Is it hard to adjust the 5lmb dish? I've only got a signal for local channels, I've lost my signal for everything else. I called directtv and they want $50 from someone to come out and adjust it. Any advise will be much appreciated.

There's a video on the solidsignal.com website for setting up the 5LNB dish.

Find an installer and offer him $20 and soda. I know I would do it if someone made me that offer.

Simple question. I have a 5LNB dish (Slimline)and the LNB has four type F ports on it. Do I install 75 ohm terminayors on the unused ports?
