    I don't know if this is true or not, But I heard this sells associate at Circuit City say that Directv was going to do away with the 18" dish very soon making it obsolete? I still have a 18" dish and prefer it over the oval dish

    Probably has something to do with making it more convenient for people to begin using their slow and latent 'broadband' service, which requires the oval dish (I think).

    Has nothin to do with internet.The new oval will pick up 110 and 119 which has a lot of locals and HD.

    In addition to the two new slots where Spaceway 1 and 2 are going, it will be a 5 LNB dish.
