I signed up for AT 250 and HD Essentials and locals for 5 sets. Two boxes (one "enhanced" which I assume is a 722 and one other) for 4 sets and I guess I'll have to put a splitter off of one to go to the 5th set.

I'm in NW NC and I think the dish has to be pointed WSW. If that's correct then there is a roof area (over a non-living space) where the dish can be mounted.

Anything to be wary of, installation wise? Like which dish gets installed, ill-advised shortcuts that might be attempted?

Looking forward to learning about all this stuff!

Thanks, I should be getting some local HD according to E*, on the 61.5 sat. Am I going to need one dish or two?

Two. A Dish 500 pointed at 110/119 and probably another dish 500 with 1 LNB at 61.5. Dish has a 1 dish east coast solution in the works (see the Eastern Arc sticky thread), but that isn't available yet.
