Relocating from 61.5° to 129° question.
First, English not being my first language, I hope this can be easily understandable. First post here and need some info. My equipment, Dish 500 at 110° & 119° and a second dish at 61.5° for HD content. I’m in upper state N.Y. Few days ago, got a call from a Dishnetwork C.S. saying that I need to transfer my 61.5° to the 129° satellite position otherwise I would lose some programming content. They wanted to send an installer to make the appropriate changes. Not often being home and just about ready to move to Florida for the winter season, I told him that I will be in touch with them when I’m back from Florida. Yesterday got a hold of my local Dishnetwork installer and told him about the call from Dish. He said that actually I should get a Dish 1000.4 aimed at 61.5, 72.7 and 77° satellite. Never got an answer from him as to why the move from 61.5 to 129 as per Dishnetwork request. Two questions: first, if I do go his way (1000.4 dish), I’m still pointing at the 61.5 sat., might as well stay as it is right now with dish 500 and second dish at 61.5. Second questions, is Dishnetwork moving their HD content to the 129 sat and that’s why they wanted me to switch over. Thanks for the help. Andy

Your English is better than most.
With your current 110/119.61.5 there are a bunch of HD channels that you are not receiving... BBCA in HD comes to mind.
Your notion that "61.5, 72.7 and 77" means that you are still pointing at 61.5 and therefore there is no need to change is mistaken.
