    Depends on which twin you have ?

    There are several types of Twin's that can be used on the Dish500 dish. (DP Dual, DP Quad, Legacy Dual, Legacy Quad)

    If its a Dishpro Twin then settings are as kb posted above.
    If its a Legacy Twin then you do not use Diseqc you select legacy twin LNB1 for 119 & LNB2 for 110.

    Just so you know 119 will not show a signal or lock on some TP's so make sure you are using an active TP like 11297 or any of the other 20+ active TP's

    Not sure what twin lnb it is but I remove it and replace it with two single legacy lnbs and a diseqc switch and now it's working thanks for the help
