Asked about the new hd last night and was told that I would have to have a tech come out and put up the 1000.4 dish...im in the charlotte area and i have 2 sats on my roof now 61.5 and 110/118/and one more number...would he be able to get rid of the 2 sats on my roof and just use the 1000.4 and is that a good dish and would i need any new equipment...have a 622 and a 211 right now...

Would have to pay the 6 bucks for the dhhp and then the 15 bucks for the tech so i wasnt sure if this is worth all the trouble...i know this is the best place to come for help

Thanks in advance

I live in the Charlotte DMA & use ONLY a 1000.4. If you subscribe to international programming on 118, you will have to retain that dish, otherwise the one 1000.4 is all that you need.

Charlotte HD locals use to be on 118.7 so that might be why he has it

Installers just set me up with a 1000.4. They left just minutes ago.

As I posted in the 2/10 uplink thread, I don't have the DHPP and my upgrade was free. I now have the new HD channels.

Folks, did you hear me? FREE!

As far as the old dishes go, they left them here along with the LNB's. The new dish is on a temporary mount in the yard as there was snow up on the roof where the old 500 and 300 are.

They did leave a very long antenna run so my options on where the dish will permanently go vary widely. They even gave me an extra wire for an additional antenna as the cables come in pairs. My DDP44 switch supports another satellite input. I wonder if there is anything I could do with my 300 antenna. The 500 will come down when the snow is gone.
