    Don't want to go through Directv, I'll buy it on my own. I have HD, 2 TV's , HR21/100 Receiver and H21 /100 receiver. I'm moving , not disconnecting service etc.....Need to keep the locals I have ;) If you know what I mean.

    Whats the latest and greatest?

    The current dish to support HD is the Slimline.

    Keeping locals may not be an option, as for almost all markets they are sent on spot beams that only cover a small geographic area. If you move more than roughly 100 miles, you will no longer receive them, no matter what you do.

    Trust me , I'm just moving one street over. I've had the same locals for years , online billing and I don't EVER change my address when I move.

    Why? Are there strings from DirecTV if you move across the street and tell them? Can you not do a self-move add just tell them your new address?

    If you just have those two mpeg4 receivers, find out if "your locals" are on 99/103 or if you need 119, then order a SWMLine 3 (no 119) or 5 (all sats). It will benefit you in the future, and will save you money on coax... One coax instead of two, to the dvr... splitters instead of cable runs all the way to the dish.

    Just make sure it comes with a power inserter, as your receiver doesnt power the SWM Lnb.

    "Moving" is not a suitable topic at DBStalk.com as it knowingly violates Terms of Service and likely local laws.
