I got another convert into HDTV world today. He came over and saw my system and recently had bought a new Mits 509 set, and decided to go for it. However, he currently has the Ultimate TV thingie, so I guess he has a single elliptical with two LNBs, one for DirecPC and the other for regular DirecTV. Is the DirecPC stuff by any chance on the same sat as the HD stuff and use the same band? Or will he have to put up a second dish to get the sat channels? He's just doing OTA for the moment.

Nevermind, found the answer with a search. Looks likes it no go. They use different LNB types. So I guess he's going to have to do a second dish. He could just get away with a single round dish though, but the STB came with another elliptical. Anyone in the Silicon Valley area would maybe like to trade a round one for an elliptical one? He's kind of short on space and the round one would take up a lot less room probably.

Thanks. I'll pass that link on to him and see if he wants to take a whack at it.
