With E10 and prior spot satellites the sX number meant beam X hitting the earth ... with "5s10" and "7s10" reaching the same basic "s10" footprint. "sX" on E12 is the uplink ... for example "s14" being uplinked from Chicago. Unfortunately with that numbering "5s14" and "7s14" do NOT cover the same area "s14" ... "5s14" is aimed more at Chicago-Milwaukee and "7s14" is aimed more at Detroit-Cleveland.
But as long as the numbers are consistent within the chart it shouldn't be too much of a problem, except for the guy who can get "7s14" in Cleveland and wonders why he can't get "5s14" when the s14 is the same.
For a slightly out of date page mapping TIDs to Rainbow's numbering at 61.5 (with appropriate numbers for the beams based on where they are received instead of uplink center) visit http://jameslong.name/e615.html .
There are also links to areal photos of all the current uplink centers I could find for DISH Network on that page.
