Have a friend who is thinking about installing HD at his ranch in South Texas. What would be the easiest and cheapest equipment (Dish type, multi-switch, etc) to install? Would be looking at 3 or 4 receivers, of which one might be SD.

Suggest to your friend that "easiest and cheapest" doesn't always provide the best results. What he should want is a quality install done by a professional.

Either call DirecTV and set up an account and the install, or find a local dealer that handles DirecTV and do the same with them. He can also order an account and equipment through Solid Signal.
