You may already have..but did you run the check switch each time?Once it locks in one sat then run the test.

IF you are not level and plumb on your dish install you will get the wrong sats in the wrong place, or not at all in your case. You should have the following in your checkswitch in this order: 77/72.7/61.5

I had a similar problem trying to install my Aunt's 1000.2 sat dish and the pole was not level. I got 119 in the place of 110 and no 129. Once I got it level and plumb and locked in place the three sats came in like a charm.

If you are only picking up one satellite at a time it sounds to me like your skew is not set correctly. Probably set at 90 with no skew. Find out what the skew is in your area.

There should be installation instructions that come with the dish complete with azimuth, elevation and skews by zipcode. Simply pick your zipcode and plug in the proper numbers and you should be able to install your own dish. OF course a sat meter helps tremendously, if you got one.
