Thanks for the information! Just a couple of quick follow-up questions.
Your note got just a little garbled at the end. The last line was
You will have almost all HD channels and you'll lost some of the 110.
Did you mean that I will not be able to get the stuff that's on spotbeam, but just the CONUS channels on 110?
I looked at http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/dish110_sid.html and I think I can live with that.
However, given the layout of where I am, I can really only have one dish -- and preferably the smaller one. That leaves me with a 120 CM (or maybe I can get away with a 180 CM dish) pointed at 110. That might mean I won't get everything -- but I'll get a lot more than the nothing I'm getting now.
If there was something I really needed to see, I assume I could repoint the one dish to nail one of the other sats. Would that work?
I have a line on some used antenna and LNB, but in case that falls through, does anyone have a suggested brand or vendor for these items? Is there some gear or gadget that would facilitate occasional, manual, repointing? (Strict budget here.)
Thanks in advance for more help!
PS -- Unrelated note. I need a molex-to SATA power cable for a SATA drive, and I haven't found a local store that sells them. Anyone know something, or is it mail-order time again?
