One problem at a time.

Monroe/El Dorado channels (SD only at this time) come from 110 so any old dish should be able to see them (assuming LOS).

Are you looking at the HD Only guide?

Did you try punching the 8 button on the remote?

(Harshness, that's * not 8 for the Format.)

Are you referring to satellite locals (LIL) or OTA locals? The TV2 outputs do not see OTA locals, the LIL are there. Oops, I was thinking of the 722, no "k". Need I ask, you do have the OTA module? The RF output will have both tuner 1 and 2 outputs on whatever UHF channels you have selected.

The guide should not be slanted even in the wrong format if you have selected an SD 4x3 format in the menus and in most other cases.

You said you have a Dish Pro Dual LNB, if it really is a DUAL you are looking at only 1 satellite so you won't see 110 = no locals. You need a DISH 500 with a Dish Pro Plus TWIN LNB and a separator on the 722K.

I meant to say 8 as there is a channel 8 in Monroe. This would get around any guide issues and maybe even tell the OP what was wrong.

Obviously, boba was reading a whole lot more closely and discovered the real problem: no 119W on a one-slot LNB.
