:confused: Just purchased a HR10-250 thru D*.
The CSR said that since I was in the LA area I needed to upgrade to the new 5LNB.
I have since learned that the 5LNB dish is for future MPEG4 use and the HR10-250 is MPEG2.
Will I have any problem with the HR10-250 if it is connected to the new 5LNB dish?

Thanks

No problems, but it is not needed for the HR10. You will, however, be prepared for the MPEG4 upgrades when they happen.

No. The 5 LNB dish picks up what the 3 LNB dish does, plus MPEG-4 satellites.
Thanks, both.

AJ,
I see you are in the LA area.
Do you currently watch the local channels in HD (MPEG4)?

No, not yet. It hasn't been offered to me by D* yet. If they would do a 5 LNB dish install and trade-out my Mitsubishi HD receiver for free I would probably go for it. I have no intention of giving up my HD Tivos until the new HD DVRs come out and the dust settles.

I have very good local OTA HD reception and really don't need the MPEG-4 stuff. I would like to do a comparison though.
