Hi,
I recently bought a universal LNB so that I could receive Galaxy 19 Ku band on a blue VeTV HD dish. DishPointer says that I need to set my LNB's skew to -22. However, my LNB only shows options between 12 and -12. Should I keep turning it and guesstimate when it's at -22? Thank you.

Correct, and then once you find the satellite you can fine tune the skew.

EDIT: I don't know anything about a VeTV HD dish, but if it is an elliptical dish, you skew the dish, not the LNB.

That is great advice from Keith Brannen. I never heard of a VeTV dish before so i googled it and all the images i see show an elliptical dish. So you skew the dish, not the LNB. Set the LNB to Zero in the LNB holder and skew the dish itself.

Also in the receiver's antenna set-up menu make sure to set the LNB L.O. Frequency to 9750/10600 to match the universal LNB you are using. Do not use the 10750 setting as that is for a Standard LNB. With most modern receivers you can choose LNB type Universal and it will set the L.O to 9750/10600.

Good luck AZ1234
