How do I determine what satellite and transponder are for a specific channel?

I have one channel that now is intermittent after years of no issues.  I assume bad reception.

How do I figure out the satellite and transponder for that one channel?

More likely bad transmission of that channel to DTV. There is no way to tune a channel.

thanks!  Tat's what we suspected, but thought I would check.  Some of our transponders are down at 74 while most are 90+.  And of course the troublesome one was the only showing the Bills Lions game!  Grrr.....

Most HD programming is on the 99/103 sats so what are those reading?

Some are at 74? Wonder if an alignment is needed.

Could you post all those readings?

Also, what model are your boxes?

Every box affected or just certain ones?

Spot beams can be lower as not aim at them.
