    No. You'll get all the national HD with your setup and a 211.

    What about me? I currently have 2 dishes. (a dish 500 and a single dish) I don't have 61.5.

    Will I get a dish 1000 or a third dish? (4 if u count direct tv)

    well, only sorta correct. it's true you'd get the national programming with that setup, but if/when HD locals arrive, you'd be out of luck, most likely.

    In OK, Dish will want you running on a 1000 so you can see 129, which is the likely location of your HD locals once they arrive, if you have any to get. If you don't have locals to get in HD, well then, it doesn't matter if you are getting 61.5 or 129 :)

    bucky, good luck tuesday night! you'll need it in a few weeks probably.

    anyway, to your question. Where are you? What is the single dish looking at?

    basically, if you are west of Washington DC, and going north, west of harrisburg PA up to a little east of Buffalo, or down in non Panhandle Florida, you would likely get the 1000 solution. Mostly it depends on where your HD locals would end up as to which set of dishes you'd need. As long as your locals won't be on 61.5, you only need 1 dish.

    Not sure what u mean about tuesday night.
    I'm an hour north of LA. I get my HD locals OTA right now. I have 119, 110 and 148. I dont have 61.5 or 129. Isnt that where all the new HD (voom) channels are?

    LA HD locals are on 129, so you'd want to get the 1000 for 110/119/129. Do you really need 148 anymore? If not, just drop that dish.

    as to Tuesday night, if you didn't get that, you must not be watching AI :) hence, why I wished you good luck, as you must be 'on' AI haha (one of the top 12's name is bucky, in case you don't watch)
