ok,

I have installed my dish already, but had to move it recently. Now it's on a 8 foot mast. The mast is level in the vertical direction. I have a dish 500 with legacy LNBs and sw-21 switches. I have removed the switches and tried getting the signal on the 119 and 110. I am successfull at finding those satellites individually, but when i try to acquire both, I fail.

My angles are this:

For the dish 500 says:
Azimuth Angle: 162
Elevation Angle: 51
Skew: 86

For just the 119 bird:
Azimuth Angle is: 170
Elevation Angle: 51
Skew: n/a

For just the 110 bird:
Azimuth Angle is: 154
Elevation Angle: 51
Skew: n/a

So, do I first find one of the birds then change my skew to try and get the other bird. Need some quick tips on how to reinstall this damn than, cause I can't remember how I did it the first time.
