I am about to install the Slimline 5 lnb dish and need the elevation, azimuth and tilt. I don't have a receiver that will give me that information for 5 lnb's. My receivers will only provide it for phase III dishes.

Would someone mind plugging 01719 into your receiver and posting the results?

Thanks

Those videos are great. Those along with the instruction booklet made it a pretty easy process for me last week. Just go over it a few times. I even practiced as much as I could with the dish in my living room, to understand each step.

Don't get too intimidated by the guy saying how hard it is. :) It wasn't much different than aiming an older dish in my opinion.
