probably not. you get 101, 110 and 119 and the new dish only needs to see 2 degrees further for 99

You should be good if you are getting great signals with your old dish.
Just make sure with your new dish you get 2 monopolesincluded with your roof install.
They are very important for wind load and make sure that all sats are at least 90+ on 99c,101,103c,110 and 119.
99s and 103s are spot beams and will have varying readings.
All this is important .be sure you check yourselfBefore the installer activates any new receivers.:D

Do all that, but be nice about it. Being rude will get you nowhere with a tech. :D

Bonjour , Ca Va,

Hello everyone at DBSTALK! this is my first post, I've been a coming to the DirectTv Forums as a non-member and I must say, wonderful moderators .

I hope that my question is not subjective,


I 'm live in Arizona, Northern Arizona, I live at a mile high altitude and no obstructions but mountains.

Is there anyway for me to receive Bangor Maine, Programing, (Locals)


I have a hd dvr with b band converters


I just really want to get as close to Canada as I can for Sports, Hockey (Le Canadians de Montreal)


You guys are great.
