Hi there,


Just got a second receiver (HD100) and caught NYPD Blue last night (Fresno's first HDTV broadcast!!!)


I still have not tuned in Directv HD.


Can I add a second round 18" dish (single LNB) pointed to 119 and get everything on the HD100?


My current dish is pointed at 101 and is dual LNB.


Thanks

David,


You are going to need two items to get HBO and the 199 Demo/PPV channels from DTV:


1. Another 18" which you point at the 119 Sat.


2. A Multiswitch which combines the 101 and 119 sat feed into one output so all you have to do is change channels like you normally do. You can use an A/B switch but it becomes a hassel after a while.


You also have the option to get the new Oval dish which has the twin LNB's (one for each sat) and the multiswitch as a package. I think it runs around $130.


Should you decide to do anything you can go to www.dishdepot.com and they will help you with your needs.


The advantage to 2 18" dishes versus a single Oval is higher signal strength which helps with rain fade.
