I wonder why they suggested the Phase III and a round 18" dish initially. Do you know what satellite your local stations come on, maybe it is 72.5 in which case you will need the second dish regardless of whether you have the Phase III or AT9.

If that is the case, you will also need a 6 port multiswitch (the WB68 will support this).

At this point in time though, you don't NEED the AT9. If your local stations are not available in HD from DirecTV, the AT9 offers you nothing over the Phase III except it is bigger and uglier. If/when you get locals in HD, OR DirecTV starts converting existing MPEG2 HD feeds over to MPEG4, then you will need the AT9. It's a toss up as to whether you get it now anticipating a future requirement.
