    I get a green lock signal for the 110 satellite (a somewhat weak 50), but I cannot find the 119 satellite. Everything is plumb, but no signal after 3 days of trying. What do I do?

    You initially should be aiming your Dish 500 (I guess you are using a dish 500) with only the 119 LNB connected directly to your satellite receiver.
    If you are doing this and picking up the 110 satellite, then you have your elevation set about two degrees too high, and your dish aimed slightly to the east.
