Satcure recommend you push the prepared end into silicone grease and then screw on the f connector. If you have 4 connections to make, tape can be awkward I use lnb boots (slide them over the cable before fitting the f connector.

It’s really personal preference. Crimped connectors will be the most reliable (provided they are done correctly) and the strongest connector (vs. pull) but it requires specific tooling for crimping and stripping the cable and connector. Compr...

Anybody got a good contact in the Chania area (south west) that does the sort of repair and set-up that Graeme Cook used to do, i.e. knows how to set up a Sky dish.
I already have silicone grease so more won't be needed but thanks, anyway. It's an interesting possible solution which hadn't occurred to me (nor anyone else I'd asked) but it'd make me nervous to try it. Maybe I'm being a bit dense but, before I start spreading thin coats of grease everywhere, what, exactly, do you mean by 'contacts'?
In the book "Electrics Afloat", the author suggests using vaseline on thru deck glands to make them them waterproof but warns against getting any vaseline on the actual connections as it would act as an electrical insulator. I have read in numerous places to protect battery terminals with vaseline. Would this not diminish the electrical connectivity between post and cable?
My own dish has screw on f-plugs and a blob of silicone grease, never any problems over the last two years. Perfect reception. Amalgamating tape on a single or twin lnb is fine, but try it on a quad to wrap each output separately and I guarantee you will be ready to commit murder in a short time.

Sparky, the grease alluded to is silicone grease which is like---grease, & helps you create excellent F-Plug connections. Do not be tempted to use ordinary grease for this work. It is also available from Satcure.co.uk who could also provide with the correct size of F-Plug if you quote the exact outside diameter of your cable.
Hello Graham, The unit and silicone arrived promptly and today I exchanged it on the dish. I was able to fit the new unit using the existing bracket, the ones that arrived with the unit were not compatible with the arm I have.

Mine gets soaked from a bit of bad guttering that I haven't fixed yet so it's good that mine has both silicone grease AND tape. If in doubt, a bit of extra money and time spent now, may stop the need for you to go up the ladder again in a few months after having to buy a new LNB as yours is waterlogged.

I suspect a poor F connector - it is a frequent setup problem as the HDR-1000S only checks during initial setup. You will need to refit the F connectors - these need to make an electrical connection and they should be tight if the correct size for the cable was used. Here is a helpful page - Ignore the silicone grease on the internal connection.
The cables are fitted with F connectors. These have a screw thread for attaching the lead to the LNB. The F connectors themselves simply screw on to the end of the cables. You might find it easier to take off the plugs when routing the cable, then fit the plugs back on before reconnecting. Here's a How To on fitting F plugs from the Satcure site

Due to decorating postponed from last year, I had redirected the coax (outside a conservatory), joined an extension coax with two F plugs & middle connector,placed the join well off the ground in a plastic temporary cover with tape at each end of the coax to waterproof it, anyhow decided to redirect it yesterday, opened the plastic to find the middle connector had a white coating (external ...
I want to re-route my cable through a hole which means I need to remove a plug then re-attach. I have two options neither of which seem to unscrew; do I need to cut them off?
