    I am about to install the Slimline 5 lnb dish and need the elevation, azimuth and tilt. I don't have a receiver that will give me that information for 5 lnb's. My receivers will only provide it for phase III dishes.

    Would someone mind plugging 01719 into your receiver and posting the results?

    Thanks

    Welcome to DBSTalk! :D

    According to my H21 after plugging in your zip:

    Tilt: 60 degrees
    Elevation: 33 degrees
    Azimuth 236 degrees

    Those videos are great. Those along with the instruction booklet made it a pretty easy process for me last week. Just go over it a few times. I even practiced as much as I could with the dish in my living room, to understand each step.

    Don't get too intimidated by the guy saying how hard it is. :) It wasn't much different than aiming an older dish in my opinion.
