Hi, all, first visit since 2004 ;)

Just had DN installed (Top 250, HD, locals) here in 46254 and am surprised, after subsequent research, that the installer put up a 1000.2 rather than a 1000.4... The LOS and elevation for the 1000.4 look more favorable to me. Is there any particular reason to favor one over the other?

Indy HD LIL are on 129W and the SD LIL are on 110W. There was never any question which dish you would get.

Thanks... I suspected all the LIL's weren't on both constellations. Now it's off to install a Slingbox and start the process of learning how DN works (I haven't had cable or satellite for a few years).
