I have a Dish 500 with an older 311 receiver at my cabin. It has been working fine for the past few years until I recentlly moved it to a sturdier setup (from a tree to a pole concreted into the ground). I have about 70% signal strength on both 119 and 110. 119 will lock, but when I try to lock 110 it says on the bottom "not locked sat 129"??? I have tried another LNB and got the same results. Football season has begun and I am missing my local chanels so panic has set in. :) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You've pointed the dish in the wrong direction (there are 359 wrong directions and one right one) ;).

Your pointing at 119W and 129W when you want to be pointed at 110W and 119W.

You need to rotate the dish east a few degrees and maybe tip it up somewhat.

I've got it at 207 degrees and about 34 elevation based on the "dish pointer" info the box gave me. I guess I didn't mess with it since I had such strong numbers on both sats. I will try moving it to the east and up and see if I can get this figured out. Thanks for the quick response.
