I have DN right now, but was planning on switching to B*V to check it out, but before i do just want to make sure i'm doing it right.

is all i have to do is move my dish from 110 to 92, or 82, and then enter the bev keys??

now my dish has the 2 heads on it, i get 110 and 119, so i guess when i move to bev, that 1 head will pretty much be dead.

NO...U can get BOTH Bev 82 and 91...instead of the present DN 110-119...notice all are 9 degrees apart, so this should be VERY easy for U..and then do a Bev key entry and CHANGE the antenna/dish settings in your receiver to show Bev 82(nimiq2) on port #1 and 91(nimiq 1-3) on port #2 , instead of present 119-#1 and 110-#2..and of course scan the 82-91 satellites

You should be able to get 91 and 82 both with two LNBs. Just would need little finer adjustment to pick both birds. Good luck..

tried moving the dish from left to right, and got nothing to work, can't find bev.

do i also have to change the skew? (i think thats what its called, the up and down part of the dish)

you dont want to go left to right, you want to go right to left. believe SatScanner said it was 22-28 deg. LEFT of DN for BEV.

If 110/119 is 12:00 O'clock (LNBF) point to 12:00
Move Dish to 10:00 O'clock (LNBF) point to 10:00

If that doesn't work try dish to 10:30
