Is it possible to look at 4 orbital locations (61.5, 110, 119, 148) using a DP Twin for 110/119 and DP Duals for 61.5 & 148 (cascaded through DP21 switch) connected to DP34 switch or do you have to have the DP+44 switch? I already know about how to get around duplicate channel entries in the EPG.
 
no, it won't work with the DP21 between the DP34 and the dish. Should work the other way though, receiver to DP21 with DP34 on one side and fourth LNB on the other.
 
Right - you can't put a DP21 upstream of a DPxx.

You CAN (usually) put a DP34 output into DP21 port #1, and a one-bird feed on port #2.
 
Thanks for the info! Now the next question: lets say I use a DP+44 switch instead. Now I KNOW that I can hook up this switch for all 4 orbital locations (61.5, 110, 119, 148). The question is will the 921 recognize this configuration and will it "work" (I know about duplicate channels in the EPG such that you can't channel up/down across duplicates, but will the 921 otherwise work)?

Yes
 

And another rant on Dish...
