I'm considering the Acutrac22 PRO MKII to align my AU9 dish with the non-SWM 5 LNB. How are the 4 cables coming from the LNB hooked up to the meter? Does it matter which 2 cables are attached or is a spitter required? The information I found mentions the need for ASL-1 for the SWM LNB, but not the non-SWM LNB. Thanks,

You can use any individual or pair of ports from the standard LNB. All 4 ports are equal. The Acutrac can power the dish, or (probably better) you can connect a receiver to the other side of the Acutrac for power. You do not use the ASL-1 with a conventional dish.
