alright, so im on ebay looking at a 26$ meter and im wondering how to hook it up...i have the new style Dish pro plus LNB and if i wanna find a satelite, would i plug the meter into one of the ports(for ex., i want to find 119) i would plug it in where 119 port is? this meter only shows the signal strength and its not like the expensive ones where you can shreach the sat you finding right on the meter. i know it has a built-in switch but thats only to use 3 recievers. i will include the site on the meter i found and maybe you guys can help me out

Straight forward - the port labeled "LNB" goes to the LNB, the one label "REC" goes to either the battery thingy (looks like something for 2 9V batteries) or on down to your satellite receiver for power.

That builtin compass looks next to useless.

Yes - you would put this on the LNB that your trying to aim.

I have an analog version of this and it works just fine (no power adapter, however).

so, i can find all three sats at the same time? i wanna just find the 119 because 110 is no problem...could i just put a cable into the 119 port(i have 4 ports, 3 are sat ports, one is input for another lnb) and find just that one sat, the 119? and leave the other two alone?

Looks like you should check for the compass direction from the receiver's point dish screen, it should show on the compass on the front of the finder. Nothing I saw tells you how to change it. I would hope there is something on the directions you got with the meter.
