Current Setup: (1) 625, (1) 322, SuperDish with 3 LNB's

Want to add 211 at another location in house. I will be getting another
DP34 to link to the current one to add the receiver. My biggest question is if my current dish is sufficient to pick up all that I need or do I need to upgrade it too??

I will be doing all the work myself as I am still in the middle of my current lease contract with Dish.

Thanks for any replies and walk-throughs.

Your current Dish will pick up most of the programming on one of the HD metallic packages but not all of it. You're going to need another Dish pointed at either 61.5 or 129 to get all of the HD programming. This is not a case of can't get it, don't pay for it either btw. You're going to be paying for these channels if you want to receive HD programming. So you'll also need to get a DP21 switch or swap the DP34 for a DPP44 . The additional DP21 would be the cheaper option but the DPP44 would make things a lot easier. Because then you could just run a single cable to both the 322 and 625 or in this case use one of the existing runs and then run that into a DPP seperator for each receiver.
