Hi Guys,

I am a real newbie. I need your help desperately.... I have been able to get Echostar 7 and 8 at 110 and 119. But I haven't had any luck with Echo3 at 61.5. I am using an 18" dish with a standard single LNB. I have my elevation set at 41 (my zipcode is 11422). While my "Level" is at 79, my signal "Quality" is a big fat zero. I have scanned the entire southeast and southwest skies. The azimuth is supposed to be at 175 from north, right? that's southeast, right?..... Please somebody tell me what I am doing wrong. Pardon my ignorance, but I heard about a "transponder" setting on my receiver; what's that? Thanks in advance for your help.

If you want the Dish 101 channel so bad, watch it on 119 (thats really the only free thing on 61.5)


I'm sick of these stealers....

Hi I'm a newbie...almost every hack posts starts that way
