Multi TV is a privately-owned satellite television platform stationed in Ghana with a presence in more than 26 countries. It has over 20 TV and radio stations with a range of sports, entertainment, news, and education options. For viewers to have excellent access to its service, it is vital that the Multi TV dish’s installation and the accompanying decoder, whichever kind it is, is done correctly. Some choose to engage the service of professionals, but most prefer to do the installation themselves. This article aims to educate the latter group on the correct installation procedure.

How to do a Proper Installation of a Multi TV Dish

Before beginning the step-by-step installation process, one thing you must do is ensure the dish is facing east to face Multi TV satellite. The dish must be positioned similarly to match it and ensure you get an excellent signal. Below is the step-by-step process to ensuring a proper Multi TV installation:

  • The dish comes with a dish manual. The dish comes with a round plate, dish accessories, an LNB and its holder, a stand, and a dish cap.
  • Assemble the dish using the manual, then carefully attach the LNB into its holder at the last end of the angle bar.
  • Choose the rear end of a wall that you find suitable. Then proceed to mount the stand with the four holes at that same rear end. DO NOT bend the stand or twist it in the wrong direction. Therefore, hold the stand firmly with your hand, then access if the dish is adequately fixed enough for it to track signal while facing the east. If so, you can now proceed to mount the stand on the wall.
  • Ensure to use concrete nails for the wall and regular nails for the facial board.
  • Mount the dish in a place with zero signal-blocking obstacles, e.g., tall buildings, electric cables, or planted trees.
  • Tighten the dish partially to allow for movement and adjustment. Do this as you may need to move the dish vertically or horizontally until the signal is received.
  • Use the connectors to connect your coaxial cables from the dish with the receiver.
  • Connect into the receiver’s LNB input.
  • Turn the receiver on.

As long as you follow the processes above, abide by the Do’s and Don’ts, you should be successful with the dish installation. Once you are done, it is time to set up the accompanying decoder.
