what do I need to do to change dish alignment to improve satellite 103 reception when 101 is good

I had to move my dish due to a roof leak. I now have great signal on satellite 101 but others are not as good and some channels are giving error code 771. Can you give me advise on what I need to do or move to bring in other signals?

Here are the signal numbers from the receiver.

101

1-8: 95 96 96 0 94 96 96 98

9-16: 95 95 95 42 95 96 96 98

17-24: 95 95 96 30 94 97 96 98

25-32: 95 83 96 97 95 97 96 98

99{ca}

1-8: N/A

9-16: 34 42 33 44 31 43 24 40

17-24: 27 42 27 42 27 42 27 43

25-32: N/A

99{cb}

1-8: 60 58 55 58 58 56 58 60

9-16: 59 60 57 60 66 59 N/A N/A

There are some useful videos on Youtube to help you align your dish.

Thanks for the video. What Im trying to see is if someone knows which way I need to go as far and up/down or left/right or which adjustments to start with instead of just going out and just winging it since the 101 is very good. Can you give any feedback?

@everyoneknowsjeff There's no way to know which way you need to dither the dish. Those fine tuning dials allow you to tweak the azimuth and elevation very slightly. So you just tweak one and see if you're getting stronger signals on 99/103. Try both directions to maximize the signal. I can't really explain it any better than the video. Good luck.

You need to tweak (dither) the dish alignment to maximize 99 and 103º readings. See if this video helps: https://youtu.be/QA1krU8eo8E
