Does this dish contain the switch that will enable it to be a single coax solution?

What is the difference between this dish and the AT-9? What multiswitches will this new dish require? I need to buy a new switch, and I was just about to order the WB68 in anticipation of my local HDs later in the year (Hartford, CT). Thanks!

The new dish will be functionally equivelent of the AT-9. i.e. four outputs that can be cascaded via WB-68 multiswitch(es)

No, but there is another device in the Webcast PDF, that shows promise that may get to a single cable solution
