Default HDTV on Direct TV

Direct TV has announced a new High-Definition programming package.

I get HDNet now and it is awesome.

They called me Friday about the new package........I said YES, and my new 3rd 110 degree LNB is sitting on my desk right now that I got via FedEX today. I'm going with the "professional" install.........I don't want to crawl up on the friggin roof!

The HD Discovery channel should be good too.

I have the 3-LNB Dish and a Samsung HDTV Receiver.

I loved watching NHL Hockey in High-Definition on HDNet.

I have the oval 3 LNB dish, but didn't have the 3rd LNB. Did you already have that? I have the RCA DCD100 receiver.

They only sell the three LNB dish now. I guess they figure everyone is going to need it. Hey Nort take it from me. I used to sell a LOT of those RCA's. It is time to upgrade to the Sony box or the Zenith unit. Take your pick they are both the same (made by Zenith) but the Zenith is 100 bucks cheaper (should be around 550.00 bucks. They picture quality BLOWS the RCA away and the channel changing is faster. You also no longer have to tell it to look at your off air or sat unit. Just pick the channel and you are there

I already have HD-Net and HBO on HD. I use the two LNB oval dish with the two outer slots with LNB's

Is the third the one in the center? Will this new LNB be the one that goes to my HD receiver?

Just curious if I have to run more wires.

No you do not have to run any new wires. They have a new multi switch that will allow it to work for ya.

I recommend that if you are way up in the northern area like you are the new Terk dish will probably get a little stronger reception for you on all three LNB's.

The actually combine the HD LNB, and the new 110 degree LNB together. They are both for HD so they combine them into the same 4x4 switch. No switch change.
