My problem is with a new 522DVR.I live in Alaska, and it is very difficult to get the 110 sat. from where I live but with a lot of luck and two large dishes, a six and a four footer, I now can get 119 at 120%and 110 at 80% but I can only receive one of the110 sats not both. These two dishes have duel lnb's connected with a SW44 switch, I have a 510 dvr and a 301 that work with my two sat. setup. They have worked perfectly ever since I became a member back in 9-03 when I moved to Alaska. I bought a 522dvr wanting to replace the 301 and adding another room to satellite plus the PNP and duel recording features. Now here’s the catch, I have deducted that because I only get half of the 110 satellites the switch check will not recognize that as an acceptable reception. The 510 does the 301 does but not the 522. Two weeks ago I was on the line with tech support for almost two hours and they finally told me that the secondary port was bad and to send it back, I did, and now the replacement does the same thing, it wasn’t the port at all. Is there any way to force it to recognize the one110 sat? Tech support told me that the SW44 and the two sat dish set should work even if it is a legacy setup, but. Do you have any suggestions?
