    The SWM system needs the power inserter hooked up to communicate with the dish.

    In the Menu,
    Go to Settings, Satellite, Setup or Repeat Satellite Setup. The place to put in your sip code is there.

    If you are using the H25 signal meter, there is a "+" and "-" sign to toggle satellites

    Once 101 is found and peaked and the dish tilt or skew setting correct, 99 and 103 should fall in line as far as coarse adjustments. You must then fine tune the azimuth and elevation using the dish's vernier adjustments for best signal strength readings on 99( c ), 103(ca), and 103(cb). Don't really worry about the 99 and 103 "(s)" screens.

    Yes, as it is for all Slimline-3 (SL-3) dishes regardless of location.
