Typically installations have a single Dish 1000 which for Oregon would pickup 3 satellites. 110,119 and 129. In my case I already had two dishes on the house so there is a Dish 500 picking up 110 and 119 and a second dish picking up 129.

then what are you trying to do?
I was looking into getting dish. I read in another post that one guy who just got dish has 2 dish's installed. He said the installer only initially came out with one dish and then had to go back and get another.

So I was just curious if it actually need 2 seperate dishes.

In my area they have to put at least 2 dishes if locals are part of the package. To get lil in this area we have to have a dish pointed at 148. I have 3 61.5, 110/119, & 148. For a D 1000 it takes 2 110/119/128 & 148. So 2 is not unusual depending on the area that you live.

The 118 channel isn't of much use on the west coast. It carries HD channels for Detroit, Indianalpolis, Raleigh and St Louis as well as some international stuff. I think I'll just keep my two dishes. The installer might want to put that larger Dish 1000 in a place that has very low WAF. (Wife Acceptance Factor)
