    Anyone got any updates on the time for the 1 dish solution to be up and going? I can't wait to install D500 and 1000's instead of the heavy honkin superdish!

    :)

    Thanks
    Mike

    I might be wrong, but isn't the superdish just 1 dish? :p

    Mike,

    The one Dish solution is NOT mandating Dish or DirecTV come up with ONLY one Dish any and all Service from either or company.

    The One Dish Solution mandates that only ONE DISH be required for your Local channels. This means that markets that have some locals on a core slot and some on a wing slot like either 148, or 61.5 have to be all available from a one Dish Solution, BTW THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO LOCAL HD STATIONS.

    This means ONE DISH, whether that be, Dish 500, Dish 1000, or SuperDish.

    The side effect is E*'s announced plans not to have locals on SuperDish.
    They do have a lease in place for 105° - so expect something else to appear there eventually.
    E* owned 121° will continue to be used for international channels.

    James,


    Yes, but you also have to remember that Dish will use 121 for Locals for the Northeast for some time, since 129 is NOT an option in the Northeast. This is also true for the Extreme Southeast as well.

    Just to be clear, the HD Locals from any one given TV market DO have to be available using one dish. However it does not have to be the same dish as the SD locals. And neither the SD or HD locals have to be available on the same dish as the "regular" programming.

    See ya

    um, no, that is what 61.5 serves. for non international programming, only a combo of 61.5 or 129, and 110/119 are needed. Not sure what's on 148, but whatever it is, it's likely covered elsewhere or is special. Obviously Dish plans for everyone to get 1000's that can possibly get them. That makes their life simple. 61.5 is an unfortunate requirement, but does allow for more room on ther others for the rest of the country's locals :)

    I'm lost. All of Amarillo's locals are on 148. Since all the locals are one one bird/sat. That's good enough for the One Dish Solution? right? Or will our locals be moved so the 1000 or SD can pick them up?

    We ae making this way too complicated. As tony pointed out the One dish solution means that all of the SD locals must be receivable on one dish and all of the HD. But those two don't necessarily have to be receivable on the same dish nor does core programming have to be there.

    So if all of the locals fora market were on let's say 148 that is OK. The sub would then need one dish for core programming (110/119) and another fr 148. But the legal requirement for one dish would be satisfied.

    I talked to a CSR today at dishnetwork to get a super dish and they asked me to wait till April 1st for the launch of their new all-in-one dish :) . He said that I will need 18 month commitment to get the all-in-one dish installed for free..:nono2:

    110° is an option ... that's where the 105° and 121° locals are going. (I doubt that the mirrors on 129° will remain after E10 comes online.)

    Correct. All your locals are available on one dish.


    This is for everyone, one more time. I will write individual statements below. Each statement stands alone and does not in any way influence any other statement. They are in no way connected to each other:

    Statement 1)
    All Standard Definition local channels from any one given market have to be available to subscribers on one dish.

    Statement 2)
    All High Definition local channels from any one given market have to be avilable to subscribers on one dish.

    Notice that the one dish rule does NOT say that they have to be on the same dish as the core programming.

    Notice that the one dish rule does NOT say that the HD channels and the SD channels have to be on the same dish.

    Finally,
    Notice that the word used is DISH and not "satellite location". This means that locals can be spread out on 110/119/129/121/105 in any combination as long as the one dish that is required to get the local channels can pick up all the locals.

    The confusion comes in when people try to combine any of the sepatrated statements above. Each is its own thing. None influence any other.

    The car is blue.
    The train goes fast.

    That does not mean that the blue train goes fast into the car. :)

    See ya

    I am upgrading my legacy receiver to a DVR 625. I subscribe to south asian programming and Dish SFO locals along with Dish 120. Is it necessary to upgrade my dish 500 and single dish pointed to 148 to receive current and future HDTV programming (assuming I upgrade to a HD receiver in the future)?

    Current HD programming is at 110 and 129. The HD programming on 129 is also mirrored at 61.5. The asian programming is at 121 and 148. The Asian programming at 148 is also mirrored at 61.5.

    See http://ekb.dbstalk.com/dishlist.htm to see where all the channels are.

    So I will need coverage for 110, 119, 121 and 129. Can this be achieved with a dish 500 and dish 300 combination or will I need a Superdish replacement to the Dish500?

    Does the upgrade include a Dish 1000 and DPP44 switch as well?

    TS,


    If you need 121 then you must get a SuperDish to replace your Dish 500 and you will also need a Dish Pro Plus 44 switch. The LNBF on your Dish for 129 will also have to be a Dish Pro LNBF, and NOT a Dish Pro TWIN.

    Dish will not be also installing a Dish 1000, just a SuperDish and a Dish 300 for 129.
