I just moved to Wilmington North Carolina from Arizona and plan to upgrade from my old Dish 500 standard definition system to HD. My question is: must I use the Eastern Arc 1000.4 dish, or can I use a 1000.2 dish and point at 110/119/129 locations? :confused:

If you stay with standard definition, WA (110, 119) will do. If you upgrade to HD, then EA with just 61.5, 72 would be needed as the HD locals for Wilmington NC are on 61.5.

From what I read in other threads I will not be able to use my 322 SD receiver on the EA, is that correct?
Do you want SD or HD the 322 is SD. You can lease a 222 if you want a dual tuner HD non DVR receiver.
1000.2EA will get you 61.5 and 72.7 which should be all you programming.
1000.2 WA will get 110/119 & 129 but in Wilmington you may have problems seeing 129. The look angle will be quite low.
