Actually, if it points the same direction, all your setting would likely be the same.
Make sure the mount is solid and the mast is plumb.

Keep in mind, normally the settings are the same all over ones city with very slight adjustments, provided you understand how to set them up.

Good point Chip,
I presumed he was moving the mast from the roof to the same LOCATION as the other ...
Chances are that the two are NOT the same as most were 1 5/8, with the Newer D* stuff all being 2" fro the last 5-10 years now.

Personally, I'd take the D* dish and mast and just move all of it to the location of the old dish.

I think exede and Directv slimline dishes both use a 2 inch pipe
I did a little internet sleuthing. Yes they both use a 2" mast. The exede mast is proprietary in that it's hexagonal, not round, except at the top where the dish mounts it's round.

Only matters what size the pipe is on top.

I think your referring to pole mounts. They sometimes do just to prevent the pole from spinning in the cement
