Title: finding DTV Satellite @ lake home
Post by yukonking123 on Aug 21st, 2006 at 7:11pm
My son and I have been trying to set up our Directv satellite receiver at our lake home about 25 miles from our primary residence..we are paying for 3 rcvrs and don't wish to open a new account.  We have a strong signal but our programming is all out of whack.   Our Samsung rcvr said we are on the wrong bird.  We have set up our dish right beside our neighbors' and he has access so we are getting a bit frustrated.   Have the proper long and lat for the location and used your handy dandy little sat finder but don't know which DTv bird is the right one.     Long is 39 18 04 01  and Lat is
                                                86 07 44 71...... HELP!!!

You're addressing a satellite Internet forum. You'll quite likely have much more success in your endeavors by enquiring at a DirecTV forum. See the Google Search box in the upper right.

Might not be much help, because I don't know how many LNBs you have. With one, you point dead at the satellite, with multiple, you point mid-way between the extremes to catch them both/all.
