I assume that you get sat 119.
If so, hit menu - 6 - 1 - 1 point dish screen, check satellite 119, transponder 7. If it shows spotbeam 4 and you have a decent signal, you're golden.

If SD channels are all that you want, you might try the 110 satellite on transponders 26 and 31. It appears that you are out of luck for HD.

For some unknown reason 119tp7 in the Bay Area is reading 0 on some if not all receivers.
