Dish Align Description

10

Dish Align is a simple yet powerful app for alignment of the satellite dish. It allows you to select exact location of the dish and requested satellite, them shows you you can align the dish to get proper signals.
It has a built-in compass specially designed to simulate the dish as your iPhone, so you will get the exact direction of the dish to be pointed.

As of version 1.2, Dish Align supports dynamic satellite list. If changes need to be done to satellite list or a satellite positioned incorrectly, drop us a line in Feedback section.

There is a small ad at the bottom of page which keeps the production going and make the app free. However if you don't like it, upgrade to No Ad version and all advertisements will be gone.

    My DISH antenna automatically finds the satellites so I used the app to make sure my rig is in the correct orientation between trees. The first time I used the app I thought I must have done something wrong, but the dish locked onto that sat's anyway so I forgot about the incident. Now at my next campsite there are lots of trees so I needed an accurate assessment of the satellite locations. I found a site with a nice clearing right where the app points to for 110W, 119W and 129W. But it was not correct! My Winegard 1000 pointed 30 degrees more eastward and locked onto the satellites- even with the trees in the way. Since then with the wind moving the trees I have lost my signal and it is too much effort to move the rig. Plus I can not use this app to reliably find the satellites. And yes, I have checked the app several times since then and it points right at the clear space without trees. I did this while standing on my rig at the Dish antenna for one of these rechecks. Something is wrong with the logic and or math of this program considering these satellites are of the most common used for the Dish Network in the Western states.

    I don't mean for this post to be published, as I think this is a nice program but with a huge bug. I am giving it a one star for the frustration it caused me. I wasted more than two hours of my time trying to align my dish when I found out that the information give for LNB polarization angle was wrong. My address is in USA zip code 95131. I was aligning my dish to Galaxy 19, 97W. Your program gave me an angle of -28.85 angle, (front view of dish), which twists the LNB 28 degrees counter clockwise. Instead I had to turn my LNB +28.85 degrees (clockwise) to capture the correct signal. Had the program given me the correct info, I would have been done in 15min instead of spending more than two hours on the roof of my house. Also, why does the program print the angle on top of the diagram making it hard to read? I had zoom in to be able to read the angle. The solution to this fix. Is that your diagram should not say "view from front". It should say "view from behind the dish". Then the angle of -28.85 would be accurate.

    I kept getting wrong results and finally figured out you there is some mixup between magnetic and true north. If you have the compass app set for tru north, then the compass on Dish Align will point off about 10°. You have to have your compass app set to use magnetic north to get the dish align compass display to match the satellite info. It seems Dish Align is not properly reading the Compass. Example: where I am a sat is at 180° true N, 169° mag N. if Compass set to true N and rotated to 180°, DA compass says sat is 13° west. If Compass set to mag N and rotated to 180°, DA compass says sat is right ahead. I'm not sure how to interpret this but something is wrong.
