Want to get HD... question about dish alignment (1 Viewer)

I just got an HD tv and would like to upgrade to an HD package. We recently moved into a new house and the tech installer only found one spot where he could place the dish to get 110/119 satelites (tall trees near the house).
To receive HD, will I need another dish and will I even be able to see the satelite from my house? I don't understand satelite positioning yet, so will I be able to see the 61.5 satelite?
I live in Lock Haven, PA.

Thanks for any help/advice!

To get the 61.5, you will need a 2nd (wing) dish. Generally speaking, this dish is facing the SE...almost 90 degrees opposite to what your current 110/119 is facing. Without having more information (pictures or whatnot), it's awfully difficult to tell how good your line of sight for that bird is.
