Did you run a check switch?

Disconnect cable from rear of receiver, run check switch to clear satellites from receiver memory.

Re-run check switch with cable connected to get correct satellites in receiver.

Skew is 69, Elevation is 55, Azimuth is 159 for Auburndale so your settings are WAY off

A switch check has to be performed in order for the box to see signal

Thanks a mill HipKat. I assume I will receive the same numbers once I do a check switch on the receiver without the cable connected as I learned from Jim

Thanks you Ronz !! I will run a check switch without the cable connected then all will be better. I didn't know the Box had to be cleared from previous SAT's.
