It depends where you live.. I see you're from California so I guess they could just put up one dish, although you would get better signal from two. It shouldn't matter as long as the setup isn't ugly.

IMHO.....Should have gone directly to DISH and talked to someone in Tech Support. THey have been able to help me with a lot of questions. Try an avoid talking to a DISH CSR, they can be iffy with their answers.

Would this be true even to receive HD programming? I'm really thinking of jumping into HD, but LOS could be a problem for me with all the trees. Detroit area.

the reason AK, HI and PR need 2 dishes is because they need larger dishes (and those can't be skewed)

HI uses a 30"
AK uses a 4 footer
PR uses 6 footer

Detroit would use a D1000

sorry :)

I always here people saying they use a 1.8m...maybe thats for 110
Trust me,we don't anymore,On the beginning of Dishnetwork in Puerto Rico that was the standard even now some Retailers sell those for HD, just to be uniform on the setup,But that setup can cost the costumer around $2,500:confused: .But is not necessary for programing,I always install my costumers 4 footers just in case because the signals drops sometimes.But only as a precaution.
