Hey guys, high school nerd here. I'm mostly a DirecTV guru, but this time I need help with Dish Network. I'm moving into my uncles house temporarily and he has Dish. I am going to pack up all of the Dish stuff and put it in the attic, Im either going to get Comcast transferred out there or get DirecTV, I don't like that I have to get the most advanced package (America Top 250) in order to get my favorite channels where they come standard with Comcast and DirecTV. I'm also not crazy about the VIP 722k that's already there, the remote on TV 2 sucks, you have to stand in the hall to get it to work. I have a Slimline dish with a SWM LNB that I already know how to point and all that. Im going to mount the DTV dish where the Dish 1000.4 is on the roof. Here's the deal, when we move out, I need to put the Dish stuff back, but I'm gonna tripod mount the DirecTV if I can't realign the Dish Turbo HD which is up on the roof. I have an Accutrac 22 Pro MKII meter, and a Dish 1000.4 with LNBs that look at the eastern arc satellites. How do you point it with an Accutrac 22 Pro MKII?

I'm very confused at what your question is here.

It sounds like you are saying that you have a Dish aligned correctly, but you don't want to use it... instead, you are going to sign up for DirecTV and install your own dish for that, and you know how to install and align that.

Then, later at some point in the future you are going to put the Dish stuff back... but you are asking now how to align the Dish setup?

Am I understanding correctly?

He posted on another site, his dad has Dish with account on hold, he wants to take Dish down, replace it with Direct and when his dad returns, put the Dish stuff back. IMO he should leave Dish in place and use temp setup for Direct.

Leave the Dish dish in place.
