I currently have both systems - Dish Network with a DISH500 & two receivers and a DirecTV dish with a Sony reciever....

Currently I subscribe to DISH Network for the "family unit" and DirecTV for my sports packages....

Is it possible and how hard is it convert the DISH500 dish to recieve DirecTV signal?

Could I use both dishes to receive HDTV from DirecTV?

At this point I can commit to either system, but plan to move to HDTV very soon and it seems to me DirecTV might be the best option for me.....Any help or advice would be very much appreciated....

okay.....although somewhat technically proficient - that is moving just a tad fast for me :)

As far as the LNB switch on the DISH500 - Can I tell by the setup info or do I have to physically inspect the LNB? And will I see a number or some physical indator of what LNB is currently there?

Can I buy this SAT C kit?

I believe I understand the Multiswitch thing - 4 in and 4 out for getting four receivers and receiving HDTV broadcast?

The current setup is a Dual LNB Dish500 and a single LNB DirecTV if this makes a difference....

Thanks again for the help,
Dave
