I've gotten some conflicting info on dish(es) needed, so wanted to see if anyone here knows...

In order to get the HDs on the 622 (or 211), do you need a Dish 1000 (and/or multiple dishes)? I know you can get multiple dishes to point to sats like 110/119 and 61.5, and the way I currently understand it a single Dish 1000 would cover most service areas (does the 1000 then point to 121 instead of 61.5?) but was wondering if there's anyway a single Dish 500 is enough, depending on your service area.

I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and Dish tech support didn't know what I'd need and the CSRs gave all sorts of answers. I currently have a Dish 500 with a Quad LNBF. I don't have any additional switches or anything like that. When the 622 arrives, it will be the only Dish receiver active on my account (deactivating my other receivers.)
