Dishnetwork satellite angles
I have an 811 HD receiver. But I was not subscribing to any of their HD programming.
They said it is not possible for me to activate any HD programming as this is an older Mpeg2 model.
So I decided to purchase a vip211 for 200$ from ebay.
I have a superdish and a seperate one covering satellites at angles 61.5, 110, 119 & 121.
When I checked lyngsat, I saw that dish has the same HD channels coming from both 129 and 61.5.
Since I dont have a dish pointing to 129, Im not sure if I will be able to get HD programming using vip211 even if I purchase it.
1. Which satellite is the mpeg4 HD coming from.
( If it is 129, then I will have to spend an additional 200$ for the new dish, switch, installation etc. )
2. Also all I want is ESPNHD and ESPN2HD for the upcoming world cup soccer. Is there any way I can get these on my 811 ?
Thanks for reading
