SatelliteGuys First Look - Dish 1000 Satellite Dish
Today we were surprised by the arrival of a Dish 1000 Satellite Dish! We quickly grabbed our camera (aka Cell Phone with a camera) and took some photos of the Dish 1000 as we unpacked the box.
The Dish 1000 is slightly larger then a Dish 500 and comes with a dish pro plus twin LNB and a Dish Pro LNB, it does not come with any kind of switch, you are to plug the 129 LNB into the DishPro Plus LNB if you only want to look at those 3 satellites, if you want to view four satellites you need a DishPro Plus 44 switch.
In going through everything we thought of a few cases where someone would need a DishPro Plus 55 or even a 66 switch to view all the programming that Dish Network offers.
Setup was actually straight forward and it went together quickly.
We were never actually able to aim the dish as the Dish was HITTING THE FENCE because of the skew and elevation needed from our location. When we get a chance we will try doing some modifications to eliminate this problem.
As this writing we were unable to test the unit out, but trust me we will get it working.
Anyways here is your SatelliteGuys FIRST LOOK at the Dish 1000! This is a real honest to goodness retail boxed Dish 1000 satellite antenna.
I apologize for the quality of the phones the camera on the cell phone was the only thing we had access to.

UPDATE - WE GOT IT WORKING!
We borrowed a meter and hooked it up to the Dish, somehow we had set the settings on the dish wrong.
Now the fence is no longer hitting the dish.
But we ran into another snag.... We did not have a receiver which can pick up 129. Does anyone know what receivers have software for 129?
We are making progress!Scott

How much are they charging for this dish? I wonder if they will allow you to upgrade with a year's commitment? I also wonder if they are making this dish availble because of the upcoming mpeg4 transition? I sure hope they will talk about this on the Aug 8 the tech chat.

"The Dish 1000 is slightly larger then a Dish 500 and comes with a dish pro plus dual LNB and a Dish Pro LNB"
Hey Scott...did you mean dish pro plus TWIN lnb instead of "dual"
Otherwise, this looks great! Can't wait to start installing them
