My current configuration:

2 PVR-501 receivers
1 Dish 300 with Dual LNB pointed at 61.5 (SkyAngel)
1 Dish 500 with Dual Twin LNB pointed at 110 and 119
2 SW-21 switches (combining Dish 300 and Dish 500 to each receiver)

Equipment on hand, but not yet in use or installed:

DPP-44 Switch
Superdish 121 (my locals are on 121 last time I checked, Rockford, IL.)
Your current configuration is almost identical to the one I had just a couple of years ago.

You'll need DishPro LNB's on both the Superdish and the Dish500 (in order to use the DPP44 switch). I'd keep the Dish500 and point it to 61.5 to get a better signal for SkyAngel and HDTV. You'll dump the SW21 switches, any current LNB's you are using and the Dish300 dish.

The only thing this might not do for you is if your HD regional sports network is at 129 (assuming the HD RSN's are ever actually made available :rolleyes:). If your HD RSN ends up at 61.5, you'd be set with the info above. Otherwise, you'd probably want to keep the Dish300 at 61.5 for Skyangel and then use the Dish500 at 129 for all your HD (including the RSN-HD). That may be too many orbital slots for a DPP44 - I'm not sure - someone else can chime in about that.

Clear as mud? :D
