Lonnie, You have a simple problem,the 119 satellite is lower in the sky than the 119 if you make sure the pole you are mounted on is straight and plum ,then simply raise the dish a few elevation degrees and turn the dish to the left.Your dish is aimed low and to the right.

chances are that you have only lined up the dish to pick up one satellite. there are several satellites up there for dish and its easy to miss the ones that you need. try to line up the dish keeping this in mind. if that doesn't work, write back.

You will need a DP or Legacy twin or quad, or DPP twin without using an external switch. If you use Legacy Duals, or DP Duals you will need a switch. USUALLY a SW21 is used to combine the signals but you may have a different one in use if at all.
The primary thing to remember when using a switch is that you must use the same type of LNB as switch e.g. Legacy switches with Legacy LNB's and Dish Pro switches with Dish Pro LNB's.
Check your LNB type. Legacy LNB's have only a Dish Network Logo on them, Dish Pro has DP on them and DPP have DP PLUS on them.
One of three things could be the cause:
1. Line of site. Must be clear of all obstructions to ensure adequate signal.
2. You have a faulty switch, or conflicting LNB and switch, or no switch at all.
3 you may have a bad port on the LNB.
As a fail safe check that your mount is level and plumb. You also may have the dish pointed directly at 119. Check the Skew and elevation settings as well. If LOS IS THE ISSUE YOU MAY NEED TO RELOCATE THE DISH OR REMOVE THE OBSTRUCTION.
In some extreme cases microwave towers and High Voltage lines also pose a problem but doubt this is the case for you.

What you are looking for is called a mirrored location. Its a location that mirrors either tv1 or tv2. It can be installed using simply a few splitters depending on how you want it ran. If you do it your self it will save you alot of money. If not Dish Network will charge up to $99 for a reinstall
