Legacy LNB's with VIP612 receiver.
How are they connected? It seems you may be trying to split one signal to both tuners, which cannot be done. I would think you should have 3 lnb's connected to the sw31 with the sw21 added to give you the fourth line, this goes to one input, a second coax would need to be done the same as this for the second 612 input.
It is recommended connection for both tuners for the receiver to work properly. You should also note that 118 takes a different type of lnb. If all are the same type, it would explain why you are not getting 118. The easiest solution would be to switch to Dish Pro and use the combination lnb for 119/118.
Is it that Dish pro receivers don't like legacy equipment (switches & LNB's)? when in dish pointing settings, I can see all 3 signals.
Legacy LNBs and switchs are suppose to work with your receiver. I'm most suspicious of the non Dish switch gear. If I were you, I'd get a genuine Dish SW64 with two cables going to the 612, or else replace the legacy LNBs with the new DishPro Plus LNB that gets all three sats, and has two DishPro Plus outputs. In the latter case, you would only need one cable to the 612.
N.B. This is my opinion having not used legacy equipment in a long time, and a SW64 never.
I'm aware, I would like that to be my last resort.It is possible the lnb you are using for 118 is not usable with Dish equipment, some FTA does work well with legacy, but not all of them. If you are getting 110 and 119, changing out the legacy equipment and using a Dish500+ and the lnb's that comes with it should solve your problem, what ever it may be. You will also save yourself problems in the future by trying to only use one tuner of a dual tuner receiver (it may work for a while, but you are opening your self up to problems with the receiver by not connecting both tuners.
Is there even a 118 dp LNB?
If using DPP switches none of the equipment can be LEGACY If using the DP LNB for 118 no LEGACY EQUIPMENT CAN BE USED A dish 500+ uses DP LNBs.would i be able to set up as follows with my dish receiver and legacy equipment?
110 and 119 going into a sw44(i know i have to use both outputs of lnb to switch). take a out put into sat 1 of SW21 and 118 into sat 2 of SW21. then out of sw21 to receiver.
will that work?

no it's not a twin. single(dual output) dss 11250 LNB'sI think it would, with the strong recommendation to double up on the SW21's and cables to your 612. SW64 is a lot cleaner. Does Dish even make a SW44?
Also, if the LNB assembly on your 110/119 is actually a legacy twin, there is no need for the SW44 since twins all have integrated switches. In the case of the legacy twin, the receiver will show it as having SW21's inside.
You hijacked this thread back on post #19 so to clarify you want to receive 110/118/119 using LEGACY LNBs and LEGACY Switches with a 612 receiver.i didn't say it was dp equipment. SW44 is a legacy switch is it not? if it is, and all my LNB's are legacy LNB's as previously stated, it should work no?
