Currently have 4 recievers. 811, 501, 508, and 510. Using legacy equipment.
Dish500 and 61.5 for Voom and an SW64. Looking to purchase a 942 or possibly contact Dish and try the lease approach. Either way, I need to upgrade to Dish pro lnbs and switches. Pretty sizeable up-front costs. What are the chances Dish would upgrade my setup to Dish pro for free, if I were to purchase or convince them to lease me a 942?

Just got off the phone w/ Tech support. He told me a $50 charge would cover the upgrade to Dish Pro hardware. ( lnbs and switches included ) No luck on leasing a 942. At least with the Tech person. I may try the ceo email address.
