Question about DISH Network Televison & Video
119 99% locks in. 110 locks in only if the wind is less than 25 mph; there are no thunderstorms; the temperature is less than 85 degrees. This therefore means it will receive only 50 to 75% of the time and rarely makes it through a viewing session without having to re-acquire the signal. No obstructions, azimuth is South West. Obtained another Dish for Internet this year... 99% connect. Both dishes were installed by DISH tech.

Lonnie, You have a simple problem,the 119 satellite is lower in the sky than the 119 if you make sure the pole you are mounted on is straight and plum ,then simply raise the dish a few elevation degrees and turn the dish to the left.Your dish is aimed low and to the right.

SOURCE: Hi. I need help finding 119!
I looks like you are picking 110W with the LNB on your left if you are facing the dish.
Try to get 119W first if you connect the cable to the 119 LNB, once you find 119W that way, you will also have 110W.

You will need a DP or Legacy twin or quad, or DPP twin without using an external switch. If you use Legacy Duals, or DP Duals you will need a switch. USUALLY a SW21 is used to combine the signals but you may have a different one in use if at all.
The primary thing to remember when using a switch is that you must use the same type of LNB as switch e.g. Legacy switches with Legacy LNB's and Dish Pro switches with Dish Pro LNB's.
Check your LNB type. Legacy LNB's have only a Dish Network Logo on them, Dish Pro has DP on them and DPP have DP PLUS on them.
One of three things could be the cause:
1. Line of site. Must be clear of all obstructions to ensure adequate signal.
2. You have a faulty switch, or conflicting LNB and switch, or no switch at all.
3 you may have a bad port on the LNB.
As a fail safe check that your mount is level and plumb. You also may have the dish pointed directly at 119. Check the Skew and elevation settings as well. If LOS IS THE ISSUE YOU MAY NEED TO RELOCATE THE DISH OR REMOVE THE OBSTRUCTION.
In some extreme cases microwave towers and High Voltage lines also pose a problem but doubt this is the case for you.

The 622's are good receivers it is just that on occasion we get a shipment that has been mishandled. This causes the issues however a 722k is a good choice. Thanks for using Fixya.
