Did you set the LNB frequency to 10.75 on your V-71HD ?? also you may have to switch the 22Khz on or off in the LNB settings, as that is how the OEM box switches between the two satellites. I assume you are using the original shaw LNB.

Since you are in Florida another issue that might be happening is that those two Canadian Satellites footprint/beams are weak that far South in the US.

(Florida, South Texas and So.California) are on the (weak fringe) or edge of the footprint of those two satellites.

Since you are getting at least some of the channels (107.3w) has a better signal in Florida than 111.1w so you might want to get on one of those Satellites, use your meter and try small adjustments on the Dish and LNB and see if you can get any increase in the signal.

Good Luck ! :D
