I have not installed a dish in years.

Im in upstate NY.

Any info to help save time is much appreciated.

Thanks guys.

What is your zip code. I can get you the proper coordinates with your zip code...
You'll be aiming for the 119 and 110 satellites. Not the 101. Yes, the DUAL LNB, has the built in switch.

Is it a Legacy Twin or DP? Is it perhaps a legacy Quad or DP quad? Those are the only 2 with built-in switches.

OK. For Zip Code 14615 Azimuth(compass direction) is 238 southwest, Elavation is 28deg. And Skew(tilt of dish) is 122. Are you using a signal meter to find the satellites?
What do you exactly mean by 'version' of dish?

...Dish 500, Dish 300. Can't be the S.Dish. I assume your referring to the D.500. That is the only style of dish that can accept the Twin or Quad LNB's.
