    Good afternoon, I'm trying to install a HR24-200 receiver and having trouble getting it setup. What setting do I enter for dish type (i have a slimline 3lnb) RB/INTL, Switch type, Tuners?

    Do you have the power inserter installed ?
    Assuming you do,
    Unplug the power from the receiver ( turning it off will not work ),
    wait a couple of minutes and plug it into the wall.
    One of the first things they do when they have lost power is to check everything.
    It should find the LNB that you have and set it by itself.

    I do have the power inserter installed. It looks like it set everything but now I can't get any sat reception. I have checked settings for my location and moved dish around but not picking anything up.

    The satellite is a long way off. The width of a pencil mark on the dials is probably off by hundreds of feet.
    Most people are usually about 10° to far to the west.
    Note that there is a mark for elevation, not the center of the bolt head.
    Move the dish a tiny bit and give it 3 to 5 seconds to connect, then move it again.
