DishHD is on BSS. ( not DVB), Ku-Bank.
As a technical matter, DBS , also known by the International Telecommunication Union as Broadcasting Satellite Service, BSS. refers only to services transmitted by satellite in specific frequency bands: 11.7-12.2 GHz in ITU Region 3 (Asia, Australia), 10.7 – 12.75 GHz in ITU Region 1 (Europe, Russia, Africa), and 12.2-12.7 GHz ITU Region 2 (North and South America).
BSS frequencies are with circular polarization from orbital position. This is why 122 DishHD feed can not be tested by DVB-S standard satellite meter. However, on AsiaSat4, there are some transponders send signal by DVB format. We can use those beams to locate the satellite, 12274 V 06000 for example, signal quality is 42-52 dBW, East Asia beam. This beam is used by SpeedCast, a satellite communication service provider in Asia Pacific.
The Australia Ku band beam of AsiaSat4 carries a couple of TV channels:

AsiaSat 4 is a Boeing 601HP satellite. It is positioned at 122 degrees East orbital location that offers excellent ‘look angles’ over Asia and Australasia. Its C-band footprint widely spreads over the Asia-Pacific region with two focused Ku-band beams for East Asia and Australasia, and a steerable Ku-beam enabling greater flexibility in network connectivity.
