9/4     Anybody have Dish Networks with Local Channels?  Their web site
        claims that you need the 500 series receiver in order to recv local
        channels.  I'm wondering if that's a marketing ploy.  Anybody tried
        hooking up a 300 series receiver and see if it works?  One has to
        pay more per month to use the 500 series.  Thanks.
        \_ i got a free 2nd Dish 500 from them for getting local channels
           have to point it in a different angle
        \_ What you need is a Dish 500 *antenna*, not a particular receiver.
        \_ The locals show up as high numbered channels (the receiver then maps
           them to the local channel number).  My understanding was that you
           needed the 500 series system to get the high channels.  But I don't
           know if both receiver and antenna are necessary.
           \_ You just need the Dish 500 antenna.  The 500 series receivers
              are just their digital video recording products.  Local channels
              have been available for longer than the 500 series receivers...
