first of all, zip code 52144, 211K with 1000.2. I have marked where I get a good signal on 119, but can't get 110, & 129 to lock in to there respective satellites. I currently have 209, 35 elevation 112 skew. how much do I move the dish to acquire all 3.

per dishpointer I get
33 elevation
217 azimuth
116 skew

so you might be getting the 119 sat on the 129 LNB so move a smidge west and down

Should I be using a 1000 instead of a 500? I personally have a 500 @ home and have all sat. locked in.

Cover the outside 2 lnb's with aluminum foil to make sure you are receiveing 119 with the center lnb.

After that you should be able to hone in on the outer two satellites.
