The biggest improvement between these two is the 1000.2 is easier to align. The 1000 is much more particular on getting a sutible 129 level. The triple lnb on the 1000.2 has greater receiver capacity..........a winner, overall.
Probably not many of you out there, but has anyone replaced a 1000+ with a 1000.2? The 1000+ is a bit bigger, but there are 3 separate LNB housings for the 4 sats, and I'm wondering if I might get a better signal with the triple LNB on the 1000.2, even though the dish is smaller. (btw, I dont subscribe to anything on 118.7 anymore, so dont need that sat anymore).
Not sure - if you can measure distances between center of each LNBF, plus a distance between middle LNBF and center of the dish. I can do same for D1k2. It could be different then it will affect SS, especially for side LNBFs - 110 and 129.
I've been experiencing fairly inconsistent issues w/129.
I had an appointment set for Monday, but after reading posts regarding 129 issues, I called Dish again and reiterated the necessity for me to take the day off for service, and to please make sure the installer has all the correct assets at their disposal to make it a 1 day event.
So in calling Dish, I asked the CSR supervisor to make sure the installer brings a new 1000.2 antenna and LNB. She said she modified the order for the appointment on Monday, 0800-1200.
