Sat 101 - 91-100 on all transponders
Sat 110 - 95, 95, 96 and a lot of N/A
Sat 119 - Lots of N/A and 96-98
Sat 99c - 92-95 lots of N/A
Sat 99s - 50, 95, 65, 92, 52, 98, some N/A, 0, 0, 0, 0, more N/A


Under signal meeter I get 50% on 99S and 72% on 103S. 95% on 103C

Will I have issues in the future? Should I try to tweak it myself or have DirecTV tweak it fo $75?

99s and 103s are spot beams for LiL channels. as long as your 99c and 103c are in the 80s and 90s, yer golden

Those readings sound fine. If you post back with your signal readings for each satellite's transponders (and both tuners if applicable) we can tell you for sure. You'll find these readings under "Menu" -> "Setup" -> "System Setup" -> Satellite -> "View Signal Strength".

Fill in your readings for each satellite and tuner using these examples. A properly aligned dish will show 80-90s on most of the relevant transponders (although some will be low or zero):
