if you cant skew the dish, you skew the LNB. You twist it depending on how much skew you need

check out thelist at the top....enter your zip and it will tell you the skew for each satellite in your area. The closer to your true south it is the closer to 0 it will be

Thanks for the added info.. so one question about the "twist", how do I know what position is 0 degrees, in other words how do I initially orient the LNB.. this is the mini lnbf recommended by Anole. I'm thinking the coax connection should face down and that should be zero degrees, then I skew from there by turning the lnbf...

Yes, that is correct.
Pretty simple, eh? :up
But, I'm glad you asked.
Some of the dual-band LNBs are way wierd! . . . and poorly documented.
