I just checked I think I may be able to repoint my 119 and 110 dish setup to the ea 72.7 and 77. Just a few ?s . Do I need to disconnect the 61.5 wing dish first before moving the 119/110 . I believe both dish 500 are dish pro and not legacy dishes. On the 119/110 dish i checked using the calculator from this site. Here is what get 72.7 get 48.6,159.5 and163.2. 77 location 49.8,167.1 and 170.6. Which azimuth should I set 48.6 or 49.8. Thanks for help in advance. That way I can save the $15 set for Mondays install. Which we have about 4 inches of snow. Think probably they will late no show at all.

There is a similar thread that I started yesterday. There is some pointing information in that thread that would answer your questions.

http://www.satelliteguys.us/dish-network-forum/202963-repoint-dish-500-61-5-72-7-a.html

Others have confirmed that a dish 500 can be pointed at 61.5/72.7 succesfully; however no one has yet confirmed that they have had success in pointing at 72.7/77.

Answer on 72.7/77 NO. The sats are too close together for a 500 LNB to see both.

:eek:Set up Dish500 to 61.5 and 72. Don't forget to reset your skew.
Set up a wing dish (300 or 500) and point to 77 and connect to input of 61.5/72 dish.

Unless your locals are on 77, there is not much useful programming located there (YET).
I set up Dish500 to catch 61.5 and 72 and seem to get most everything
