Great information, thanks for all the help! Tech will be out next week to install the new dish. I'll let him take the extra BBCs.

I'm really liking the HR20 over my tivo 10-250.

I'd keep the BBC's, they can go bad.

I would probably keep a pair for yourself. These have been known to fail frequently, and may come in handy when your reception goes bad on you in the middle of a great HD movie!
HR20-100S 2 lines | Sharp Aquos LC-32DA5U HDMI | Onkyo TX-SR 604 (digital coax) | Polk Audio RC85i
HR20-700S 1 line | Sony KP-51WS510 HDMI-DVI | Panasonic SC-HT95 | Polk Audio RC85i | Networked
R15-500 connected to an old Sanyo (1 line)
Vista Home Premium | BUFFALO WLI-TX4-G54HP | Comcast 6Mbps/Motorola SB5100 modem

I don't think we'll see 100 HD channels added to the HD package.

I think part of the 100 new HD channels means a lot more local HD channels to areas that don't have them now.

Not this again.

No, it is 100 nationally available channels. Some will be part time (like baseball channels for games) and some will require something higher than the full normal package (like HBO or MLB EI) but they will all be NATIONAL channels.

Why do people still post this stuff?
