The problem is, I dont want dish, i want DirecTV. I have a couple DVRs, one being the HDTV DVR, and i'd perfer to stick with them rather than having to buy all new Dish hardware.
So, assuming my HOA is okay with me changing to D*, how difficult is it to setup? Is it simply a matter of pointing the E* dish at the D* sattelites. The dish that is on the roof is the 500... in order to get the D* HDTV channels and what not, would i have to put up the oval D* dish?
If i do have to put up the oval dish, is it as simple as just hooking the cables into the oval dish?
Thanks for the help.

Until I am able to get permission to put up a different dish, is it possible to use the current E* dish with my D* receivers?
As CCarncross stated earlier, no, you can't use the other dish.
