Default Setting the cam gear on V10 TDI

I did replace my cam shafts with the engine still in the vehicle. It went smoothly up to the point where I had to set the cam gear, lined up the mark etc. I put the car back together and it fired up and runs great. However, according to my VCDS I am getting the P0341 error code. I think I installed the timing gear a 180 degrees out. Is there a definitive way to know which way the gear goes in? I can not lock in the crank but I can lock in the cams. So, since I can not lock the crank I can be be out 180 degrees. My question is do you set the gear with the cam lobes on the #1 cylinder pointing downward or with the cam lobes pointing upward? If anyone can help me with this procedure it would be greatly appreciated.
