    I currently have a dual LNB dish mounted on the edge of my roof. the roof is 30 ft. up (I live in a 1st floor condo). I have two cables running into the back of my DTivo unit. I realize the 5 LNB is a bigger dish. Should there be any concern about mounting one on my roof near where my other dish currently is? I would like to be able to run the same cables since they are already hidden in my condo. I called Dtv and they didn't seem to think it was a problem, but I am not sure I spoke to a real knowledgeable tech support person.
    I'm just trying to decide nowwhether to wait for the new Hd-DVR, or just get a high def. receiver with locals. Thanks for any input on this.

    Tinley...
    In generall... If you have the line of sight, and the room (aka, the dish is not installed in a very tight position)...

    You should be able to install the 5LNB... It is bigger, but not "that" much bigger.
