Also how do you lock the setting, it says unlocked the switch must be working if Iam getting the white on red scale, would it be in the skew? Iam going bald fast:D

look to make sure something isn't bent, something isn't blocking 119? Are you doing a check switch on each change?

Hi, the first thought that comes to mind is you might be receiving the 110 satellite from the 119 side of the LNB. Maybe try wrapping the 119 side with foil and re point the dish. Hope this helps, DC

What kind of LNBs/switches are you using? If one of the dishes has an external switch you may have the switch order switched. It is 119/110 on integrated LNBs but on external switches it could be whatever.

Yeah you should be doing a new check switch each time your switching from one to the other.

If you are doing switch checks and the 110 sat is in the first slot then you are pointing to far to the east. move dish slowly to the west until you get another signal, that will be the 119 sat which after doing a check switch should be in the first sat slot. ie 119, 110 ,x
