I am going to a football game tomorrow and am taking my direct tv with me. I used to take Dish Network and had no problems. I bought a dish(dsa-18s) but I noticed that there is no where to tilt the dish like my other Dish Network dish. Do Direct Tv dishes not need to be tilted? Also, how can I find the elevation for zip for 35487(Tuscaloosa, AL)? Thanks
If it is a single LNB dish, there is no tilt adjustment needed, since that is used to align things for multiple satellies. The 2-, 3- and 5-LNB dishes have a tilt adjustment. You can find the azimuth and elevation settings by going to menu/setup on your receiver, which you will have to do anyway, since the settings are only approximate and you will have to tweak them to get the best picture.

Thanks for the help. I thought I was going to have to buy a new dish. In relation to the Dish Network satellites, are the Direct satellites more west or east(left or right if you will)? I used to have my dish set at 50 elevation for the Dish Network. Again, thanks for the help.
The main (101) satellite will be to the left. The 110 and 119 satellites are at the same position as the main Dish satellites.
