I brought my 510 on a road trip for a month and have a quick question. I have it hooked to a DishPro Twin and I can only pick up the 119 satellite. There are a lot of trees but I am getting 85% on the 119 satellite. I was told the switch was built in to the Twin and I should be able to pickup both satellites. Is that so? Any ides? :)

You have to have the dish aimed at 110 to be able to run a switch test. Do you have the skew, Az. and Elev set on your dish so that you can pick up both satellites?

Actually, you tune off of 119 W...

There are numerous factors that without actually "being there" I personally can't pinpoint why you aren't picking up 110 but, here's a helpfull link.
