Which dish do I need?
Posted 03 August 2010 - 03:12 PM
I am having to install all of this myself due to issues that I can't discuss on this forum. And can any of you give me pointers or things to think about when doing this? I just do not want to make a mistake and end up wasting money.

If the issues you're referring to involve locals, without knowing where the heck you are we can't peg whether you need a .4 or a .2

Jackson HD is on 61.5 (Eastern Arc, 1000.4 dish).
But concerning the dish, because I live about 100 miles due north of New Orleans, LA., would I need a 1000.2 or a 1000.4 dish?
New Orleans HD locals are on 129 (Western Arc, 1000.2 dish).
Well you know how we feel about this. Get the locals for the market you're in. Both markets are available in HD ... and if you're in the New Orleans market that includes a CW channel.

Problem is that I live in Mississippi and want to receive the Jackson channels but Dish says otherwise. They say I am in Baton Rouge market. But I never go to Louisiana. I do all my shopping, doctors, hospital visits, etc.... in Jackson. I should not have to be forced to watch news, sports, weather, advertisements that don't effect me nor interest me.
You can thank the FCC for deciding that satellite tv providers have to provide you locals based on Nielsen's DMA maps whether it happens to make sense where you live or not.
