This dish is much harder to aim than the 1 or 3 LNB models. I installed both of those myself, and it took some time but was not difficult to get them aimed correctly. This dish is different. You cannot use the signal meters on your tuners to aim the dish. You need a satellite signal meter. If you have one, you can easily aim it following directions available several places. Also, remember that with this bigger dish is a bigger mounting arm. You cannot use the previous one and just put the new dish on it (which is what I and most people did when going from the original round dish to the oval 3 LNB dish). Last, it really needs to be well supported, so make sure it is connected securely to your house preferably into a stud or roof rafter and use the 2 additional supports.
