    Only if you have a dish that sees 119.

    Because wikipedia isn't a credible source.

    Check the signal strength on 119. I had a 5 LNB, which technically "sees" 119, but on the east coast, 119 is very low on the horizon, so I never could watch anything on 119. Since there is nothing for the US market on 110 and nothing I care about on 119, I swapped out the 5 LNB for a 3 LNB, which only sees 99, 101, and 103.

    Wednesday hasn't been the norm for a while now.
    It depends what type of "international" dish you're talking about. The one that gets 119 for the Spanish and former Jadeworld package, or the one that gets 95 for the Brazilian, Filipino, Indian, Korean, Russian, Mandarin and Vietnamese packages?

    It annoys me when someone says that. It is a very credible source and, over time, has been proven to be quite accurate. However, like any other source, it is not perfect and things that are changing should not be assumed to be correct. If wikipedia is not a credible source, then no such animal exists anywhere.

    If it is a separate dish, and you got it to watch cricket, then I expect it is aimed at the 95 slot, but that is easy enouth to tell. Is the dish pointing to the east of the main dish or to the west of the main dish? If it is pointing to the west of your main dish, then it is 119. If it is pointing to the east of your main dish, then it is 95.

    If you have an oval main dish with a 5 lnb, then it will see 119 if there are no trees or tall buildings in the way. Since Florida has no hills, I assume there are no hills in the way. All you need to do to know for sure is go to "Menu", "Settings & Help", "Settings", "Sattellite", "View Signal Strength" and see if you get a signal on 119. If 119 does not show up, then you do not see 119.

    my main dish doesn't see 119, i checked. the international dish is currently not turned on so i can't check its menu. as for direction, it looks like its pointed in the same direction as my main dish.

    A friend from high school said he was a Noble Peace Prize winner and a famous notable alumni on our high school's Wiki site.It was there about a year. That's a credible site to you? Writing a research paper and citing Wiki will get you laughed out of a professor's office. It's a great site for a lot of information, but my academic side makes me see it differently.

    The main dish is centered on 101, so the international dish should point slightly to the east of it.

    He's not a friend; he's a head case.


    Following parts of this thread, at least one person asked about the HD additions possibly being this week.

    I would guess, if the answer is yes, Thursday [08.15.2013] would match up with Playboy TV. The ordering screen is scheduled to move to ch. 559 on that day/date. So, perhaps, it would be that day for Playboy TV HD.
