Just how many birds is my dish supposed to be looking at? I have the side car dish, and have HD local from SFO, and L.A. When I do a system test, it shows that I am receiving 5 out of 6 birds. 101, 110, 119, 103 a and b, and 99. :what:

The dish is designed to see 5 satellite positions, 99/101/103/110/119. There could be multiple sats at each position. When the new sat (Directv11) is ready, there will be 2 transponder screens for 99.
