Ran a internal test and it said my dish need an adjustment, probably has not been adjust in well over two years. What is the best way to schedule this?

Call Directv.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

We can check your signal readings if you like ....


Please post back with your signal readings for each satellite's transponders (and both tuners if applicable). You'll find these readings under "Menu" -> "Setup" -> "System Setup" -> Satellite -> "View Signal Strength". Note the "+" and "-" symbols next to the "Satellite" and "Tuner" entries where you can toggle the readings between the various satellites and both DVR tuners.

Fill in your readings for each satellite and tuner using these examples. A properly aligned dish will show 80-90s on most of the relevant transponders (although some will be low or zero):
