The first time I set up my orby dish. I took a small tv to dish along with the receiver. I looked for signal for awhile and noticed the signal meter quit working after a few minutes. I had to get out the set up menu and go back to it again and the signal regestered a little but not much and quit working again. Did the same thing again and the third time I got the signal good and went thru the menue and downloaded the setup at dish . Then I took receiver into house and turned it on and called the number to orby then they downloaded everything and got it working. I relocated the dish closer to house and Since it was already set up before it only took a minute to find the satelite again. Ps when you move the dish a small increment be pstient for 45 seconds so the receiver locks onto the satelite. If you do not give it time to lock on the satelite you might have a hard time getting the receiver to lock on.
