    Just a general question:
    On setting up a system: on the menu screen you have an option of selecting the number of a transponder? How does this effect the Bird reception? What are the different transponder numbers used for?

    Each transponder carries a number of channels, 5 or so, so whatever channel you input involves automatic switching to the correct transponder. You can change transponders manually while checking your signal strength.

    When pointing a dish it is best to set the receiver to the home transponder. IE if you are pointing to EchoStar 119 set the screen to transponer 1.
