    I found a link at DirecTv where I type in my Zip Code and it gives me the Azimuth and Elaevation settings I need for the Slimline Dish but what about Tilt?

    Directv.com? that gives settings for only a round dish

    are you using a 3 LNB slimline or a 5 LNB

    What ever gives you the highest signal strength on sat 119.

    Start at 70*

    It's also built into all directv receivers
    either through the initial setup or if its already a been through the setup,
    -menu
    -settings
    -setup
    -satellite
    -repeat sat setup

    I am going to be setting up a Portable SlimLine 5LNB at UK football game at zip code: 40503. The setting are probably the same as my home which is only 75 miles away so if I go to my Receiver at home it will give all the info I need?

    Thanks
