    There is no main sat, there are set according to your location and for international programing. NJ would use WA for SD (110, 119) but EA for HD (61.5. 72 and 77)

    International programming comes off satellite 118.7, but you would also need another satellite for software downloads, and EPG updates. For your setup, so long as you do not need HD, you would get a 500+ to receive 119/110/118.7
