    if you are only getting 40, one of several things are wrong, dish is pointed incorrectly (most likely) lnb is bad, cabling and accesories are bad, or receiver is bad. you should be able to maintain anywhere between 85-120 for signal, so try repointing first than try other alternatives

    Superdish 121 vs Dish 1000

    no they are not identical, the 1000 is just a little bit bigger than the 500 dish, the 121, needs to be that big due to the FSS signal(121), you probably had the 121 for local channels, which will be moved to the 110 location soon, at that time you will not need that location
