Hello, my name is Rusty. Sorry to hear you're having trouble. I can help you. Sorry for the delay, since your question was in the wrong category, I didn't see it until now.

Aligning without a signal meter is difficult, but it can be done. This is a two person job if you cannot see your TV from the satellite dish.

  1. Press the menu button on your remote.
  2. Select Settings and Help on the left hand menu.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Select Satellite on the left hand menu.
  5. Select View Signal Strength on the bottom right-hand screen (scroll to it using the arrows on your remote).
  6. Select Signal Meters on the bottom right-hand screen.

Now that you have your signal meters, you can optimize your signal. Start in the SE sky, move West.
