LOL. I don't even know what all that means. Too technical for me.

"Skew" is a term used to line up the LNB [when linear polarization is used] to the North pole of the SAT, and not the north pole from the dish.
"Tilt" as used with DirecTV, is to line up the dish LNBs to the same arc of the SATs. All but one DirecTV SAT uses circular polarization, so there isn't any need for pointing anything north.
