I currently have superdish and a dish 500 in order to receive the full complement of HD programming, plus my locals (in SD). Is there any way I can get the same channels from just one dish? My area code is 30458 (Southeast GA, about 50 miles west of Savannah). Thanks for your help.

maybe...it all depends on which sat your locals come in on and what if anything you are getting on the 121.Unless you are getting the locals on the 121,about the only thing on that sat is international.The dish 500 you have is prob,pointed at the 61.5 or the 129 for your HD.You could prob go to a single dish 1000,but we would need more info to answer the question completely.If you are not getting international and your locals are not on the 121,your best bet would be to go with a 1000 if you want just 1 dish.
