Right now I have Dish 500 system with 4900 receiver.

1. If I get a 6000 receiver, and just replace the 4900 is there anything extra I need to install?

2. How about if I install the 6000 receiver, and keep the 4900 as a second receiver, anything extra needed?

3. Anything extra needed if I get 811 and just replace the 4900?

4. How about if I add 811 and use 4900 as second receiver?

5. When I add SuperDish, will I need to add anything to the above?

Thanks for your help,

Jeff

Not really, unless you want HBO HD or SHOWTIME HD before you get superdish
2. How about if I install the 6000 receiver, and keep the 4900 as a second receiver, anything extra needed?
Not knowing what switch/lnb setup you have on your 500 not sure other than an additional coax from dish for second receiver
3. Anything extra needed if I get 811 and just replace the 4900?
same answer as #1
4. How about if I add 811 and use 4900 as second receiver?
same answer as #2
5. When I add SuperDish, will I need to add anything to the above?
No the superdish will replace your dish 500
