Can a Dish 500 be used for 119/129 effectively with the 10 degree seperation of 119-129 vs the 9 degree 110-119?

How much do you give up in terms of signal if this is possible? 129 isn't the most stable signal as it is now anyway.

Yes it can.
And will actually handle 129 slightly better than a Dish 1000, as youre only balancing it with 119, as opposed to 119 & 110.
As for 10 degrees instead of 9. That is nothing when talking about DBS. And anyway, those are rounded numbers anyhow. The actuals for both are closer to 9.5

Okay IF you use one for 129 and 119 how about 110? ARe you giving up something on 110 and 119 to get the 129 on the dish500?

If he has any kind of E* DVR, he'll be giving up the 9-day guide for starters... ;) ;)

could be line of site issue with 110 not being able to be seen in the same spot as 119 & 129, requiring a seperate dish for 110.
Or edge of spotbeam nessasitating a bigger dish for 110.

No, I have 110 on 2 other dishes right now - so i wont be loosing it.

Temporary solution while moving stuff around....but i start projects and sometime move to other things in the middle :D - so have to make sure it will work for a while
