are you sure you arent aimed at say 119?

Try this....in the sat setup change it to 3 LNB (3rd one on the list....it like the old Phase III dishes) and then try channel 366 (Hope Channel). if it comes in then you're aimed at 119

but try the other options...I cant check mine right now but I think the 1st few on the list are
18"
2 LNB
3 LNB
then 18" + 95
etc

its the 3rd one on the list....that loads the channels in for 119 too so you can check if its picking up 119

pick multiswitch even if there isnt one.

If D* says its active but the screen still says call to activate I'd call them back and speak to technical department. They may need to send a rehit
