Use the screen.
Exceedingly poor advice.
Did you try it ?
Part of what makes your advice poor is that you didn't define what "the screen" is.
The poster had noted in the portion of the message that you bolded that the AZ-EL data presented by the receiver DOES NOT apply to the dish that they are pointing so recommending that they use the data anyway is bad advice.
That AZ/EL/TLT for D500 applicable for triple dish too.
The numbers are quite different.
For my ZIP code, the numbers for the Dish 500 are:
Az=149 El=37 Sk=81
And for the Dish 1000(.2|+) the numbers from the manual are:
Az=156 El=37 Sk=86
I'd be pointing in the general direction of 114.5W 5 degrees off skew and that's hardly "applicable" (appropriate).
That's biggest exaggeration what I read last years: those numbers are never been final point of aiming. It using for initial aiming. Duh !
The gross exaggeration is saying that the Dish 500 and Dish 1000 numbers are the same. They are not and that's why DISH gives each its own table of numbers.
Why start with numbers that aren't within a tenth when they're available?
The enjoyment comes from watching TV, not molesting the dish.
We will cut the line.
Who need it, he will understand both sides and will pick by himself what he will find helpful.
I used the info from dishpointer.com and hit it no problem. I had already tried the info off of the screen an only got partial stations...no HD, only standard on all stations.
I knew the coordinates off of the screen where not what I needed. I bought the dish from a homeowner in my neighborhood. Using the elevaton and skew from the screen where about 5-10 degrees different than what was already on the dish. Using dishpointer got it back to what was originally set. Makes sense that dish being used in the same area should have the same settings.
The only problem I have is not getting HD on local channels. I think it's due to my account settings...planning on calling dishnetwork to troubleshoot. When I do checkswitch, I get green-OK on all three dishes.
