You don't need to run the check switch test every time you set up, only when you change equipment. It will take a really long time to run if you're not on the satellites. I haven't run it in a very long time and I full time so I move around a lot.
Using the tin foil I get it aimed at 119 then maybe play with the skew to peak out the others (after removing the foil).
I should add that I am using an upside down dish so the usual aiming numbers aren't quite the same.

If you get a 1000.2 triple yoke and a DPP single LNB, you swap the bracket on the dish, put on triple, insert LNB in the center spot, tune sat 119. Easy peasy! Both available relatively cheap on eBay.
