buy a sat finder and use that its easy

the main thing to do is make sure the bracket u r useing is perfectly straight use a spirit level
and use it in 3 planes
(move it around the pole)
once u know this is perfect
then point ur dish a 1deg west
use the sat finder to locate 1 west
and lock the dish
when u search for other sats they should all come in

Have you entered your lon and lat in the box??
Also set the motor bracket for your lat??

Sounds like you are completly missing the arc if you are getting nothing m8
