    Hello everyone,

    I have a dilemma with Directv.

    My current setting that I have is a World Direct Satellite, 2 Standard Receivers, and 1 Standard DVR. The place I live the management wants only 1 satellite.

    I called to see if I could upgrade to HD. Here's what happened...

    2 DTV reps said I needed to add the Slimline Dish with the World Dish.

    1 rep told me that I needed to to replace the World Dish with a Slimline Dish.

    1 rep told me that I could keep my World Dish and they would install a little box with it.

    My question is "Who is right?" :nono::eek2:

    I need your help... thank you guys.

    Wondering if the little box he mentioned was a sidecar. I think the main question would be do you want to keep International programming?

    You need 2 Dishes if you want international.

    Directv Slimline 5 is good only for Jade world and Spanish Channels.
