I want to receive 4 sat like 110,119,129,61.5 on two ant. The reception is all right on all satellite but i'm not able to receive in same time with check switch.
I have cascade a sw21 with two sw44 and quad lnbf but I receve only 110/119 on one side but no 129/61.5 on other side of sw21.
Where is the fault ?

Thanks for help !

Not to be a party pooper but, legally, you can't subscribe to DISH Network from Canada.

You would need to switch to Dish Pro technology DPP44.

With the SW44 you're limited to 3 sats by cascading the 3rd via SW21.

SW44 output to SW21 input 1.
Single or Dual LNB (not Twin or Quad) to SW21 input 2.
SW21 output to Sat IN on receiver (add another SW21 and RG6 run for dual-tuner).

To get 4 sats using legacy LNBs, substitute an SW64 for the SW44.
