Portable Dish 500

We purchased a portable Dish 500 from Amazon. When it arrived it was completely unassembled. We managed to assemble the components, but when it comes to actually wiring the dish, we are at a loss. The instructions that came with it are useless. Has anyone had any experience with this?

A couple other questions. What reciever are you using? Is it a Dish Plus LNB? Really need to know those things before your question can be answered.

X2, plus always remember, that the dish HAS TO BE LEVEL, otherwise your going to have a difficult time finding the satelite.
