I have standard def directv with standard house dish that I adapted to take apart for storage and easy assembly. All I do is set up the dish, turn the sat receiver on, push Menu on directv remote, down to Parental Favs & Setup, select, down to system setup, select, down to satellite, select, View Signal Strength, select, Signal Meters, select, starts beeping to show signal strength, go outside move dish until beeps are rapid (helps to have someone close to see general direction to point dish), exit on remote, wait for system to update, then turn tv off and enjoy glass of wine. Of course you have dish mounted, so pointing doesn't apply to you. HD receivers are different and require different dish, so what I do may not be of help.
