What is your dish pointing at and how do you know it's receiving a good signal? We need a little more information.

Do you mean which direction (south), I'm really new at this i was looking at so of the question so people ask and answer, for example someone said that they were pointing at satellite 110 and 119, how can i find out which one i am pointing, at right now i just am where my neighbors satellite are pointing, see i'm new at this!

Go to www.lyngsat.com and have a look at the satellites to the West, they have a list of the channels they host. Unfortunately we are predominantly a European forum and cannot see the satellites you will be watching, so will not easily be able to identify the satellite by channels.

Coolsat tells you what sat you are pointed at, unless you are running
original or old firmware. 111p is the latest rev, but I have used 107p
with no problem. It autorolls for dish and bev.It has the signal beep
function for aiming, so I use wireless uhf headphones when I'm out
at the dish.

There are receivers out there that don't have that feature, people
don't know what they are missing. I have also seen receivers that
have that feature with factory firmware, but lose it with firmware
rigged for nagra and other providers.
The original coolsat firmware and early rigged firmware didn't have it.
Enough people put the idea in the suggestion box, so it has it now.
Srt4640,sky x,strong x firmware will all work on the coolsat4000 if
you jtag the firmware into it.
