    Upgrading from ancient Legacy system at vacation home. Old setup was 110/119 off the side of Starband dish and a dish 300 pointed at 61.5 with an old SW64 switch. Still have a Dish 500 mast available as well. Old 510 DRV. Location is Eastern WV (Washington, DC DMA).

    I am thinking of purchasing a Hopper and Joey and Duo node (2nd Hopper later). The question in around the dish. Seems like 1000.4 EA (61.5, 72.7, 77) is being phased out for the 1000.2 EA (61.5,72.7). Is that true? Looks like 77 is just used for some locals (not mine) and Dish Latino and some music. Would it be better to find a 1000.4 in case?

    This will all be self install due to distance and my preference.

    You can go with either 1000.4 or 1000.2 EA both will work. I would suggest 1000.2EA for a self install seeing you only need to find 2 satellites.
