VIcky - both tuners on your 322 will need to see all slots that your subscribed programming is on - which if I'm intrepting your post correctly - is 118,119, and 110.
You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...

The LNB on the dish acts as a switch sending the signal from the satellite to the receiver. You need a separator to split the signal coming from your dish to the receiver. Even though you said you changed the coax from 110 to 118, in actuality you are still getting 110. If you'll install the separator, then run the check switch you'll get the correct satellites on the receiver to get your programming. If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks.

As I see it by wording "both of them are dual": the OP has only D500+ dish and no SWITCH;
for this config (regrdless of 322 or other type of receiver) it has to be installed DP34 switch at least. It must combine: 119W to port1, 110W - port2 and 118W - port 3.
If the 322 can support DPP [separator] (I don't remember), then the switch could be DPP44 and OP could run just one coax from point of install the DPP44 to DPP separator close to 322.

After the switch will be installed, the receiver must run setup (check switch menu), then wait 15 min for settle authorization card, if it will not go - call CSR and ask for send 're-hit'.

Now you shouldn't use two cables from '118W LNBF', because it's the combo LNBF block - it's combine (mechanically) two LNBFs: 119W and 118W, but has two SEPARATE outputs (one per LNBF).

Please, you will NEED DP34 or DPP44 SWITCH. Just find/borrow/buy it.
