man, 119 and 110 are the strongest Dish birds up there! you can afford to lose quite of bit of "signal" strength and not notice a thing.mlaviolette said:I have a DishPro 500 dish with 625 and 311 receivers. I was thinking of getting HD and replacing the 500 with a 1000.2 and a 211K receiver to get 110/119/129, but I don't want to degrade the 110/119 signal strengths. So far my current setup has been very stable and I don't want to have dropouts.
Assuming I get a good installer, will the 110/119 signal strengths be affected when I swap the dishes?
what should be done with a 1000.2 dish is optimize it for the weak 129. if that is done, 119 and 110 come along just fine.
a better bet would be to leave the 500 Dish, put a Dish Pro Plus LNB on it, and set up another 500 dish pointed at 129 by itself. This is a much more reliable setup.
