IF your standing behind a superdish and looking at the lnbs from left to right. THe first two lnbs are in a casing. THe third one which is a dish plus pro is out by itself. Which lnb is which sat. How do I know if I have a 105 or 121 superdish. The real problem I am having is I get signal but its on the wrong sat. Thanks

If the lnbf that is outside of the casing is on the right ( asuming your behind the dish, and this is a dish pro dual not a plus ) then you have a 121 superdish. The middle lnbf is the 119 and the left lnbf is the fss stacked or 121 lnbf, on the 105 superdish the out side dish pro dual is the 119, the middle dish pro dual is the 110, and the 105 is dead nuts center and is another fss stacked lnbf.

so the 121 is located inside the casing to the left of the 119 lnb which means 110 is on the outside to the right of the casing by itself?

That is correct, the 121 superdish has only one external ( outside of the shroud ) lnbf and it is a dish pro dual or singal depending on how old it is. If your receiving signal from the wrong sat then its probable that your dish has moved out of alignment, this happens when the dish moves on its horizontal axis or its elevation falls or raises. If it has moved on the horizontal then that means the sleeve bolts arent tight enough and the wind or another hazzard has turned it. If the elevation has changed its due either to a bad mount location that isnt sturdy and the dish's weight is pulling it down or the ground if its on a pole is soft or the pole wasnt cemented in, wasnt deep enough, or your in a hurricane location. Take a magnetic carpenters level, the small type and place it on the side of the pole if its on a pole and check for level on all sides.
If you take the casing off, just the top half, you will see 2 lnbfs without their own casing's, one will say dbs stacked, and the other will say fss stacked.

Things to do
I just started to install Dish network for my business and truthfully its been nothing but problems. First off Dish does not give you enough money fo installation. With two guys to install a superdish it takes longer than two hours. Plus having two guys there it is actually 4 hours. This is non stop working hard not to metion in the freezing WI weather. This install seems pretty straight forward. Mount the dish run three rg6 coax to the multi switch and then run the wries to each box. The problem is we can get this done but as soon as we sart looking for the signal everything goes to hell. We can get 110 to lock on to Echostar 110 but then 121 is wrong sat. 119 we can get to lock on to echostar 119 but sometimes it goes to 110. Is there something I am doing wrong that trying to get a signal is so hard. I have done hundreds of DirecTV and never really had the problems I am with the Superdish. Any thoughts on what I could be doing wrong.
