Hopefully you got it. but here are a few tips. Make sure the back of the J pole (mounting pole) is level. It has to be or it will never work.
Then with the dish off the J pole set the elevation on the neck of the dish. Lock down the elevation. Then set the dish on the J pole. Hook up the wires to LNB ....
Also if you can, use one cable with no spliters or adapters Form the LNB to the back of the receiver. Because if you hook one of them up wrong your receiver will never get a signal It is also a very common mistake
If the J pole neck is level, your elevation is correct, you will need to slowly spin the dish towards 215 South west
hope this helps

I need some advice on installing a satellite dish i went and bought a compass and I'm pretty sure I've got the pointing part figured out but does it have to be mounted at a certain height I've tried and tried but cannot get any signal???
