I'm looking to upgrade my 18" dish for DirecTV HD. Are all elliptical dishes the same? I'm looking at the Sony san24md1 for my yet to be delivered Zenith 1080 stb.

i had the same question a couple of weeks ago. All of the responses that i received indicated that all dishes are created equal. i also read somewhere that there are only 2 manufacturers - channel master and kti(?). When my dish arrived the other day it came in a box with channel master logos - only the dish has a direct tv logo on it. go for the best deal.

I have the same question and I just started a thread asking for opinions on TERK dishes. I've had probs with the LNBs that TERK provided and at this point, I'd answer that there is a difference between dishes. The friends of mine who've bought the RCA eliptical dish haven't had any problems.

FYI...there are several people on EBAY that sell the DirectTV eliptal 18X24 dish for less than $100. Those dishes are $149 at most retail outlets. Just do a search on "HDTV Dish"

The only question I asked when I bought (what I discovered to be) Terk Direct TV elliptical for $149 was :

Can it be hooked up to my existing line from the outside of my house to my receiver? I did not want to play around with the 4 receiver multiswitch installation. My other round dish has a dual LNB going into a separately mounted 4 receiever multiswitch.

The elliptical Terk had 4 lines coming out of internal multiswitch. No external box. I just had to hook it up to my existing line to a single sat receiver, very easy. If I want to add more, then I have to run more line from any new receiver. I have had no problems whatsoever with the the dish or connections.
