Thanks in advance for any help someone can offer on this issue. I currently have a 1000.4hd and 500 plus dish. The feeds I am viewing are 61.5/72.7/77 and 118.7. I have attempted to try and feed in 119 with splitter but that jst will not work. Is there a way to substitue the 119 into my viewable sat's by eliminating one of the eastern arc locations. I am not concerned with locals. How would the 44 switch have to be configured to power both dish's?

DPP44 with 61.5/72.7/118.7 and 119 should work.

Is there a certain port/ports that need to be routed to each dish and to a certain lnb? I have removed 77 and hooked up 119 but receivers will not see the 119? Thank you.

Officially your are 'supposed' to be able to have 5 birds using a DP-21 switched on each output of the DPP44 switch, to add the 5th bird (I need to test that it works 1 of these days, when I get around to it). However, substituting the 77 w/ 119 I think is an even swap as they both provide basically the same channels. My dpp44 switch goes as follows: 119, 110, 61.5, 72.
