I have been a long time prowler around HTF. Thanks to the members of this forum, I recently took the plunge an aquired a KV-36XBR450 and LOVE IT. My problem, like so many others, is that I have ATT Cable and it is poo. Not only does it look bad on the new TV, but getting Cartoon Network is NOT EVEN AN OPTION for my area. Bad, bad, bad. I need my Powerpuff Girls. At any rate, I have been thinking about going with DirecTV. The football package was the deciding factor for this. My problem is that I have 5 TVs (I know. It is sick.). The XBR, my bedroom, kitchen, guest room and the basement ( for my daughters). I will get the DirecTV/HDTV unit for the XBR for HBO-HD. That means the elliptical dish. Can I put 3 dual LNBs on the elliptical dish? Will I need 4 additional boxes (at 6 bucks a month per)? Is there a better way to do this? Thanks for all the help in the past, and for your input in this issue. peace, rickster ------------------ "You can't always get what you want But if you try sometimes You just might find You get what you need"
