I thought I would try setting up a spare dish I have to receive the Dish free preview on the Discovery HD channel. I used the look up chart to get an elevation of 37 deg. and an azimuth of 154 deg. The magnetic deviation chart tells me to add 8 deg for my area (Kitchener) for a mag bearing of 162 deg. I can't get it to find anything. Am I doing something wrong on my calculations (ie should it be 154-8 for 146 deg). Any suggestions. I don't feel like messing around with this too much for one month only.

When looking for that satellite do not use TPS 1,3,9,11,17,19,21,24,26 or 31...these transponder are not used so you will not get a signal if you have them selected.

Thanks. I think that was it. I tried again this morning with a functioning transponder and had it done in about ten minutes. Now I get to enjoy it for a month.
