The usual DN LNBs are for 110 and 119W combo. You will see two eyes on them.
The 118/119 combo is a special dish whether DN or the other market, and you must buy it knowing it is a dish for 118/119. Once you know it is meant for 118/119, then a setting of LNB type Dishpro or Universal and LNB frequency of 10750 or 9750-10750, and do a blind scan.
The other problem is the Dish size. IT HAS TO BE at least 30" preferrable 33".
You can buy a combo 33" dish and the special 118/119 LNB for as low as $60.

Which box do you have? At present the problem usually is in the IKS service for the receiver you have.

If you have a 33" dish and a special LNB for 118/119, kbox has a lot of channels there. You should be able to pick up a lot of channels, except when the kbox service is down.

Actually I was up n running in Toronto....with SV and a 33 " ..but I came to penselvania some where in the country side and I wanna run my SV over here on DN'S equipment..and I am not able to find a 33 " in this area so I would rather use already installed dish which is I guess 27 inches..or whatever......

has asked in this forum at least four times in the last month, about not getting some 118 channels.

The bottom line is:

YOU WILL NOT GET 118 USING 27" DISH IN NORTH AMERICA.

YOU NEED AT LEST A 30" DISH.

PUTTING IT DIFFERENTLY
500 OR 1000 DISH IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

YOU NEED 500 PLUS OR 1000 PLUS

QED

Particularly if you are using a generally available generic LNB for 118/119, you need a 30-33" Dish
The actual DN LNB for 118/119 is a bit more sensitive and will get you some channels, but why quibble, when you can get a 33" dish and a 118/119 LNB for a mere $60? I know for certain that this combo works all across North America.
Sometime people install something they think it is for 118/119, but since they are mostly watching 119 channels, they think they have got everything right. The proof of the pudding is in getting all TPs under 11750

Nalin is right!

It's possible to get 118 with a 18" but the lower frequencies channels will not come.
You must buy a bigger dish and you will not lose the signal if a little rain fall.

since some are learning ....

110 & 119 use a linear polarity LNB's

the 118 LNB must be a circular Polarity

so you have some choices

setup separate dish with circular LNB and point it @ 118.7 as the "normal" DN LNBs are linear

if you have 2 single (separate) LNBs take off the 119 LNB and replace it with a dual polarity LNB
which is capable of receiving both linear and circular signals, thus receiving both 119 & 118.7

the dish size i am not sure about so i will leave that part to the more experience testers .. but i am going to be researching for myself.

You are blind my friend

110,119 and 118.7 use Circular LNB but 118.7 use the same frequency than Linear.

This is the most ridiculous statement I have heard in a very long time. You should not attempt to teach people when you yourself do not have the foggiest idea about types of LNBs used.
Almost all the KU band LNBs are circular LNBs. The 118/119 LNB simple uses a lower frequecny to get the channels, but the LNB is a circular LNB for both 118 and 119.

I think you should get your fact together before posting and costing somebody a lot of money.
