Do you want HD locals and if so, which DMA are you located in: Bakersfield 129°, Chico/Redding 129°, El Centro (Yuma, AZ) SD only, Fresno 129°, Los Angeles 129°, Medford (OR) SD only, Monterey/Salinas 129°, Palm Springs, Reno (NV) 129°, Sacramento 110°, San Diego 110°, San Francisco 119°, or Santa Barbara 129°. Links to maps showing these can be found here. Just scroll down to California.

If HD locals aren't important to you or you are in one of the few on 110° or 119°, then you could do a Dish+ setup to get 110°, 118° and 119°. You would not be able to get the HD programming on 129° which if you can see here by scrolling down the channel numbers from 9400 down.

As I noted in an earlier post on this thread, which you quoted, the HD signals are spread across 129 and 110. You need both sats to get all the HD channels.

According to the information on the Echostar Knowledge Base Channel Chart both the HD and SD locals for Sacramento are on 110°.

The 500+ setup will get you 118.7°, 119°, and 110°. You can go to the Dish Tech Portal site on the 500 dishes and click on the 500+ and then the various sublinks to get the basic info you need.

Without 129° you will not get the HD channels you mentioned (cnn, cartoonnetwork , msnbc, foxnews). But a Classic Bronze ($34.99/mo) with HD ($10.00/mo) and locals ($5.00/mo) package along with your internationals ($?.??) would give you what you want in SD plus a fair amount of programming in HD. It's not what I'd recommend for most people, but since you have the HD box and apparently your household is mostly interested in certain internationals, you'd be receiving a good package of programming.
