Hi. You need to adjust the dish slightly up to get Astra and Hotbird. To do this just move the motor tail up and tighten the bolts. I have a TM2600 motor and can tell you that are very good and accurate. Also with a 1m dish you should be getting high signal levels for the satellites you mentioned. To get the arc spot on you may need to adjust the dish and motor settings a few times until you get it right. Try and use USALS as this will make it easier to find the other satellites . If you need further advice please ask.
