You can forget 11491V & 11496H - your receiver isnt suitable for those two frequencies and you have no chance with them.
This graphic might give you some clues as to why one or two frequencies are missing - as the fec increases you need more signal, especially with DVB-S2 signals
12130 is listed as Horizontal polarity, on lyngsat.
You also list a few frequencies as being 0% or jumping to over 70%, can you please explain.
You also list a number of channels being at 99%, probably the maximum signal strength, for the receiver, yet you still get no channels on 12226 V 27500 which is DVB-S.
The first thing I'd try is re-doing the connections, ensuring that the braid hasn't been cut off, when doing up the F Connector, which has happened to me before, due to the F Connector being too tight, for the cable.
Do you have access to another receiver, you can try, or another dish, pointing at 30W, to try your receiver on? Friend, or family member?
You still haven't answered whether the cable is going directly to your receiver, or via a Diseqc switch, or other set up, as your picture seems to show a box, with other dishes connected.
When you can, put a current photo of the antenna you use for Hispasat.
Have to see......
The new support for the LNB.
As this antenna support the mast, the truth is curious.
Attached well to the multi-LNB antenna mount of 80cm with the counterweight brick, as seen in the photo.?
Cuando puedas, pon una foto actual de la antena que usas para Hispasat.
Tiene que verse.......
El nuevo soporte para el LNB.
Como esta el soporte de la antena al mastil, es curiosidad la verdad.
Sujetaste bien el soporte multi LNB de la antena de 80cm con el ladrillo de contrapeso, como se ve en la foto.?
PS: The typical fault of the switches (DiSEqC) is .... a mouth is broken, the rest OK.
PD: La averia tipica de los conmutadores (DiSEqC) es ....se rompe una boca, el resto OK.

In general, the supports are tightened in sequence as an X-cross.
If you squeeze on one side, the antenna is unbalanced, always so, 3 millimeters and end of the signal.
Thanks for not saying how the glitches are solved (very large photo).
With practice you will be able to hold the antenna with the hand and to have signal of the satelite.
So the family can enjoy these channels.
En general los soportes se aprietan en secuencia como un cruzado en X.
Si aprietas de un lado, se desajusta la antena, siempre es asi, 3 milimetros y fin de la señal.
Gracias por no decir como estan solucionadas las pegas (foto muy grande).
Con practica podras sujetar la antena con la mano y tener señal del satelite.
Asi la familia puede disfrutar de esos canales.
.........as shown in following photo, dish cannot move at all! Top is fixed by a piece of wood. LNB arm is supported by a stone under it: cannot move either. (But NEITHER - of course - when testing!) I added an adjustable bar between "ABOVE the middle" of the dish and support, but I concluded that I have to fit another such adjustable bar from "BELOW the middle".
I noticed the arm being a bit loose. A bad fit. Maybe I have to tighten some bolts. But there is a stone under it anyway (see pictures). I moved it sideways a bit. Maybe the LNB was not looking at the right spot on the dish....
Did you read Analoguesat's post, top of this page?
"You can forget 11491V & 11496H - your receiver isnt suitable for those two frequencies and you have no chance with them."
Most encrypted channels have various Audio options, which generally include the original sound track, which in a lot of cases is English, due to the popularity of the American television, and film, industry.
If you have such a low signal quality, and it drops to 0, then you still have a problem, probably with the LNB, cable, connections, or even your Diseqc set up, but also with your dish.
Have you tried sliding your LNB closer to the dish, and further away. if you have room?
You might also still need to make minor adjustments, to your dish, elevation, and position, to get the strongest signal quality. Is there anything blocking the signal?
Can you run a power extension, to the roof, and take your receiver, and a small television, up there, to make minor adjustments, with a small cable, run directly from your LNB, to receiver?
I never go to 30W, anymore, due to the lack of choice, for Movistar+ channels you're better off on 19.2E, as they have the HD versions.
I just moved my dish, to 30W, and all the available channels, for Europe, appear to be scanning in.
The Triax TD 110, is misleading, as from what I remember reading the dish is actually only 1M, but my memory could be faulty.
I did buy a Penta 85cm dish, for my parents, and that's performing better than I expected, plus it's easy to fit, and adjust, as a stand alone dish, or connected to a motor.
Keep persevering, with the Triax, and you should get there, providing you have the patience, which I haven't.
To which point the LNB 'is looking' is not the most important thing (though you really can win a few percent with the LNB pointing exactly to the 'G-spot' of the antenna!).
Most important thing is that the Phase center of the feedhorn of the LNB is exactly in the focal point of the dish.
The way you manipulate the LNB-arm with stones doesn't sound like stable positioning at the focal point?
When the LNB is not at the focal point, the dish has to be (fine)tuned again to reflect the satellite signals of 30W to the spot where the LNB is now, at the expense of losing some of your signal quality.
So when you want to receive weak transponders: check if the LNB-feedhorn really is in the focal point.
Usually (but by no means always) the manufacturers make the LNB arm in such a way, that the arm should not be manipulated extra...
When I'm fine tuning my dish I use a PC monitor, with a HDMI connection, many new PC monitors now have a HDMI connection, and my old Spiderbox 9000 HD satellite receiver.
I fix these up close to the dish, fortunately I have a ground based dish, and a conservatory very close.
When I set up my mothers I again used a PC monitor, and the Spiderbox, in her garden, but I did choose a dry day, something we have very rarely now.
By connecting everything up, near your dish, and using a short piece of WF 100 co-ax cable, direct from the LNB, to your receiver, you take everything else out of the equation, including old cable, and your Diseqc set up.
