All you really need to do is find the 101 and the 99 and 103 should fall into place ... dither if needed.

I think I would try using the recvr meter first, before I would invest in a meter. Unless your setting it up quite often.

Most of these meters do not tell you which Sat it is hitting.

This is the key!...Most meters just find a signal....That isn't much help when looking at the Clark belt....There are dozens that can be seen...Use your STB as it will tell you which satellite by name your aimed at.

On your STB, start on the 101 Sat, peak, if you get numbers on the high 80 and 90s, your on the right sat.

Thats the thing, you can get a meter and find the signal and go inside and think you will have picture and find that you dont because its on another Sat in the same area.

Yup. I agree 100%

Unless your going to spend $300-$400 on a real meter like an AIM

Works for me every time.....Sorry I get a picture and I know were its aimed....I can lock on other satellites and get great signal no picture.
A STB doesn't tell you what satellite you are pointed at.
