To Set Up your Satellite TV System Anywhere, you have to buy an additional dish for your Dish Network or DirecTV system. After that, Bolt your dish to a short piece of antenna mast, 3 to 5 feet in length. You need to insert the mast into your tripod. You can tighten the tripod bolts in order to secure it firmly in place. Then, Open the tripod.
You must put it on a flat spot near your location where it has a clear view to the south. You should Place weights on the feet of the tripod to anchor it in place. Next, connect the dish to your satellite receiver using a length of RG-6 satellite cable with weatherproof “boots” over its connectors. You can plug the receiver into a power supply. You have to connect it to the dish and your TV. Turn it on.
Forth, Use your provider’s site, a cell phone app or an online satellite finder to determine the location of your satellite. After that, Examine your dish’s mount and locate the markings for elevation. You need to loosen the bolts with a socket wrench. You must adjust the dish to the correct elevation and tighten the bolts. Then, find the correct bearing for the dish using a pocket compass or cell phone app.
You should turn the dish’s arm and LNB until it points in that approximate direction. Next, enter your receiver’s setup menu. You can watch the signal strength indicator. You have to start turning the dish one degree at a time with turning the whole tripod or loosening bolts on the mount’s azimuth section. You need to tighten them finger-tight after every turn.
Forth, monitor the signal. When the signal decreases, you must turn back in the other direction until you have regained maximum signal strength. At that point, you should tighten the bolts on the dish mount and enjoy your favorite shows.
