Why are you installing a SuperDISH? San Jose locals aren't on 121. They are on 119 and 148. You would need a second dish, not a SuperDISH, to receive all of your locals.

What kind of receiver are using?

According to DISH, "The following receivers can be placed within a SuperDISH installation, but are incapable of recognizing the FSS locations (105° and 121°): Models 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, DISHPlayer, JVC-DVHS (“IRR”) and PCI."

My first question is whether you have the installation manual.

If so, how far have you gotten?

If not, why not?

Where did you get this dish? Are sure you got a 121 SuperDISH? There are two different versions of a SuperDISH: a 105 and a 121 version.

On the DISH, there should be two LNBs. One is a big, fat one and the other is a narrow, thin one. If you are looking straight at the dish, which one is on the left?

That's the problem right there. You have a 105/110/119 SuperDISH. A 105 SuperDISH has the small LNB on the left and the larger 110/119 LNB on the right. A 121 SuperDISH has the larger 110/119 LNB on the left and the small LNB on the right. You cannot pick up the 121 signal using that setup. Regardless of how it was listed on eBay, it is not a 121 SuperDISH.

Just to be sure, check my attached pic of the four types of SuperDish.

Still, if it is a 105 SD, he CAN get 121 with it - but he'll need a separate Dish 500 to get 110/119.

Edit: :) chaddux and I had the same idea - but he beat me to it. Nice shot of a 121 SD. ;)

I figured it was better to get a picture to make sure we are on the same page since there is probably a language barrier between us. God bless Google Images.

hi, our dish LNB's are identical to the pictures i am going to include(if i can). also, the lnbs do catch 119/110 and 121 but only one at a time. the 119/110 signal does come throu together but only one lnb channels are visible.

we can see the 121 channels but all three lnb's are not lining up all at once.

if you cannot see our included picture, our lnb setup is the same as the one at the upper right picture you posted in your Posts: 2,115 .

Please reply,
thanks

You can only see one orbital location at one time? You can't see 110 and 119 at the same time? If this is that case, your DISH isn't peaked properly. Where are you located?

Also, are you sure it looks EXACTLY like that? That is an HDTV SuperDISH.

yes, its exactly like that, is there a problem with us using HD SD?

btw, we are located near TRACY, ca, bayarea. san jose, ca

we can peak both 119/110 with pretty good signal , on average 75bars. but when we try to check switch , one dp34 switch port detects the 110 with DUAL signal, while the other one (119) detects FEED.

the guide does show both channels i.e. 119/110 , but one of the lnb channels do not show up.

i hope this clarifies some things.

Thanks,
Friend of OP.

I'm not sure if that is your problem. Are you an HDTV subscriber?

The photos you have shown are a 105 superdish.
