I am totally confused by the discussion of the Superdish. I did a search and read the past posts and am still confused. My current setup used a 500 dish to receive the 110 and 119 satellites and the smaller 18" dish for the 61.5 satellite. I have two cable runs -- one from a switch that combines the 500 dish and the small 18" 61.5 dish to goes to a 6000 HD tuner and a second cable run from the 500 dish that goes to an older 2800 receiver that is connected to a stand-alone TIVO unit.


(1) Will the Superdish be a third (!!) dish? Or will it replace the 500 dish or the smaller 18" 61.5 dish?


(2) Will the Superdish be aimed in roughly the same direction as the 500 dish? (important in my case due to trees)


(3) Once the Superdish is available, will the HBO and Showtime HD channels be immediately available on the new satellite?


(4) Will the Superdish be able to run two receivers as the 500 dish now can?


(5) In order to combine two dishes to one or two receivers -- I assume the SW21 won't work with the Superdish and the DP34 must be used with the Dishpro adapter with either the 6000 or the 2800?


(6) I already get the top DISH package along with the HD package. So the Superdish would be free?

Marty, you already received many, many answers to these questions on at least two other forums where you cross posted. They were good answers, too. Rather than using a scattergun approach maybe you could post to one at a time to see if you get an answer since many of the folks read many different forums.

Not meaning to be nasty or anything, just a bit of advice cuz it may rankle some to see the exact same questions posted on 3 or 4 different sites. :)

Replaces the Dish500

More or less.

Unknown at this time, but I would guess probably shortly after, if not before.

The SuperDish will be using DishPro technology, so the SW21 will probably not be necessary.

And I agree with Andy - one post in each of the various forums is quite unnecessary - ONE POST IN ONE FORUM should be plenty

Andy and Scooper:


Thanks for the response. I will be guided by your advice about cross-posting and will not do so in the future.


Thanks again.


My apologies for the cross-posting.


Marty
