Dish has finally added HD locals in my DMA on 129, but I currently have a 300 wing dish pointed to 61.5. When I checked the point satellite menu screen, it did not list azimuth or elevation information for 129. So I got the info from an online zipcode chart and am ready to reposition the dish.

What I need to know is whether there is anything I need to do before I move the dish, such run a check switch, reboot the receiver, etc. The dish is connected to DP34 switch. Thanks for any advice.
