I have a HR20 coming in tomorrow afternoon (fedex). I have the old 3lnb dish, currently a R10. Question is, do I HAVE to have the new dish, or will I continue to receive the programming I have, just no HD channels? I have to wait on install, but do not want to wait on installing the receiver.

Thanks for the help....you folks are awesome here!

You need the new dish for mpeg4 HD local channels only. I have an old 3lnb dish and HR20 works fine with it, getting mpeg2 HD channels as well as SD channels.

mpeg-2 HD channels are 70-99. mpeg-4 channels show up next to your local channels as extra local channels (2, 4, 5, 7 etc).
