This one confused me for awhile too, then one day I figured it out.

Here is my crude drawing, excuse the dots, they were used as spaces. :)

110......119 <--- Sats in the Sky
..\ ......../
...\....../ <---- SIgnal Coming down
.....\.../
.......X <----- Your satellite Dish which reflects the signal to your
....../..\ LNB's
...../.....\
..../........\
.119.....110 <----- Your Dishes LNB's (Noticed the signals are
reversed)

In other words the signal comes down, bounces off your satellite Dish which has a slight curve and is bounced back to the LNB's when this bouncing happens its like a mirror so the signal is backwords thus the reversing of the signals.

Hope I explained it well enough. Its easier to say outloud then it is to type. :)

The easy answer is its due to the signals "reflections" from the dish.
