    • Multi-dish
    or
    • A second dish with this one used excusively to "see" the 119 sat





    I don't think anything's on the 110 sat that I'll need to pick up (it's all HD(I don't have an HD set and won't for a long time) and foreigh language channels, right? Also will I need anything besides the dish, the mounting equipment and a multi-switch? In other words will I have to upgrade my receiver too, if so where's a good place to upgrade(I'd love to have DirecTV interactive)I like my current Sony receiver, I find the guide and all the features to be easier to use than the Hughes or RCA models.


    other suggestions are welcome [​IMG]

    I'm wanting the locals,(not on yet but the're coming. I really don't have any interest in Tivo, anyhow which method is better when it comes to minimizing rain fade on the 119 slot? I'm guessing 2 dishes.
