    But should I try this with or without the DPP44 & power inserter...I am pretty sure the LNB has it's own internal switch already? Thanks!

    IMHO, You must completely remove the connections from the LNB to the DPP44 when going direct from the LNB to the receiver. If you don't, the internal switch in the LNB will still be turned off thus making it imposible to see more than one satellite using one connection from the LNB.

    Is your dish rotated to the right so the right most lnb is lower than the center and the center lower than the leftmost?

    As I said - it's PAST time for a service call to get it properly aimed....

    Ok -

    As you are facing the FRONT of the dish (on the same side as the LNB) - the LEFT side of the dish will be lower than the RIGHT side of the dish. As you see it from the BACK of the dish - the RIGHT side is lower than the LEFT side. If your dish is not oriented THIS way - you have no chance to get all the LNBs at once.

    And again I stress - your POLE must be perfectly plumb, and you set the skew of the dish BEFORE starting aiming - then you leave it alone. You might also want to check which LNB goes to which coax output. And TOTALLY remove the DPP44 switch and its power inserter - unless you have 4 or more recievers, it is totally unecessary. Even if you do have more than 4 - first get the dish pointed correctly before adding the switch(s).

    Per Dishpointer.com and your ZIP, your skew should be set at 121.2 deg. (scroll down to the 'Multi-LNB' 1000.2 settings for the western arc.) As said, just connect a single coax from port 1 to your receiver with no power injectors or anything else in the line.

    Thanks...changing the skew from 60 to 120 allowed med to recieve 129...so I now have 119 and 129...still cannot get 110...I can get 119 up to an 81 signal level but I have to lower the signal level to 60 to catch 129 (meet in the middle). I never do get 110 but I'm guessing it's a pointing issue at this point...I Wwill re-check it for being plumb when it quits snowing....at leaste I now have HD with 129 :)

    Progress! A little fine tuning and you'll get all three.
