    Trying to setup a new dish where I store my RV but can only get transponders 22, 25-32 on satellite 101. They are all in the high 90's but nothing else will come in. Anyone have any ideas?

    You are most likely pointed at the 110 satellite. Try turning it 9 degrees to the East and see what you get.
    Turn it very slowly and let it have a few seconds for each degree to acquire the signal.

    Aren't those the 119 transponders?

    I honestly do not know, but, he is pointing at the wrong one, too far west.

    wrong - it's 119W !

    FYI, try read Gary Toma spread sheets and you'll post factual info, not WAG like this

    Try posting something other than criticism and help someone sometime. Almost every post you make is hitting on the poster and it is not just me.
    I asked you before and I am saying it again, do not reply to my posts.

    OK. Anyone who did set DTV antenna/IRD at least once, knew only 110W has 3 DSS tpns, what only DTV IRD can lock to. If he is never seen sat level screens for 101W, 110W, 119W he must dig for the knowledge and should already discovered very informative table by Gary ...

    I'm sure many of us have only set up a 3 lnb dish so 110 and 119 wouldn't be involved.

    then check your signal level screens and you'll be surprised to discover 110/119 with 0 and N/A values ...
    but major point is not turn to WAG well known facts

    How do you check something that isn't there? 110 and 119 don't show up in a 3 lnb system. If they do you haven't completed the setup.

    Directv had a 3LNB dish that picked up satellites at 101, 110 & 119. It used a "Sat C kit to upconvert the 3 channels it owned from the 110 location to appear on 119. This was the original 3 satellite dish. The "Slimline" dish was later introduced to receive from 5 satellite positions. Today the Slimline 3 satellite dish still uses 3 of those 5 positions but 2 are Ka band satellites
