I'm having trouble aiming my SL5 dish. I can only get 68% on sat 101 transponder 1, 65% on sat 119 transponder 1 and sometimes 50% on sat 110 transponder 1. Not acquired on Sats 99 and 103.
?Also, what transponder is best to use when trying to aim?

Also, if you don't have a swm lnb, the type with only one connection, make sure you are using a bbc on each line you have connected. That is, unless you are using a model 23 receiver or dvr.
If he had a phase III dish, that would mean 99 and 103 would not even appear in the satellite strength list, ......and there are many channels still on 119. as well as several cities locals, the ethnic package is on 119, several religious and music channels.
The OPs dish is probably just out of alignment, a well aligned dish will have many transponders (no all) in the high 90s or even 100. With 70s on 101, he'll never get 99 and 103.
