    I upgraded to a DISH 500 I called to local folks who are
    coming to set it up. I told them that I wanted him to set
    my OLD Dish to 61.5 for HDTV. He told me that I would also
    need a SW64. He gave me aprice of 120 for SW64 and total
    price of 194 to wire it all up, set OLD Dish.
    Is good price.

    The SW64 runs about $135 from dishdepot.com, and it will handle 1-4 receivers. If you only have two receivers, you should be able to drive them both with the addition of two SW21 switches, which run $20 bucks apiece.
    Installs run around $100, and should include cable and labor, but not switches.
    I think you are getting a fair price, but the SW64 may be overkill.
    I've had my 18-inch dish pointed to 61.5 essentially free-standing in the back yard (mounted to a large piece of pressboard). I just arranged to have the dish hard-mounted to my 2-story roof. I have the switches and dishes, and it is costing me $100.

    I have 2 receivers and have 6 sets ONLY MY 61" is HD others are not.
    I have 2 coax behind each TV depending on who's watching
    on what receivers they are quick change.
    When I install my OTA what hooks to what.
    I know I sound like a dummy, HMmmm I am a dummy on HDTV stuff but I am learning.
