Getting 110W and 119W on a Linkbox 9000i

Hi guys,

I'm trying to get 110W and 119W on a Linkbox 9000i. I tried the TPs with the FTA Dish Promo:

110W:
12355 L 20000-7/8

119W:
12414 L 20000-7/8

I'm not getting any signal at all. I have a 30" dish with a 110W/119W bracket for two circular LNBs. The L translates to an H polarization, right? Is there something I'm doing wrong?

I'm trying to get the FTA channel that is rebroadcasting Cozi TV during the day.

If all you are looking for is FTA COZI TV then your best bet is SES2 at 103. you will need a linear LNB and at the minimum a 36" dish.

OTA, CM4221HD, 3410 amp, 4 way split, HW-150 PVR.
FTA, Openbox S9, 33” dish, PLL LNBF. Stab 90HH.

I already have Cozi on 103W, but I loose it when it rains. I wanna see what open channels are available on 100W/119W. I'm not interested in hacking... I just need the open channels.

No free channels on 110 and 119 other than dish commercials etc. The one on 103 is your best bet, just need a bigger dish if you are getting rain fade. There is also a cozi on 105 C-band.
Maybe you can receive one of the US stations that carries cozi OTA?

SBGH @ 46', 10' C-band, & various home made projects...

I'm not getting anthing at all. No signal.

Steve Gyurki said in the other post for Cozi :
If you look at DishNet 110 with a circular LNB you will notice that FETV on transponder 10 is in free preview (it has been for a long time). It has all of the COZI programming on it during the day. A lot easier than getting 103 with a linear LNB.

I only get Movies! and MeTV via OTA.

This is what I'm aiming at. Please help.

There are no OTA Cozi TV affiliates in Vermont. The nearest one in upstate New York is in Utica, too far from the OP in Montreal.

I've looked at Lyngsat and Sathint for 110w and cannot find any info on COZI TV in the clear.
Here in the Toronto area Cozi TV on 103w is solid with a 33" dish.

FETV on transponder 10 Of 110W rebroadcasts Cozi TV during the day and FETV is in the clear according to anther post.

Note:
I have 2 DiSEqC switches connected via a 22KHz Tone switch. This gives me 8 Sat slots. I currently have 5 birds. I'm missing 3. I was hoping to get 110W and 119W.

FETV is also on CBAND @ 99W
Just guessing, that is probably where dishnetwork is grabbing it from.
And yes FETV does show Cozi quite a bit.

Cozi itself is also on CBAND at 105W, and as pointed out Ku at 103W
If 103W Ku is fading out on you, I suspect you may be better off with a better antenna.
My old Primestar antenna does pretty well with it. I think it is close to what a Starchoice
84E would be.

To eliminate rain fade, use CBAND, not Ku.

I will go CBand in the future, but in the meantime I need Cozi to be stable. No one was able to answer my question.

Why I cannot pick any channel from 110W when I have a circular lnb and my box is configured with 11250?

Did you blind scan 110 and 119? If you get nothing, then perhaps you are not aimed correctly.

I tuned to the promo channel on 110W and aimed without luck. There are 2 TP's with different SR: 20000 and 21500. Not sure what's the difference.
