I'm in the process of upgrading all my HDTV stuff, and that means mounting the new DTV 5LNB Slimline dish that arrived today.

Although it will be a month or more before I get around to buying the DTV HD receiver that I'll need to complete my HD package, I want to get the dish mounted and aimed tomorrow, as it will still work with my existing 3 LNB receiver.

Does anyone on the MAK board have a Slimline 5 LNB dish mounted at home?
 
If so, could you give me the Elevation, Azimuth and Tilt numbers for the Zip Code 80808?
You would get those numbers by going to your system menu, then dish aiming, then put in 80808 as the zip code, and then the three numbers I need will pop up. Write them down, then press cancel/exit, and you're back to normal.

Anyone help?

I think you would better find the birds with the HD reciever.

Good Luck

Thanks Nick!

The manual that came with the Slimline states that if you get max signal on the 101* and 119*, that everything else will be in alignment.

I got...
Az 165.7 mag
El  44.4
Tlt 94.2

Thanks again!
