61.5 is almost 50 degrees away from 110.
My 61.5 and 110/119 are right next to another. The arms look almost 90 degrees from each other. The dish would have to be huge!
People b*tch about SD size....yeah, lets have a 50" dish!

That toroidal dish will see 110-148, but won't see 61.5-119 great as they are right at the limits. It also won't work with standard Dish LNBs. Dish DBS signals use a circular polarity. When they hit a reflector, they switch polarity. Dish's LNBs know this so they correct the polarity internally. If you reflect it twice, it's already correct, so Dish's LNBs will flip it again making them the wrong polarity. 105/121's FSS signals use H/V polarity that are immune to this reversal.
Maybe a Toroidal-90 dish will do, (captures up to 16 different satellites) it seems to kick ass! T55/T90 (20/38 inch dish) can cover up to 40 degrees in arc, 60 degrees in azimuth. But it still wouldn't work for me do to the satellite distances right?.

dp34 picks up 3 sats.
The DP34 is a switch....he wants to pick up 3 satellites (110, 119, 148) on one dish
