You should be able to see tr 6. When the SC map downloads you will see the barker channel 299

I am using the 920 4dtv receiver and i get the free channels on E2 but nothing on E1. so you're saying that the SC maps have to load before i would be able to find this satellite?

If you have a 920 and download the SC maps from F1; there is a good chance your TDT will hit the unlucky 1920 number. This causes all kinds of nicieties including missing services + dropping of satellites. A Master Reset s the only cure then.

Got need to go to G0 and do a reset. You should not be seeing E2 ( at least the Ku side)
There is CBC stuff analog on 17 and 23 of F1 C-band.

from what I see at Telesat's web site the E1 Ku side
cannot even reach orlando... and New Orleans is on the fringe... (this is an old Weak Bird was built September 26, 1991) I was told that you can D/L the channel map from either F1 & E2 (for the french peoples that only have a single LNB pointed at E2)

Good Luck

Obviously your TDT has hit 1920. It will soon hit 1920 again after a MR if you keep going to F1 and E2
