    What do you mean by "TV settings"?

    Settings on your actual TV (display) or do you mean either the dish's azimuth, elevation and skew or the receiver's internal settings?

    when i go to satellite setup, it asks for my dish type and switch type. im not sure which one i use and there is a pretty large list of dish types.

    i live in south south texas is that makes a difference.

    OK so you need the internal receiver / dish setup.

    You have a multi LNB / 5LNB and you DO NOT have a SWM

    I was choosing LBN3. Do the degrees matter? Because I know that 3LBN was there 3 different times with a degree after it. Do i choose the normal 5LBN?

    It also had Slimeline-3S (SWM) and Slimline-5S(SWM). I tried all the slimlines settings and kept getting errors on the setup and it would make me change my settings.

    If you don't have a SWM and only have the one dish, use the Slimline-5 setting.
