I currently have 2 301s and a DP 500. I am going to replace one of the 301s with a 6000 receiver so I can get the HD content. I was also going pick up Dish 1000 so I can get the 3 birds.

I have heard that one 301 receiver is enough to power a dish pro system, whatever that means. But, My question is, will the Dish1000 work with the 6000? If not what else do I need to make this setup (a 301 and a 6000) work? I'd prefer a single dish solution if at all possible.

The 6000 receiver will work with the Dish 1000, but I would get the 811 reciever for HD instead. The 811 is more modern than the 6000 and you may also have to get a DP adapter for it.

I had a 6000 that went south, Instead of another 6000u like I wanted they replaced it with an 811... I am really pleased so far with it, the guide is sooooo much better and it has pass through video (s video and component active at same time )

I already have the 6000. I'd rather not buy another HD receiver thats going to end up having to be replaced anyway when Dish goes to Mpeg4.

So a DP adapter is all I need?

The Dish1000 ships with a DishPro Plus Twin LNBF and a DishPro Single or Dual LNBF. As long as you have at least one DishPro receiver connected to the dish, you can have a legacy receiver connected to the other port. No DishPro adapter is required. Some legacy receivers are not compatible with the 129 satellite. The model 6000 is compatible.
