Send it to the reference point/zero, then try finding the sats again.

Hi,
Was the Technomate definitely using USALS, or was it using DiSEqC 1.2 directly?

Maybe its not aligned properly, and bloke used DiSEqC to manually adjust position, or alternatively maybe he edited the sat positions in 'Satellite Setup' to save him adjusting the dish properly.
