SuperDish and Receivers (How many Dishes?)

You only need one SuperDish. The switches will do the rest (although the SuperDish only comes with one DP34).
DISH Network vs DirecTV: HD Channel List - DISH Network HD Capacity, HD Conversion and more.
DISH Network complete channel lists and lists by satellite location are in The Uplink Activity Center.
Unless otherwise noted, I speak for myself. Content is not controlled by DISH Network, DirecTV or any other company.

Basically, the DP34 has inputs for three satellites. With the Dish500, they will just connect the wires from 110 and 119 (from the Dish500) into 2 of the 3 ports on the DP34. Then, when they change it to SuperDish, they'll just run one more wire from the dish to the DP34 -- and connect it to that third input. So, in the end, there will be very little changes needed -- just a dish swap and the one extra run.
If they know they are doing the SuperDish soon, they might even run all three cables when they install the Dish500 -- just so it'll just be a dish swap only later.
