I currently have a 1000+ installed that receives 110,118.7,119,129 connected through a DPP44 into my Vip622. Would it be possible to add a wing dish to receive my Lexington, KY locals at the 77 location or will I have to switch to the eastern arc and a 1000.4 dish to receive the internationals and hd locals?

Eastern Arc dish AND a D500+ (just using the 118.7) should do the trick

Thanks. I kind of figured that would be the case. I tried my luck with the online Dish chat, but was told by the rep. that the eastern arc wasn't currently available to existing customers and they did not have an ETA. I also asked when my 2 yr agreement would be fulfilled and was told 2/8/2009. Which seems strange since I started service on 12/5/2006. Oh well, thanks again.

You could also try a dish 500 with one dp dual pointed at 77° with two dp21 switches. Port one of each DP21 would go to your DPP44, and port 2 would connect to the 77° Dish. This defeats the plus part of your dpp44 switch, so you would need two lines run to your 622.

tulsa, ok
keep in mind all your recievers must be mpeg4 vip reicevers to work on eastern arc.
