Thinking About Switching to Dish but Have Questions?

I've been with Direct TV for 16 years and am think about switching to Dish for HD and the Hopper.

1st, where can I find specific hardware prices - dvr fees, Joey fees, etc?

2nd, where can I find how many Joeys come with a Hopper?

3rd, when your 1 year promo ends, can you sign up for another promo or do you really have to pay the full normal price? I am considering America's Top 250+ for a promo price of $39.99 for 12 months and 69.99 after the promo. Would I really have to pay the $69.99 or could I switch to another promo pack and sign a new agreement? Verizon offer these types of deals or so they tell me.

4th, Are all HD channels also simulcast on SD channels for recording by VCR or DVD recorders?

5th, Is Dish's equipment - DVRs, etc. reliable? My Sony Tivo is over 10 years old and works just like it did day 1.

6th, why are promo lengths different over the phone vs. on line? Seems like the folks on the telephone will haggle with me to try to sign me up??? I don't want to sign up with these folks and get billed something different.


Thanks...
