Brian: you are indeed fortunate to have a family member in the business, if you're looking for the best regular programming with best picture, C=band with a 4dtv receiver is the way to go.
For high def movies, just add an HDD200 decoder to the 4dtv.
The ku channels have a lot of wild feeds and can be interesting but as your father-in-law will tell you, more for the hobbyist than family watching.
Even tho you don't see much in most of the forums about this format and it isn't promoted, bear in mind all cable programming is pulled from these satellites and the down conversion with long cable runs is what ruins the picture quality, you won't have that problem and once watched, nothing else will do as well. When you watch analog in this format, and listen to the more dynamic sounds, you wonder why its being switched to digital, the answer to that is profit and bottom line.
