I'm switching from Directv to Dish and I have a couple questions.

1) Has anyone else that has made the switch been able to tell the difference in HD channels looking better? (I have a Sony 50" SXRD)

2) The email confirmation from Dish says they will be using a Dish 500. Don't I need a Dish 1000 to be able to get all 3 sats? (email copied/pasted below)

Thanks for any help!

Congratulations!

You will need either a D1000 or 2 dishes either 2 500's or 1 500 & 1 300.

You likely will need something like the SuperDish for all three on one satellite dish. Otherwise you could use 1 Dish 500 and 1 Dish 300, or 2 Dish 500... all being DishPro models of course.

Stupid dish is obsolete. Pulled mine down over the weekend. ;)

Dish 1000 is the most common 3 orbital dish now.

Waht part of the country are we talking about?
