Currently I have a 110/199 with a 61.5 wing hookup. They run into a DPP33 switch and then to three receivers.

Because of the recent requirement to get 129 in order to get the newer HD channels, i'll need to upgrade to a 1000.2

My understanding is the 1000.2 is not compatible with the DPP33. Will I need a new switch to support 3 receivers or will I be able to run 3 right off the dish. If I want a 4th receiver I'll have to upgrade to a DPP44?

Also, will it be required to run 3 lines out of the dish?

3 dual or single lnbs / "w" bracket / 3 lines to the 33 switch

or

1000.2 lnb and dish / 3 lines / eliminate the 33 switch (you won't need it with the 1000.2 lnb.)

Does Dish cover the cost of the dpp44?

The visit will only cost me $15 since I have the protection plan.

Also, can't the 61.5 tie into the 1000.2 and then only three lines out of the 1000.2 to the receivers?

I just checked with Dish to see what dish they'd be installing and they said 1000.4 since I need 61.5. I thought I needed 1000.2 to get 129 but he said the new HD is on 129 and 72.7. Is that correct?

And if they install the 1000.4, would it be necessary to still have the 110/119 dish? Or can I get everything on 1000.4?

The new HD is on 129 & 72.5

If they do a EA install (1000.4) then the 110/119 is not needed. Everything that is on 110/119 is on Eastern Arc (and in MPEG4)

You can get everything you need off of the eastern arc dish 1000.4. IF you want you could use a side sat for any other sat you want and plug it into the in port of the eastern arc lnb for 4 sats and 3 runs into your house. But you must use a single lnb or dishpro dual to aim the side sat ,not a twin lnb. I have eastern arc 77/72.7/61.5 and a side sat for 110 , but I set it up like this when I had hd distants from L.A. from AAD . But I could just as easily move it to 119 or 129 if I wanted.
