Hi
Thanks for posting. And welcome to HUKD.
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title and an image. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.
Emmajk42 / Juliet_Bravo wrote a couple of very comprehensive and excellent guides for newcomers to HUKD here: - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/145906/newcomers-advice-on-hotukdeals-gene/

This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/339941/how-to-post-and-host-images-for-thr/
They are well worth taking a look at.
Again, thanks for posting, and welcome to HUKD.
Kind regards Andy

compass will wprk better than this thing. had one and booted down the garden after about 30 mins of using it and nothing.

A compass will NOT find a satellite in the sky .It will give you a rough direction in which to point the dish .You use a satellite finder to tweak the angle of the dish to get the best signal .I use a needle type sat finder , originally for an analogue system but works well with digital systems .I have 3 dishes on my place ,2 fixed dish's [Astra19.2* & Hotbird 13*] and a motorised dish at the back of the house and I could not have fitted them correctly without a meter .

Depends how much you value your time. For me to keep running from the bottom of the garden to the house to see if there is a decent picture would be a hassle. The one I have gives a meter reading and a sound when the signal is strong (higher meter reading the stronger the signal). So you know when you have the strongest possible signal.

You may find you have a good picture when you do it using a compass but when it rains you may find your picture breaking up if the weather changes.

You could well be fine with Sky where it's easy to find due to the strong signal but for some of the other satellites I think you would be struggling more.

Seconded. 28.2 east is fairly easy to get if anyone nearby has sky as you can point it into that direction and you will easily pick up a signal but going for arabsat for example, usually you end up at astra 19e or hotbird 13...
