Those are on Galaxy 25 at 93 west.
I'm thinking you actually hit the Nimiq at 91 west, it uses many of the same Transponders as the DishNet Sats.

Being that close to the US/Mexico border its possible he is picking up the Echo4 (Dish Mexico) too

But as downlink mention the receiver will lock the stream if its MPEG2 or 4. When you scan channels, they will show on the radio side on a CS5000

Luis: Check dishpointer to see where your antenna should be, it'll give you info about the inclination you have to give it, assuming your setup it's leveled.

Cheers

luis do you have an active transponder entered in your receiver for AMC5? With the info entered, and using your linear lnbf you should be able to find the satellite. Try 12177 H 20,500SR it's a good strong signal.
