    I'm changing from a triple-LNB dish (101/110/119) to a new Slimline to move to HD. I live in SF Bay area, and don't need other locals. Do I need anything from the 110/119 or is the new 3-LNB slimline enough? I'm sure this info is somewhere here and obvious, just not to me, so I apologize if I didn't search properly.

    Thanks

    Foreign programing is about all that's still on 119. Your locals [both SD & HD] don't come from either.
    110 is the old HD that's on 99/103 also.

    In the Bay Area, 110 isn't needed at all and 119 is only needed for Latino or Chinese (the Jade World package) programming.

    I've been wondering for some time if there's ever going to be a move to discontinue use of the 119. I live near and work in both 72.5/MP4 and SD119 local markets, and I'm curious if D* will ever to a complete SL3 MP4local transition in the SD119 market. I'm not sure if it'd be cost effective for them to invest in all of the equipment and labor to make the transition, but I'd love to have that much pending work.
