Maybe they are on Dish instead of DirecTV.
Go to dishpointer.com and put in the address, the satellite you are needing and it will give you the coordinates of where it should be pointed.
DirecTV customer since 1996 - Current :Slimline 3 SWM, HR24-100 Component cables to 46" Samsung LCD & Optical Cable to Yamaha AVR, H21-200 HDMI to Yamaha AVR & HDMI to 52" Mitsubishi LCD

Im probably gonna get reemed for this but, my parents Directv dish is pointed SE and I have noticed new ones pointed SW. How come the change?
If you and your parents are in Montana, almost all DIRECTV dishes should be pointing at 101w. So if you're in Montana that would mean the dishes should be pointing slightly to the SE. The only exceptions are the Phase III triple sat. dish primarily for Spanish SD customers centered on 110w which would be due south at your location and the international dish pointed at 95w which is SE at your locale.
Are you sure you are not mistaking Dish Network dishes which may be aimed at either their western or eastern arcs?

Do not worry about that, there is no such thing as a stupid question. You wont find a better group of helpful people than you will here.
Thats excellent to hear! Im sure I will have more questions in the future.
