Tilt, skew, rotation all equal the same. They all mean how much to ROTATE the dish either clockwise or counter clockwise on the mounting backing plate.

Azimth=rotation east west on the MAST.

Elevition=up down of the main arm.


jimmie yes, some times the settings given by dishpointer will change by one or two numbers for a differant dish and will also be a little differant from readings in the reciever.

After the last couple of posts I checked the dishpointer and my receiver. The tech did not enter the zip so I had to go back thru the setup and enter it.
The elevation and twist matched within a half a number and the rotation / azimuth varied just 2 numbers between them.

Yea, I had dishpointer set for single dish, not multiple LNB. It closely matches the receiver when set to SL3 on dishpointer.

Installed new LNB and haven't had any problems even with all the bad weather we had.

I have been out of the business a while. It caught my eye when you said you were using a 3 lnb multisat with a multiswitch. I think you may have to use a wide band 6X8 switch with a ka/ku dish. you could try to run a cable directly from the dish to the receiver to check the switch and alignment. I am not trying to sound like a know it all. I just know how hard it is to work on something that just keeps giving problems. Jeff
