Oh yea, I meant to ask....does anybody know if the DW7000 is really any better than the DW6000?

ON another note, when I bought my setup two years ago it was with it's Hughesnet. I'm not sure I'm pleased with the service...anybody else have any troubles with the Hughesnet service dept?

For dish pointing, I suggest you drop down to;action=display;num=11627....

When switching from the DW6000 to the DW7000, the net gain is a marginally more survivable TX in inclement weather. So basically it's a DW6000 with adapting coding on the inroute (customer transmit). The HN7000S is a DW7000 with the DVB-S2 capability enabled. S2 enhances some bad weather survivability on the outroute. Only problem is, Hughes is only just now starting to phase in DVB-S2 on a transponder by transponder basis. Whether or not you'll realize the benefits immediately depends completely upon satellite/transponder assignment.
