I have a friend who ended their service with Dish Network and went with Direct TV.

The Dish equipment is theirs. They want to aim the dish (dish 500 I think ) to 61.5 to get 3ABN as a PI channel.

What are the steps to aim a duel satellite dish to a single satellite?

Should I disconnect the switch and just run the coax straight to one of the lnb's? Then input dish 300 on the receiver?

yes. Hook the cable to the LEFT (if behind the dish) LNB. Dial in Dish 300 on the reciever to get the coordinates. Skew should be 90 so the LNB's are the same (straight across)....the azimuth will be off a little bit due to the LNB not being straight down the arm.

I would do a check switch first with no cable hooked up to clear out the switch setup.
