    HI.
    I'm a current dish customer. I have a Tosh TN61X81 4:3 HD ready set. I'm moving to a new home and there I'd like to get AT100, Some Indian programming and the HDTV feed.
    I currently have a Dish 500, 4722 rec. and a 2800 rec.
    What other equipmet do I need?
    AFAIK, I need a Dish 6000 rec. and another dish to point to 61.5. What switches do I need to get? I'll have only 2 recievers in the house.
    Thanks for the help.

    If your Dish500 has a Twin LNB, then you need the SW21 switch. If it has two dual LNB's, then you need the SW64. There used to be a SW42 that would work great but they are no longer produced.
