I am preparing to purchase an oval direct tv antenna to mate with a Toshiba DST3000 HD tuner. What brand will do the best job for me. Suggestions as to "where to buy" will also be appreciated

i added a second round dish and am glad i did. much easier to align it. in addition you can use a 24" rather than an 18" dish (from radioshack.com for cheap) and you dramatically reduce rain fade.

I agree with Indygreg, I installed my elliptical dish today and the signal sucks. The best signal I get for the 101 bird is 63 and from the 119 bird is 40. The picture looks the same as if I had the 18" dish but if we get bad weather here in Southern CA I might get some even lower signals. We did have very high clouds here today tho, so that is something to think about I guess. Ither way go with the two dish system. Good luck on what ever you decide.
