Hi Everything:

I have exchange my ExpressVu 6000 for a Dish 6000 for Dishnet. My intention is to watch only Showtime HDTV with regular subscription to Dishnetwork. I understand there is a particular Sat. which carries the HDTV Transponder. I need instructions on the vertical and hortizontal angles of aiming to pick up the signal. What is the name of that sat. Please help and thanks in advance!

You won't be watching much HD if you limit it to Showtime...almost all of their 16:9 programming is upconverted.

All your dish pointing needs can be met at dbsforums.com - try this link to the az/el calculator
http://www.dbsforums.com/azel.html


You will first need to find your latitude/longitude which you can get from http://www.mapblast.com


Plug that into the az/el calculator and select Echostar III which is at the 61.5 orbital position. That is where all of the HDTV content is (duplicated at 148 but you probably can't see that one).
