You will have a lot of trouble getting 129 in Phily (the entire Northeast is not a good area for 129) also the HD locals are on 61.5 only.

how's the hd channels on 61.5 compared 2 the 129, n can i get 61.5 on the dish 1000.2? thnx
The HD channels would have the same picture quality on both but 61.5 does have a stronger signal strength but you need a separate dish to get 61.5. 129 is not viewable in Phily, you need to go with 61.5. Your setup needs to be a Dish 500 for 119 and 110 and a separate dish for 61.5.

i have 110, n 119 hooked up 2 a dish 500. can i pull 61.5 with a dish 1000.2 or a dtv circular 18" or will i need a different dish al2gether? thank u !
61.5 is not that hard to point, use of a dtv dish with a modifacation should work. Most just use another Dish 500 dish using only one lnb and setting the skew to 90. Using a Dish 1000 is just overkill.

Use the Dish 1000 to get 110 and 119 and use the smaller dish to get 61.5.

Back when Dish was putting "minor" local channels on a different satellite slot, Philadelphia's extra channels came from 129°.
At one time Phily's locals were spread accros 110 and 61.5, they were not on 129.

Try to point 61.5 with a direct run to the receiver, when you have it fine tuned then hook it into the Dish 1000. Run a check swith with neither dish connected before trying to point to 61.5 and run check switch again after you have it hooked up to the Dish 1000. The first check switch will clear the matrix on the receiver and make it easier to point the dish, the second makes sure entire system is hooked up correctly. Don't be concerned if the second switch test does not give the complete system the first time you run it. For some reason it may miss something and a repeated check switch may be required but once the entire system shows you should be all set.
