Well not an emergency, but can you use a Dish 300, w/ DishPro LNB to get 129? Where as 129 has a poor signal on D1000. If so, what is the way I could make this thing work, my zip is 29642, and there is no skew on this dish mount, but there is elevation markings, however I can make this dish do what it needs to do to be turned and angled to get 129 if this is possible. Thanks. :)

Yes, it will work fine. If you're looking to improve a D1000 install, just yank the DP-Dual from the 1000 and mount it on the D300 (or even better, a D500 with I-adapter from DishStore.net). Now just "stretch" the jumper that runs between the two D1000 LNBs and you're done.

How would I angle this Dish 300 to get 129, does it have to be sideways like the D1000 or what? I need to know the elevation as well.

No clue what you mean by "sideways".

You get the azimuth & elevation numbers from your receiver's Point Dish screen.

By "sideways" he's referring to the skew, which is unnecessary with a single circular LNBF. The skew is necessary on the dishes with multiple LNBFs because the elevations for each satellite are different, one side higher than the other.
