    Hi guys i have a slimline dish I just installed. It has a single lnb that can get 99/101/103. It also has 4 ports on it.

    Does it matter which of the 4 ports i use to get the 101 sat?

    Also, do I have to skew the dish? All I want right now is to find the 101 bird.

    I only have one receiver I'm going to hookup to, its a D12.

    You can use any one of the four ports, they are equivalent when wired directly to a receiver or dvr.

    Check www.dishpointer.com for aiming and alignment information.

    If all you need is 101 then dont even worry about the skew just leave it set at 90 set your elavation make sure mast is plumb and tune azimuth left and right till you hit 101.
