I looking to get info on the new dish network sat if possible. I'm getting dish tommorrow as I had a problem with directv and the 103 sat(tree). The 99 and 101 are great but 103 is weak. I'm told dish network uses a new direction and elevation for HD. I guess the question is how much higher is the new bird from N.C. then the 103. I have the older ipod itouch 3 gen so the apps won't work from what I'm seeing. Thanks again for all the help.
