    You'll need a second dish (round with dual output LNB) to receive the 61.5 sat. And a 6x8 multiswitch to integrate that sat with the others. Go here http://emantechnology.com/lookangle.asp and enter your zipcode and select the 61.5 sat from the list. This will give you the alignment parameters for that dish. Connect the four outputs from the PH 111 to the 6x8 switch and the outputs from the 61.5 to the flexport inouts on the switch.

    Refresh my memory, what DirecTV channels are on 61.5?

    You will need to call Directv and get the new 5LNB dish that also points to the new HD channels. Good luck. It covers all SD and HD channels.

    The OP asked about the 61.5 satellite. Not the new HD DirecTV sats at 99 and 103.

    Isn't 61.5 a Dish Network bird?

    Will an SD DirecTivo receiver even USE a satellite at that point?

    I thought the receiver would only work with a satellite that sends a "recognize me" signal

    It seems the OP needs to supply a bit more info. :)

    And, maharg18 is right as the 61.5 is a Dish Net sat.

    Maybe he means the 72.5 for locals.

    Thank you guys!

    Sorry guys, I did not explain what I need. I can setup only one dish, as i am allowed to set up more then one, due to condo rules. I have phase lll 18x20 with triple LNB (101, 110 and 119), each output is identical.

    So, the BIG question is what should I do, I need to get 61.5W
    1) get a new dish
    2) get a new LNB
    3) use some kind of switch

    Please help.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is no one dish solution to also get the 61.5 satellite. And if there were, it would probably be quite large. :) Larger than what the condio rules might allow.

    Exactly why do you need the 61.5 dish?

    Thank you for your reply Jim

    I need the 61.5 for the B4U music and other forgien channels.

    Please tell me if I can use just one dish for 61.5W only, or do I have to use 2 dishes to get 61.5W.
    If one dish is good enough then would I need to buy a specific dish or can I modify the exsiting one.
    Thanks!
