I would like to know from those who have the JAYA TV programming along with a traditional America 120/200 HD package, if you are using two dishes or a single dish. DISH tells me I need two dishes but I have seen DISH 1000+ mentioned here that can receive south asian packages in addition to the US programming in HD.

Also, if you have two dishes, do they run two cables all the way to VIP722 or do they daisey chain them and run a single cable? What is the best number to call to talk to tech savvy customer service people to get all my answers.

Also, do they not show PBS in HD still?
thanks

You will probably get a 1000.4 Eastern Arc dish which is not capable of receiving 118.7 for internationals. You would need a second dish probably a 500+ for the internationals. The 1000.4 will have an open port to add internationals so only 1 cable is needed.

DISH and tech savy CSRs do not go together CSRs are only salesmen who will tell you what you want not always the truth.
