    Can anyone tell me and easy to find the name of the DTV satellite I use? The DTV website has no info on this I can find. I use one box in my RV with a portable dish, so it would be easier if I know what bird to look for on SatBeams.

    My ZIP code is 95345. I don't have a meter that names the satellite to do so. I have been using the SatBeams website to narrow it down DTV9 or DTV11 by comparing mag. azimuths between SatBeams and DTV Dish Pointer, but that is approximate because they are close, so I am still not sure.

    You can usually just point it at the 101 orbital slot and the other ones will just fall into place.
