Which chans come off the 119?

I had a D* tech come out for a movers on Sunday and he was only 3 hours late. First thing he said was that he needed a consent from my appt manager so I went and got him, then the tech says he just can't do it and leaves. Says I have trees out back and wouldn't get a signal. There are 6 appts in my building and 4 have D* and 1 has Dish. He just didn't want to work. So I installed it myself. Got a 95 on the 101, a 90 on the 110, and a 90 on the 72. But, I can't get the 119 at all. So, I need to know what chans come off the 119 before I run my own lines. I just have it hooked up to an old standard phillips that isn't active on my deck with a 13" TV so that I can see signal meter.

If you have a 3LNB oval dish you should only be getting sats at 101, 110 and 119. Could be you have the 119 LNB pointing at the 110 sat. Realign the dish farther to the west and try to bring in the 119 sat.

I would reset and run automatic satellite detection...not guided setup and have the receiver accept the satellite info again.

"and a 90 on the **72**".

Need 2 dishes for that...the beamwidth on the 3lnb dish is not wide enough to receive that far east. Did you use a multiswitch or the built in multiswitch on the 3lnb sat antenna.
