Couple a quick questions...

1. What is this AT9 dish? Is it the regular Oval dish I'm using with my HD/Tivo setup or some new dish needed to get the MPEG4 stuff?
2. Do you need the AT9 dish to use DTV's new HD/DVR box?
3. With my current HD/Tivo box am I missing any channels without the new gear?
4. If the AT9 dish is new, will it work with the Tivo box?

ok... that was more than a couple. Thanks!

1. The AT9 dish has 5 LNBs and receives Ka band satellites at 99 and 103 degrees (MPEG4) in addition to the others.
2. No, but you won't receive the MPEG4 stuff without it (or the new slimline dish).
3. Currently you may be missing HD locals and RSNs. Next year additional MPEG4 national HD channels will be added which you won't receive with that box.
4. See answer #2.
