Just called today to upgrade to HD. I have Dish 500 quad. I told tech I needed a wing dish at 61.5 to get the Washington DC local HD channels. This was news to him!! Tech said I needed dish 1000 to get all other HD on 129. Won't the 61.5 pick up all the HD channels? I live in the West Virginia hills and I'm not sure I can pick up 129. From what I have learned from the forum...I should be able to keep my 500 quad and get my HD from an additonal dish pointed to 61.5. Is this correct and will my installer know this? Any advantage to getting a dish 1000 since it has been ordered for me? Install date 3/28.
