Just for all the newbies like me out there.. I found the following things to be helpful but did not really notice them in the newbie threads.

1. Make sure to set your LNB correctly in the receiver - KU should be 10750, C should be 5150 and DSS should be 11250

2. Make sure to set the scew on your lnb correctly, make sure your on an active trasnponder

3. Have patience

4. A good satellite finder will go a long way, I had a junk one.. bought something better and voila..

5. Have Patience

6. A small tv is very helpful to watch the smeter during setup.

7. Blind scan is the way to go once you have some smeter activity
