    I stated this and it's my bad, sorry. The wording does suggest that the signal is received without a dish. But I'm still waking up and taking things to literally.

    It would seem the poll should more positively reflect the possibillity of having both at the same time.

    I live in the Los Angeles area. I think I am going to order the wing dish at 148 and wait. If Dish does not mirror the Voom channels in couple of months, I may use it to order some internationals over there. Now I am glad I did not order the SuperDish-121 for $200 for internationals. I also qualify for free dish at 148 since 3 of the locals are still on 148. My elevation for 61.5 from the point dish screen is 19 degrees, but my immediate neighbor has medium tall trees on the way.

    I believe the point of the poll was to show E* that they NEED to mirror the Voom channels onto 148. Having a 61.5 dish doesn't support the need.

    A simpler way of putting it would be "I need mirrors on 148 to get Voom". But the breakdown explains why people need 148 - either because they don't have LOS to 61.5 and could/do see 148 or they already have content delivered on 148 (and shouldn't need a mini-NASA site to get Voom).

    I would buy and install my own hardware to get 148 and the extra HD channels.

    I voted for "I CAN receive a signal from 61.5W and I DON'T have a dish installed for it", because it was the closest.

    But what I really wanted to vote for was something along the lines of "I CAN receive a signal from 61.5W and I DON'T have a dish installed for it, but I DO have a dish installed for 148 already!"

    At this point, I'm planning on giving them a couple of weeks to mirror VOOM on 148, then if they don't, decide if I want to try to get a third dish and DP+44 installed, or just lose CBDHD-W and repoint the dish to 61.5.

    I am in the same position as Sharper.

    I *could* move my 148 dish to 61.5 but I simply don't want to lose CBSHD-W.

    Ditto that LG811 ... I fought for 2 months to get my waiver for CBSHD-W. No way I'm moving mine off of 148. :nono:

    No promisses.. but at Retailer Chat, even though Charlie said "at 61.5 ONLY for now" (Voom).. he added: "That may change later .. in the summer.. but right now it's ONLY at 61.5"

    Crazy that these are not on 148. Is there room for them?

    Yes. As long as they don't need more than ~32 new SD channels at 148 before they can move them off and reclaim the space.

    How about folks like me? I CAN get a signal from 61.5, and I have a dish installed for 148, because that's where my extra locals live.
