I have a very basic question. I live in the United States and when I look for a satellite to connect to, i do not see the satellite I usually use which is echostar 119. is there a difference in satellites because this is primarily used in the UK? Can someone please help? Thanks!

The satellite's name is actually Echostar 7. Check your receiver's database for that name, it's likely to be in there somewhere.

You will have to import a satellites.xml file appropriate to your part of the world then. Most ot the lists on sites over here are only concerned with those birds available in this region.

Try a NA DB site in your area, look for 'settings lists'

...or just edit the one you have with data from Lyngsat. It's not hard, just don't introduce any syntax errors.

You can also use the autosatxml plugin to do it for you if you have enough memory left.
