I don't see how it would be a factor. If you're looking at the correct
switch port and you get signal and a correct NIT you should have a lock. The
key here is the switch.

That's fine to LNB's that are in-line with the motor, but some/alot of
us have more than one LNB and they could be 4.5 degres offset to the
left or right of the motor position.
