Default Echostar 110/119 Vs Nimiq 1

Hi, I have right now the two satellites Nimiq and Echostar 110 set up
on my receiver Viewsat PRO but for a long time now, only Echostar 110
has been working and I was wondering if I should just change Nimiq to
Echostar 119. By doing this would I get more channels? Where can I see
the list of these new channels?

thank you,

mochoa

If you are able to it would be a good idea to point at 119.It is not sure when Bev will be back up.Below is a web address to Lyngsat.If you use the SID option will show all channels on 119 and other sats.

DISH Network on Anik F3 & EchoStar 7 at 119.0W - LyngSat

Bev and DN are two different providers.There is allot of channels on Bev that you not see on DN and the other way way around.

I've also changed from B** to 119, at least you can watch more hockey games and watch ppv's live, but now it sounds like everythings going down by April. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

Default Down as well?

I like the idea of having more of the PPV specially the Wrestling and Hockey. Also the movies and shows. So is it for sure that it will go down too? I hope not because that would be a big lost since cable sucks!

You should definitely aim your other dish to 119W. BEV has been down for a while and we don't know how long is it going to be before we see a fix for BEV if ever. Enjoy DN while it lasts, here is a link on how to re-aim your dish from BEV to DN. http://www.ftaprofessionals.tv/dishe...eceive-dn.html

Default Can't find it

I went yesterday up to the roof since the weather was nice but for some reason I couldn't find the satellite Echostar 7 119, besides the 110 I found Echostar 5 129. I'm assuming the missing one is on a lower elevation so I am planing to do it as soon as the weater is good again. I will move the dish up to the chimney and hopefuly I will find it. If you guys have any suggestions please pass them on.

thank you all

Elevation is about the same, you should get 119 by moving it to the west. They are not that far apart.
