I live in charleston, wv and i tried to see my local nbc in hd and all i could see was the standard definition channel. not only that according to dish networks website, i should also have abc and fox in hd. they have the channel listing as ch 5200 for abc and ch 5203 for fox. can someone tell me what gives. after being on the phone for an hr and trying different things, the csr told me they were in the process of moving satellites and that is why the nbc wasent coming in. could some one help me with this and tell me if they are receiving any of these channels. thanks a lot.

I also live in Charleston, WV. These channels are on the 77W satellite. In order to see it, you either have to have a 1000.4 dish (EA dish) or a wing dish pointed at 77W.

If you do have the correct dish setup, you might need the new smartcards in your receivers. I'll find that out tonight when I get my wing dish hooked up.

Also, we should be getting all 4 of our locals in HD now. All coming off the 77W sat.

What is your current satellite setup? I currently have a 1000.2 (110,119,129) with a 500 (pointing to 77).

I used to have the dish 500 and the superdish. I now have just the dish 1000.

Did they charge you for this? My HD locals are on a satellite that I don't receive. I tried talking to them about having someone install a satellite so I can see them, but they stated it would be a $60 fee.

$60 fee OR a 2-year commitment. And if you try the online chat (might have to try a few times to get the answer you want) you can usually get it without either.

What is the azimuth and elevation and skew for 77, I just found out about it and also have a 500 and a 1000.2 I haven't used the 500 for years, but I could change it myself. The point dish screen doesn't give you this.
