receiver, when I discovered one of these flat gizmos...

    Anyone used one?

    Thanks
    One of these came with my portable sat dish, not included in the instructions, wondered what it was for:Doh:

    Now all I need to do is work out how to get a signal (been trying off and on for some time) should know better cannot work a DVD player properly:RollEyes:

    Hi Colin... I have been using a multimo dish (from Roadpro) on and off for years and am only just mastering the sat finding game (thanks to Rex.)

    It is a bit like fishing... the joy when you actually lock onto the (correct) satellite is well worth the effort!!!

    JJ :Smile:

    Thanks for the info re through window connector Tony... was getting one from Roadpro but Maplins appears to slaughter them on price!!! If I get one before you I will post a review!

    Our Aldi kit included one of those flat cable sections and it works fine. The idea was that a short length of the main cable should be cut off and have appropriate connectors attached for use between the flat section and the decoder box. I found that tthat piece of cable was too stiff though so bought a more flexible cable from Maplins.
