I live in hawaii, I am currently using a dish 1000.2 to pick up the 110 119. I was having a hard time picking up the 129 sat with the primary dish. So I am thinking about installing another 1000.2 as a wing dish, would this be confusing if 2 dp plus lnbf are communicating with one another?

You cannot connect a DPP LNB to the input of another DPP LNB. Only DP LNBs can be connected to the DPP LNB's wing dish input connector.

I live on the Big Island of Hawaii,Puna coast. I use a 24 inch dish with a single dpp lnb connected to a dpp44 switch and have no problem receiving 129,this is my wing dish.

No such thing as a single DPP-compatible single LNB. Most likely a DP dual LNB. DPP44 can handle DPP LNBs though.

Why would you do that? Did you buy a second 1k2 lnb? If it is already pointed you can probably just get a W-bracket and a DP Dual lnv for it. Normal setup would be a dish with just an I-bracket and a DP dual for 129.
