    I just bought a new place and it is wired up for sattelite, Dish Network. I want to use a DirecTV setup, I know I need to point it at 111 deg or so but do I need to change the dish (18') and more importantly the LNB's?

    LNBs for sure, probably the dish too.

    These are pretty much available for free for most new DirecTV customers. Tell them you want the Para Todos spanish package and they'll give you an oval dish that will require only a 3rd LNB kit ($8) to get all the HD channels when you choose to upgrade.
