    Dish 500 Skew

    I'm preparing for a DIY Dish Network install. I have a question about the skew settings for a Dish 500. The skew settings on Dish's website show the settings for a Dish 500+, but not for a Dish 500. Are the settings the same?

    Yes. Same settings. Set skew before mounting and don't adjust again.
    Get mast plumb.
    Just adjust azimuth and elevation.

    No they are not.
    Go to dish point setup in your dish Rec for settings on Dish 500

    You could always call dish... and tell them some crazy stuff or just straight out ask a rep what the setting should be..

    For a Dish 500 just go into the Dish Point Screen and enter your zipcode and select a D500.
