    Is there somewhere I can get instructions on wiring.
    I have a 1000.2 dish with a Proplus triple LNB.
    I am not sure what lugs on the LNB to connect the coax to.

    Also, I with my 222k i received a splitter that has 3 coax cables that connect to the receiver and one lug to connect the coax from the dish. Does a single wire from the LNB connect to this?

    Thanks

    You only need a single line from the LNB.

    If I use 1 coax which of the 4 lugs on the LNB do I connect to? 119 - 110 - 129 - LNB in

    Either 110,119, or 129. Doesn't matter which unless you are using a external switch.

    I am not using a switch.

    Thanks, I will try to connect to 119 and see what happens.

    You have a DPP separator as well, right?

    That "splitter" looking thing is a separator and you need to use that at the back of the receiver. The two short cables connect at the sat in ports and the cable from the dish connect to the single port on the separator. Be sure to run a switch test.
