Satellite Director

Finding a TV satellite, in azimuth, can be pretty difficult. Before you can find it with a compass you have to do some calculations using GPS location, magnetic variation, compass azimuth and satellite azimuth. Satellite Director replaces all of that. See tips to success below.
Português: Telefones sem bússola não pode baixar este aplicativo.WARNING: YOUR PHONE or TABLET MUST HAVE A COMPASS !!!!WITHOUT COMPASS YOU CANNOT DOWNLOAD THE APP. Some phone/tablet compass are really bad so compare your phone/tablet compass with a real compass !!

Unfortunatly you have to calibrate the compass before using it. Metal covers/cases or covers/cases with metal/magnetic closure will influence/disrupt the compass of your phone or tablet. Do not use these covers !! The compass of your phone can also get inaccurate because it is affected by other electro
- magnetic fields or because it is weakened by age. Calibrating the compass may not help anymore. PRECISION DEPENDS ON THE QUALITY OF YOUR PHONES HARDWARE.

Warning: If you use Cyanogenmod / Cymod then you may run into Android compatibility issues and the app may not work. You should then complain to Cyanogenmod / Cymod and not to me.

This app is add-free !Help me to continue the work on this app and watch some of my videos on Youtube. The advertising in the videos provides some required money (houres of work, phones to test on, satellite equipment, etc.).

How does it work ?Just enable the GPS in your phone or enter your GPS location, select the desired TV satellite and point your phone to the sky to target (find) the TV satellite. You have found the satellite when the white ball is in the white circle and the cyan ball is in the cyan circle. Align, in azimuth, the offset arm of the satellite dish to the cyan arrow on the phones display and the satellite dish is aligned in azimuth with the satellite.Selectable audio tone, camera preview, continuous mode (no pause), color pickers or a user defined satellite position may make it easier for you to find the desired TV satellite. The satellite list contains 280 satellites.Optional you can take a photo (resized)/screenshot by touching on the director tab. The photo/screenshot is ONLY stored on the phones memory card.Optional: you can get an indication when you are to close to iron (dish/pole) in the form of an green/yellow/red bar.

Satellite positions are derived from Agi's database. Some positions may seem not accurate (example: Hispasat 30°w is at 29.96°w in the satellite list) but they are very accurate.

New phones with Android 4: in case of a wrong compass reading the "Settings" screen has options to correct the compass readings !!!!

Previous versions are available from my website.If you have any questions, requests or problems PLEASE write an email.

3 tips to success:1
- do NOT go to close to the iron dish, iron lnb arm or iron pole (keep at least 30 cm distance)2
- calibrate the compass of the phone by waving it in a figure 8 before you start3
- optional: calibrate the compass of the phone by rolling your phone along its length axis about 2-3 turns (works on some phones)

Use it every day. Sometimes I can do an alignment with just the app and no extra tools. Only problem with the concept is phone compass' sort of sucks but that's not the app's fault so if you're having a bad time then it's probably because of that

Took time to understand the working mechanism, though after understanding it was pretty easy. I had to set the angle for Airtel Digital TV and with the help of this app it was a piece of cake. Thanks Team.

The most reliable app for sattelite finding. The moste acurate one. With Many other options. You pick a satellite and go screen direction and bingo. I haghly recommand this apps. Its save you

I was unsure if the app would help, but was pleasantly surprised. Once location and satellite was set up, it aligned my dish exactly.

good app but i don't understand the point of forcing camera permission i just want to set the antenna i don't need a camera

Nee. S. Jun 29, 2020     

worst app . don't waste your time on it The first thing is that it is only a pseudo application. It has nothing to do with antenna syncing with a satelite . It only has the information about the satelites and there location,but no one can do that process without proper instruments, and with a android phone its impossible.

Dip. D. May 2, 2022     

It is good and camera also good but the signal are not coming

Nag. b. Jan 14, 2022     

Works good, I have changed my Dish setting TATA sky to DD free dish. It's worked fine. . most of them confused about holding the phone & recever LNB stick .. this app cleared the issue with help of camera..! Nice

Kap. S. May 30, 2020     

Nice app. working 100÷ and addfree. Just keep your mobile little away from antenna as magnetic compass is disturbed by iron dish. It provides exact location of satellite. Happy and satisfied with this app.

Nor. W. Mar 30, 2022     

I've used this app for several years. Recently, a change requires access to my photos and videos or the app won't function. WHY do you need my photos and videos???????

Joe. W. Jan 5, 2019     

Joke of an app. As a test, checked accuracy of app with known Satellite position and dish angle already locked in. Instead of setting angle at 34 degrees in SE sky, this app had me setting my dish at 62 degree angle in the Western sky. DON'T rely on this app to point dish. Buy a compass and follow settings that came with dish manual, you'll be better off.

No signal was coming to the TV due to my Airtel dish antenna moving. Was upset for two days no dish-setter was being found. A mechanic was also found, he was only asking for the fee of 250 rupees to come home. And any expenses will have to be paid separately. Then I suddenly came across an app satellite director on YouTube, I downloaded it from the Play Store to my Android mobile. With this, my dish set very easily. All the housemates are very happy and thank the creator of this app.

Very useful application, I'm searching for one sat, if I get it I'll give the 5 🌟.. I like that it gives you the direction in 360° , so I get the exact level and direction of the dish..

Does not work anymore. Have used it with good results in the past but now shows Astra 2G due south rather than 28.2. Samsung S7 gps settings cleared and calibrated several times.

Yog. R. May 30, 2019     

I used this app for tuning my TATA sky, Indian satellite TV provider.Typically I would have been charged INR 500 but I saved that all doing the positioning of the dish antenna to G-Sat-10. I never thought it was possible to do it at home .Many thanks to the developer :)

Excellent app Does a great job for me Loved it. My TV'S signal was gone.I tried many times to get signal but failed.But this app does great work for me....

MAT. W. Apr 13, 2019     

1. check your altitude, longitude and latitude with the help of an app. 2. check the satellite used by your cable provider on google. 3. feed these values in the app 4. use director to allign your dish. perfect app. thankyou developer

ICA. J. Apr 26, 2020     

Its very accurate and great app Is there no option to upload image otherwise i will upload image that my dish tv signal is set by me with satellite director i salute to developer.

On top of my roof turning the disc no luck, suddenly remember my phone in my pocket, install the apps adjust the disc, suddenly hear the tv sound down stairs, Walla done, I am alone, thxs save my day

Roh. c. Sep 11, 2020     

The app used to be excellent , I don't know now it is not working in MI note 8 pro. GPS ok , compass not working . Tried to calibrate but ball not moving.

A. G. u. Feb 2, 2019     

This app gives correct calculations.but the elevation angle given here for normal dish only not for offset dish which is widely used nowdays.tracking impossible with ur calculation. elevation angle should be substract by 22 degreea

Vij. Oct 29, 2019     

Great app, First time I used this app to set Airtel dish successfully without any difficulties. It saves money and time...Thanks a lot...

Ism. I. Jul 13, 2021     

You just can locate the direction left and right. What about up and down? How to locate the satellite's position up and down???

Ani. May 26, 2020     

Worst app....it clam to get signal but it didn't work at all. I tried this app twice but both of time but it can't met my expectations.

FRX. K. Mar 3, 2022     

Working app love this aap 💕

Sha. A. Oct 7, 2018     

app is good, some information section should be there for various dish and their satellite names eg. DISHTV uses satellite nss6 this will make easy to use info abt Lnb setting will also be helpful if provided

Sur. M. Jan 24, 2021     

I use the app few months ago align was correct result,but current time different alignment not the correct position so improving the app please

Kun. K. Sep 22, 2020     

Why do you need permission for pictures and video? Would try another app which does not ask for unnecessary permissions.

gay. R. Jul 16, 2020     

Excellent app. Using this app I set sun direct signal and I got back all the channels . Thanks to Satellite Director.
