I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this? I just bought a Hitachi 53" HDTV, and I want to get HDTV channels. I know you have to have the DISH 6000 box and a extra dish. My mother had DISH Network and got rid of it over a year ago, the dish is still in her yard with all the cables hooked to it. My question is, can I take the dish from her yard to use for my HDTV setup? They tell me to get the 61.5 satt, I need another dish, can I swipe hers since they never picked it up? Seems like a good idea to me, so I don't have to buy another one. Also, besides the extra dish and the 6000 box, what else do I need? Some kinda switch or something? How does this work? How do you switch channels? do you have an extra remote? Or does the same remote recognize what you are doing? I am new, and want HDTV, but I don't want a bunch of hassles with "this, that, and the other thing"! If I can use her Dish, how much will this cost? I know I have a lot of questions, but all reply's are GREATLY APPRECIATED!
