My non-HD DTV receiver and dish went bad (lightning?), and the repair tech says my DTV will replace my equipment but that I could talk them into an HD receiver and dish for a minimal fee if I agree to remain an HD customer for a year...or something like that.


I have to call DTV soon, and I've searched, but want to get whatever I may need for the forseeable future (which, in this business, is murky). What dish setup should I push for?


I want to do it as simply as possible, and avoid the hassles I read about in the "Sat C" thread at the top of this forum. I gather it allows for all HD satellites.


Is there a dish setup that meets the requirements that comes already set up with the proper switches, etc?

You need a new 18x24 elliptical dish that can handle three LNB's. They usually come with 2 LNB's installed and a multi-switch on the back of the dish. The SAT C upgrade is the third LNB that connects to the dish and the multi-switch.
