just to be positive here, I think it was hinted at, but is your dish setup a swm3? because if you are not getting sd locals (on the 119, yes lowest satellite) one thing that some techs dont know is when a 5lnb lnbf is installed the guide data is also downloaded off the 119, which will reak hell upon the entire install, using a swm3 will force the guide data to the 101. That could be your issue, do us a favor and go take a look at your dish, and physically count the number of "white feed horns" on the end of the arm, if you only have 1 visible white feed horn you have a swm3 which sounds to me is what you need do to line of sight. If you have 3 physical white feed horns (yea i know kinda confusing) you have a swm5. If you do happen to have the swm5 installed then god help you explain that to directv you need your lnb swapped for those reasons, as most hsps are told to no line of sight cancel and order that is not capable of receiving all channels (if if hd counterparts are on an unrelated and perfectly fine working satellite) your best bet would be to find someone local to come swap it for you in that case.
