    Hi,

    I currently have two dishes in my roof: One dish 500 (110 and 119) and one regular (61.5)...they are connected via a switch SW-21 to my dish 501.

    Do I need dishpro LNB to connect to the new MPEG-4 receivers?

    Or will this setup work on those mpeg-4 receivers.

    Thanks

    If you are getting a single tuner receiver, your current setup will work. If you want a dual tuner you would either need a second sw-21 (assuming dual lnb on 61.5 with a twin on 110/119) or upgrade to DishProPlus (switch would be built into the twin).

    By dual tuner, you mean like a VIP-622? I have the same set up as the above poster, can I switch out my 2 811 receivers with 2 of the new VIP single tuner receivers as well?

    ...and would that include the HD locals if available?
