Good day.  I just purchased an ms6906 and the user manual is very vague.  I need to know how to locate or along my dish with the dish network satellites 110 w and 119w

Where are you?. Your pointing direction depends on your location.

Try this page http://www.satsig.net/maps/satellite-tv-dish-pointing-usa.htm

Home in on your house and the blue line shows the general direction towards the satellite.

Select satellite view and put the centre end of the blue line on your exact antenna location.

The up/down angle it called elevation. Set this on the scale behind the dish.

Swinging the dish sideways approx along the blue line you should find the satellite.

If your dish has two LNB feed horns, one will be for the 110W satellite, the other for 119W.  Because the dish is a reflector the LNB feed for the 119W satellite will be on the east side.
