    600 Feet of RG11 DPP Twin -> DPP44

    I agree totally about using a DP Twin or a Pair of DP Duals or DP Singles. Using a DPP Twin into a DPP 44 just isnt reliable. 650 ft cable distance even with amps - I doubt its going to hold up. You can do the switch and cable runs and test the voltage at the dish end of the run. If its below...

    Programming access fee

    if you have 2 vip receivers, both must show up in the dishcomm screen. A VIP always sees "itself" in dishcomm but may not find the other one. You then have to add the "R00" of the other reciever manually. Then it will usually work. since almost all homes have 2 phase AC power coming in...

    Programming access fee

    since you have 2 622's, with one connected to the internet: Dishcomm should be easily possible in most cases. No additional hardware required. check here: Tech Portal : How To : DishCOMM

    Programming access fee

    this would really be much easier to resolve if we knew what MODEL the receivers were. If they both VIP's......the use of Dishcomm is possible at no additional cost (usually).

    Anyone else lied too by sales staff?

    this is research the OP should have done HIMSELF prior to committing. Let the buyer beware. personally I know more about my potential purchases before ever talking to any sales person. that way I have the power of knowledge. cant say that I feel for him....

    superdish lnb problems also why can't i get 119 sat??

    ah, a FTA system, out of my area. Im a Dishnetwork only technician. Im still betting the Superdish array is bad. The only suggestion I wiill make is disconnect (bypass) the DP34, and run a direct cable from the DBS side (119 sat) of the Array directly to your IRD. See if you get 119...

    superdish lnb problems also why can't i get 119 sat??

    The DP Dual is for 110 sat of course. The combo LNB (known as a SuperDish 121 Array) is for 119 and 121. Almost no one needs 121 anymore. Superdish 121 arrays are notorious for going bad and losing 119 sat. You might need a new one. when posting you should always mention the type of...
