Since I am in an area, where I have lost my BEV service, I need to replace it. But have never tried a self umstallation.

All the wires are in place, so I just need to replace the dish, and of course a different reciever. I understand azmith and elevation; but don't understand "skew" ( sp?). Any help out there? :confused:

Skew is just an adjustment tilting the dish to accomodate the satellites positions regarding the curvature of the earth. If you see that az and el will give you a LOS (line of sight) to one satellite then you can see how two or more locks would be possible if the satellites are close and the dish / LNB can sort the signals.

All skew is is a tilt cabability built into the dish to allow a specific angle to be dialed in to allow a better hit of this group of satellites, parked at different distances but on the same plane. Skew is specific to the long & lat of the dish as is az & el.
