How do I find Hispasat?

Ok, my neighbour and I have decided that he's going to watch channels from 30 west (Hispasat).
He's got a satellite dish pointing at 13 east (Hotbird).
My plan is going to move it towards 30 west instead.
But here's my problem.
I've got a satellite dish too, pointing towards 5 east. When I found 5 east, I used an analogue receiver and found TV4 Sweden. Afterwards I finetuned with the digital receiver and a satfinder.
But how can I find 30 west? There's not even any analogue channels on this satellite.
I can see myself search and search for ages.
Sorry, if this question sounds a bit pathetic, but I'm don't know that much about satellite stuff.

I believe there may be one analogue channel on 30W.

Canal+ 12,591H in Nagra.

Ok, thanks for the reply.
But it's encoded in Nagravision, right?
TV4 which I used on 1 west (not 5 east which I wrote earlier by mistake), is not encoded.
I've got an old D2Mac receiver.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

As long as you have the analogue receiver tuned into the correct frequency/polarity you will see the lines of transmission as you move the dish past the satellite

Dont use a TV that has auto blanking though

A 4:3 28" screen is however fine. ;)
