Default Watch *MY* TV on my Galaxy s3

I'm by myself and need to re-align my DirecTV dish. Is there any app that will allow me to see whats on MY TV? I could tune the TV to the 'signal strength' menu and tweak the dish by looking at my phone.

Thanks.

I can't imagine how such a thing could work. Unless your TV were transmitting a copy of its current image (encoded) via WiFi or bluetooth (the protocols your phone can receive) there's no way the phone could get that information.

Sorry

Thanks for the replies.

I wasn't sure if I could transmit over bluetooth or wi-fi FROM the TV TO the phone or not. My other option would be to set my tablet in front of the TV and turn on the camera and transmit that to the phone. Don't know if that would work or not.

The sat finder apps are for initially locating the satellite. It's been set up, but the wind has knocked it out of alignment. I could get some channels, but not others. The signal strengths were low on the HD channels.

I just climbed up on the roof, made a slight adjustment, climbed back down and checked the signal strengths...and repeated until I had it. Took a couple of hours, but it's good now.

Thanks again.
