I now have 2 hoppers with one joey and would like to replace them with a hopper 3 and 2 joeys. I now have one dish that picks up 110 and 119 and another dish that picks up 129. Will this setup work with the hopper 3?
Thanks

All three satellites must come in on a single dish. I am guessing that your look for 129 can't be seen from that single location that has 110 and 119. How about from the 129 position, would it be able to see 100 and 119?

I'm curious about this too. I'm looking and made provisions to go back to a two set up. Since being moved to one dish, major rain and snow fade. The 1k2 is no match for the two dishes that it replaced.

I don't have a single location that will pick up all 3. I don't understand why they don't put us on the eastern arc. I am in Central Virginia.

Why don't you PM a DIRT member to clarify your options.

Central Virginia isn't close enough. Where do your locals come from? If they are from Richmond,Harrisonburg or Norfolk eastern arc works just fine. If they are Charlottesville, Roanoke, or TriCities (TN/VA) the locals are on 129. That's what determines which arc you should be on.

Charlottesville locals. They aren't even in HD. Sucks
