I am a former Voom subscriber and current awful cable subscriber. I am looking at the new Dish offerings with HD. I have one HDTV and 3 SDTVs that I will be connecting. I would like to have at least one dvr, possibly two. If anyone would care to steer me in the right direction,(what equipment, best place to purchase and how much) it would be much appreciated. BTW, this is my first post. Thanks in advance.

I would go with the 622 HD DVR, it would supply your HDTV and 1 SDTV and a 625 SD DVR, it would supply the other 2 SDTV's. I would use a local installer 1st choice as long as he has a good reputation. This depends on cabling in place and the available option to possible add cabling if needed. You will incur DVR fees unless you go with the Everything pack.

What does the 1000.2 dish do that previous models don't. Should I request this when I place an order?

Thanks

The new dish 1000.02 is the replacement that supposedly gives you better signal strength on the 129 sat since it is an inch bigger and the arm mast is longer . It also will allow you to plug another dish into the built in dish pro plus 44 switch so you can see 4 satellites. I don't know if it is available yet but I am sure it is expensive to get alone. You ought to wait till they are more widespread available. You can check online store sights for the new dish at either: www.dishdepot.com or www.dishstore.net .
