How to Install a Satellite Dish for DSTV, MyTV, Etc. Yourself

We decided to come up with a complete DIY guide for installing or setting up a satellite dish & decoder for DSTV, MyTV, Multi TV & etcetera by following after a simple tut.

This idea was birthed after we recently installed one for a student who complained of having not even half our installation fees. We concluded that a guide like this can help a lot of persons install their satellite dishes without a bug of any kind.

Following this guide step by step will help you install and set up your satellite Tv dishes without the usual missing channels, poor signal, and related issues that happen as a result of low technical know-how for installing satellite dishes.

We strongly advise you to ignore this if you have a phobia of learning new stuff or not a big fan of do-it-yourself (DIY) guides. It can come in handy for new installations, adjusting dish positions, or when relocating to a remote area.

Tools Needed

  •  The Satellite dish and components (ie. Reflector, Lnbf, and Decoder. They are usually sold together).
  • A good hammer.
  • 4 Pieces of 3-inches nail
  • I packet of cable clips (the one with nails)
  • 10/13, and 14/15 combination, flat or ring spanner(s)
  • A cutter (or electric pliers)
  • A Black Solution Tape (sellotape).
  • A Screwdriver
  • F connectors (a minimum of 2) and Coaxial cables (1 full roll of Coaxial cable is about NGN1,000, $9)
  • A 4663x or 4669x Strong decoder (special digital satellite signal meters for installation can come in handy for this, but we used a strong decoder and so will be using it for references throughout this tutorial). You can buy cheap digital satellite signal finding meters online. Either from here, here, or any of the top online shopping malls with reputable sellers.

Extra Tools

This part is necessary if you are going to use a pipe and not the house roof, wall, or wooden fetcher board before the roof.

The pipe must be fixed on an open space without trees and/or other hindrances. Below is the tools necessary for mounting your satellite dish in an open space outside the building or with a longer pipe.

  • A cup of Cement mixed with stones
  • a trowel
  • Cutlass or shovel (for digging of the hole)
  • A paint of sand and a bucket of water

How to Setup the Satellite Dish

The satellite dish components will usually come in separate parts and must be arranged in such a way that makes it easy to receive signals and withstand strong wind.

The arrangement of the dish components depends on where you intend to mount it. If you are going to mount it on a root, wall, or wooden fetcher board of the building, look at the image below for how it should be coupled.

If you intend to mount it on a pipe outside the building, look at the image below and use the tools listed in the extra tools section above to make it solid and well-grounded.

The last thing needed to complete this section is to fit in the screws and nuts in the reflector’s (dish) rear and connect the LNBF accordingly. See the images below for the tips.

After mounting your satellite dish correctly, you can safely move ahead to the next and final steps covered below.

How to Configure the Decoder, Activate smart card and free-to-air channels for first viewing

This is the part where your digital satellite signal meter will come into play. Plug the Coaxial cable into the Lnbf base of the main dish assembly and then plug the other end of the cable into the LNB in (Antenna) port in the back of a digital satellite signal meter or a strong decoder.

Complete the second part also known as dish alignment by locating east, west, points, and degrees depending on the satellite tv provider you intend doing the setup for.

Do note that for this tutorial, we used a strong decoder (as a digital satellite signal meter) to install a DSTV satellite dish and then connected the lnbf cable to the DSTV decoder to watch all the channels available for our selected plan.

The angular position, polarity, and transponder frequency values for the popular satellite TV providers are listed below for your learning.

Orbital Position & Frequencies of Popular Digital Satellite TV Providers

For Multi TV (Joy TV): Use –

  • Orbital Position – EAST
  • Transponder Frequency: 12553, 12525, or 12522
  • Symbol rate: 19531, 27500, or 27000
  • Polarity: Vertical


  • Astra2F
  • Orbital Position: 28.2°, 28.5°, or 26° East
  • Transponder Frequency: 11595
  • Symbol Rate: 30000
  • Polarity: Horizontal
  • Dish Size: 1m or 100cm dish

For DSTV: Hereunder is what to use for DSTV transponder frequency and symbol rate. Simply Use

  • EUTEL SAT W4 or Eutelsat W7
  • Orbital Position – EAST (@ 36 degrees)
  • Transponder Frequency: 11842, or 12245, 11728, 12284, 11900, or 11747
  • Symbol rate: 27500
  • Polarity: Horizontal

Note that this particular setting works for High TV, Train TV & most other sports channels satellite providers.

For My TV: Use –

  • INTEL SAT, 7.10/K
  • Orbital Position – West
  • Transponder Frequency: 10986
  • Symbol rate: 26657
  • Polarity: Vertical

For CanalSat Afrique: Use –

  • Orbital Position – EAST
  • Transponder Frequency: 12722
  • Symbol rate: 30000
  • Polarity: Vertical

For HotBird: Use –

  • Orbital Position – EAST
  • Transponder Frequency: 11881
  • Symbol rate: 27500
  • Polarity: Vertical

For Nile SAT: Use –

  • Orbital Position – West
  • Transponder Frequency: 10.990 or 10.993 or 12.130
  • Symbol rate: 27500
  • Polarity: Vertical

Scanning for Satellite TV Channels & Completing the Setup

This is the last step for installing a satellite dish yourself: Once the polarity, orbital position, and transponder values for your chosen satellite provider is noted, move on to this step to complete the channels scan and full activation.

From your strong decoder remote control, find Menu and then select installation. Enter 0000 as the password and Select manual scanning and then enter your satellite provider’s values as listed above Eg. Eutelsat w4/7,  transponder frequency, symbol rate, and the rest.

For Dstv we did the setup as follows:

  • We selected Eutelsat w4/7
  • Under frequency, we put 12245
  • Under symbol rate, we put 27500
  • Under polarisation, we put H

At this point, the signal power and the quality meter will start reading, start rotating your reflector (dish) up/down and sideways around 36 degrees east (see your neighbors own for tips or read directly from your digital satellite signal meter).

Watch the signal power and quality and tight the dish strongly once you are able to get values higher than 60% (We got 89% for ours). Once a good signal quality is ascertained, your satellite dish is all setup.

Disconnect the LNB-in from your strong decoder (or digital satellite meter) and connect it to the DSTV decoder. Select English from the language options, E36A-B from the next window, and Universal for LNB type. Hit scan to install and complete the channel setup.

Note: If you are using a digital signal meter, the scan option won’t be necessary. All you need to do is: Connect the LNB-in to the meter and enter the frequency, polarization, and symbol rate values while aligning the dish for the best signal quality.

DSTV Free-to-air Channels

Once your DSTV satellite dish is installed correctly, the following channels will show in clear qualities as they are free-to-air channels for all DSTV satellite dish owners.

  1. Channel 100
  2. Channel 198
  3. Channel 409
  4. Channel 447
  5. Channel 449

How to activate a DSTV Smart Card for First Use

If you are activating your DSTV smart card for the first time, you will need to buy a subscription plan. All DSTV bouquets are listed here.

Insert your smart card and take note of the smart card number. Call 012703232 or 08039003788 to set up your account or dial *288# to follow the USSD prompt.

What if there’s the E16 Error Code?

This is a very common error with activating new accounts, you can correct this error if, after 30 minutes of activation, your subscribed (premium) channels are yet to show up.

You can correct the E16 error by sending reset plus your smartcard number (eg. reset 1234567890) as an SMS to 30333 or by using the clear error code – E16 option on the self-service section of the DSTV website.

DSTV Satellite Dish Signal Troubleshooting Tips

DSTV Signal setup and troubleshooting guide

This is an important update for those asking for help on how to properly position their satellite dishes after relocating from their old residence and/or when the dish position gets tampered with by kids playing within the surroundings.

This section would also come in handy for those experiencing very poor reception, distorted audio, and poor visual rendition.

Here, you won’t be needing a digital meter or strong decoder as the built-in signal tuner function that comes with DSTV satellite dish decoders will suffice.

What you need to do is this-

  1. Position your TV in such a way that- it can be viewed clearly while turning the satellite dish. You’ll need to take it outside in most cases or ask someone else to look at the TV and give you updates while you play around with the satellite dish positioning to various angles.
  2. Turn on the entire system and press the Help button on your remote control.
  3. Scroll down to general information and then Tunar Status to your right.
  4. Click the Tuner status and use that to set up your satellite dish for the best delivery. Anything between 60 and 98 is perfect and would be hardly disturbed by rain and/or poor weather.

Here’s a short video to help you locate this menu option with ease.

Bonus Tip

How to Record TV Shows, FM Radio and Satellite Programs

DSTV Explora hardware and some other premium satellite TV decoders let you record events and programs for future viewing, but if you are using the HD version that doesn’t give such privileges, you can use this section for tips on how to record TV programs for future viewing.

  • Select the device to use (for this guide, I’ll be using a PC. Note that there are such enhancement for smartphone and tablet devices)
  • Get a USB TV tuner box/stick (assuming you don’t have one already). You can buy it from Amazon INC. by following this link or from their listing page here. There are cheaper models of USB TV tuner stick on Aliexpress too, you can buy one of those from this page. (Note that older desktop computers use the PCI component for TV tuning, there’s likely the chance that yours has one already for second-hand buys).
  • Connect the USB TV stick to your PC and then, connect the RCA from the decoder to it or use the RF-out to sync between your regular TV and USB TV card.
  • Install the USB TV box software and support drivers.
  • Select any channel of your choice and hit record to save for future viewing. You can record FM stations and similar programs as long as they work on your PC.

Note: You can record both satellite TV programs and regular TV shows with this guide. You can also use your regular TV cards (for desktop computers) to record live TV shows by upgrading the support software to their latest version.

    • Hi Olakunle,

      This part is very simple. It is meant for those interested in viewing the satellite stations from their PCs. Most tech stores sells devices popularly known as “TV card (for tower desktops) and/or USB TV box”. Once you have installed the device to your PC, you can record TV programs and radio station updates from TV on PC player interface.

  35. Hi Obasi, I have been having the fear of using a Qsat decoder. How can I use it to watch FTA channels such Dove Tv, RTM, New frontiers and the likes.

  61. I moved to a new area, put my dish on the roof, pointed it in the general direction the other dishes were pointing and bingo, all good. What do installers charge for? No gadgets, no special meters …What a croc of shit.

  62. Pls Sir,what are the decoders that can be used as signal meter for dstv installation? Can Strong decoder still be used and are they any other ones I can use? Thanks in anticipation.

  63. hey there, someone tampered with my dish (mytv-strong decoder) and ever since some channels went haywire and in a bid to pacify the issue I further tilted the dish to various angles and guess what, THIS IS NOT HELPING either instead my whole channels went “no signal” report. please what do I do to reverse cos out of much anger and frustration I deleted all channels after much fruitless trials.

    thanks in advance!

    • That is very easy to do bro, make sure the tips of the inner is sharp & straight, then fix it in to the line-in input channel and fasten with the screw nut

  64. Hello mr obasi please your help on the new frequency and symbol rate of my muilt TV please help on that with your reply here thank you.

    i recently formatted my dstv to factory setting. how do i add new channels.even d free to air channels r not showing.tnks 08100415379

  67. Hi guys I have a problem here was installing Dstv but now it stuck on scanning -whatsapp or call me 0717842414 Thank you

  68. Thank you very much for this useful information. I am indeed grateful. Where can I get a digital satellite meter?

  69. Hi. Pls, there’s this decoder called Metro digital tv. do have an idea on how to install the stuff, and if so how do I go about it?

    • What I asked you to check is the LNB-in, that is – where the cable coming from the dish is connected to (in the decoder’s rear). You can do so by unscrewing the F-connector and checking to see if the tips of the cable isn’t broken and then connect it back and properly screw the nut.

      • Please Mr Miracle please flash this number or message on WhatsApp me with this number please I need ur assistance please 0/703328/3379

    • It depends on what caused the signal lost, it could be as a result of the coaxial cable LNB-in broken, the dish changing from its original position, messing with the decoder settings and sundry reasons. So it is best to troubleshoot along these lines whenever there’s a signal lost.

  70. Tanz for ur effort in helping us save some money. Pls i just want to ask if it,s possible for a cable to cause a low quality signal in multi tv . Are my suppose to start turning d dish when it is on manual scanning or dish setting ? Pls help i have been on since yesterday . Thanks

    • Once the cable is properly connected from the rear panel and confirmed okay from the indicators, it is save to start tuning the dish randomly in the right directions while watching the signal/quality movement. The position with better quality would be the standpoint to hook on to.

    • You will need to set the right frequency and polarization and then tune the dish accordingly until you start noticing some movement in the bars. You can use the details here as a template

  71. Nice one. But what about the big dish, the 2 meters and above. I also want to know about the costs involved. Thank you.

  72. hi miracle,
    want to install arab sat,
    im in n.west uganda(westnile),
