The DirecTV/Dishnotwork LNB use a L.O. of 11250

If you have a single LNB DirecTV dish, its probably pointed at 101w, which is useless for FTA.

Repoint your dish to 119w, and you'll get NASA, Dish Network 101 (Dish welcome channel), a religious channel, a couple of slate channels, and a LOT of music on the audio channels.

Note the LO is 11250 instead of 10750. If you have an dish network receiver it can be used to get the best signal. No sub needed to use the signal menu.

Good luck.
