DPP 44 and legacy

Do you have other receivers connected to the DP44?
I have a legacy reciever (4900) connected to my DPP 44. Sopposedly it *should* work since the DPP44 has the built in adapter, but the only bird that it sees is 119 and only the odd transponders (i think). What am I doing wrong?? I have a dish 500, I believe its a DP twin.
Are you using the power inserter on the port 1 receiver feed?

- There is a DPP44 power inserter feeding receiver port 1.
- There is a DP or DPP receiver connected to the power inserter, and thus to receiver port 1.
- The legacy receiver is connected to receiver port 2, 3, or 4.
- You run a Check Switch with "All" checked.
However, in the real world, this configuration only seems to work about half the time.
The real question is: why in the world are you still using a legacy receiver? Do you drive a horse and wagon to work? It's 2010, man! Dish It Up and get a 211 at least!

and yes the 522 is working flawlessly. I was having trouble before w/ the 522 using a dp34 switch: Every 24 hours i'd hafta re-check-switch to get it see all birds, it kept losing birds overnight. So I finally added the elec. outlet in the attic an installed the dpp44. Hmmm is there a DP44? Or are all 44's DPP?
