I've not done the trigonometry, but I would imagine that the superdish install will be tough for a DIYer because we're now dealing with 3 birds. The 110/119 require elevation and skew (as well as azimuth), but the 105 slot may also entail a separate inclination adjustment. Once the procedures get "out" into the public domain and the "bugs" have been worked out by a lot of DIYers, then they may loosen this "restriction" but, initially, to prevent as much bad publicity as possible (as in, why can't I get this @#$@#$*(& thing to align?), they may "require" professional installation to guarantee that you have the best service possible from DISH as a provider. You always have the right to supervise the installation and require it be done in a certain fashion (like cable runs, location, etc.). If the installer doesn't want to cooperate, you can always (try to) remind him/her that this is YOUR property and that they are providing YOU with a service. For me, I'll take the local installer as if he makes a mistake, I've got someone to blame and someone to fix the mistake. YMMV
On the more finished looking mockup, the 3 LNBs are rigidly fixed relative to one another. I do not think the setup will be any more difficult than the Dish 500 is now.
