I did not make this up. :)

My dish setup is as follows:

1) Triax multifocus with four LNB:s
    Astra1, Hotbird, Sirius and Thor
    (S19.2E, S13.0E, S5.0E, S1.0W)

2) A regular 80cm dish for Eurobird/Astra2 (S28.2E)

DiSeqC setup is like this:

I wrote a diseqc.conf by hand for my setup. A diseqc documentation
pdf from eutelsat was of great help.

I live in Siuro, Nokia. That is 25km West of Tampere. Prosieben
works just fine, along with many other channels. :)
