    OK, I know NOTHING about satellites and the good folks at the geek squads don't have a clue on this subject. I'm trying to get TV channels from Loas, Cambodia, & Thailand for the in-laws but their receiver only gets 2 viewable Thai/Loa channels off the Galaxy 19 sat. I downloaded a satellite finder app on my iphone and all the other Asia satellites on the LyngSat list all come up as "under horizon/not reachable". Does this mean there's no sense in pursuing this? Is their dish not pointing in the right direction? They are using a X2 M1 HD+ FTA DVB-S2 PVR Mini HD Satellite Receiver - New Version, if that helps.

    location is Oklahoma City & I have a list of all free TV from those locations via LyngSat, none of which appear on the satellite receiver set-up page.

    such STB as FTA boxes does allow to add or, if predefined list is full, modify existing sat on that page
