By 1.2m I assume you mean the Alaska/Hawaii dish. The 920 error is because you cannot use the AL/HI dish with legacy multi-switches without the 110/119 companion dish to supply guide data when accessing the 103 satellites.

If you do not have or wish to use the 110/119 comp. dish, your only alternative is to convert to a SWM install and run the four outputs of the dish to a SWiM-8 or -16 external module and then set the receivers to SL-3S dish in the setup.

And to note, the 1.2m dish will not really prevent rain fade anymore than a standard size Slimline as they are deep drops in signal strength on the order of 50-60 db far beyond what the increased dimensions of the 1.2m dish can compensate for.
