In any satellite installation, there are some major things to avoid in order to get a satellite signal. The first thing to look out for in any satellite installation, is the position of the satellite and the right place to fix the satellite dish. Every satellite have its own position, so to track and get a stable satellite signal of any sort, you should first know the direction of the signal waves. Most satellites names comes with their direction and position. ASTRA 2A, 2B 28°E and EUTELSAT 36°E are example of satellite on the east, these are multi TV and DStv satellite respectively.
So get to know the satellite position which will make it much easier to track.
The next thing will be the place where you’re to fix the satellite dish. Make sure to fix the dish in an open space whereby there’s no blockages, be it a tree or a long building. After getting a perfect position the next thing is to fix the dish pole. The pole have to be fixed straight and strong in order to get any satellite signal. You can’t just fix the pole anyhow and expecting to get a stable signal. The pole have to be strong enough in order to hold the satellite dish for a long period of time.
Furthermore, the LNB will be the next target. To install any satellite, your LNB have to be positioned at the right angle to get that satellite.

In conclusion after putting all the right measures in place, the last thing will be how to scan the decoder correctly to get all the available channels. When it comes to scanning, you have to perform blind scan, that’s what will bring out all the available channels.
In most satellite receivers, they normally place the blind scan option at where it’s not well visible.
The blind scan option is mostly found on satellite list pages.
