So basically the 500+ and 1000+ are the same dish except the 1000+ has the added 129?
Correct. The bracket for 129 should be included in the box with the 500+ LNB. You will need to acquire a DP Single or DP Dual LNB to mount on the bracket though. You will just use a short (6-8" piece of cable to connect the Single LNB into to the Input (Port #4) on the 500+ LNB. Then just run a single line from one of the LNB outputs (#1-3) to your receiver. 4 birds on one cable.
