I am currently a E* sub but am seriously considering changing to D* because I am tired of the whole DishPlayer thing. I am looking to buy a couple of DirecTivo's and one HD receiver. The DirecTivo's don't necessarily need to be Series 2 but if it is close I might go that way. Who is running a good deal right now?

I currently have a Dish 500 (119 and 110) and a second dish that I can look at 101 with, all have dual LNBF's. Can I use these or do I need to buy one the three slot dishes (I think I know this because the 110 LNBF on D* is not a real LNBF is it?)

Also, what kind of switching does D* use. Do they have a stacked system available? I only have 2 coax lines running to my HT setup and Would like to use the HD receiver and both tuners on the DirecTivo.
