Where did you get that dish?  How are you aiming it?  Perhaps it's defective?

 

If you follow the steps in peds48's post in the EXACT order, it should work fine.

you don't give us much info.  what is not working?  Any error messages?  following the above instructions to the "T" should get your receiver switch to work with your dish.  of course, the dish must be aim properly in order to receive any programming.

it is not recognizing that a satelite is even there. the dish is hooked to the swm box at the power to swm, signal to ird is hooked into the reciever. even after setting up the reciever to the specifications above.( 01-round 18", and multi switch) still nothing. "problem communicating with dish. error code (771A)."

you don't need the power supply with the round dish.  just connect a coax cable from this dish directly to your receiver.  then follow the instructions on post # 2
