Basic international package question

Is there a way to get the $10 basic international without adding a language package at additional cost? My interest is for channel 9797 English broadcast. Am I also correct in assuming I will need to change out my 1000.2 for a 1000+ dish?

Difference in these pictures I'm seeing ???

I've noticed at a few different friends houses that have cable, I know one has a smart tv and the other a flat screen but I'm unsure what kind exactly. I did notice that with a dvd on the flat screen it appeared to have a different type of picture. Not sure if it was high def, can't remember but I...

Does ethernet cable over ride internal devic on the hopper

Since I think my download problem is a faulty internal device on the Hopper, I went to hell and back to set things up to where I could use an ethernet cable. So now that I have the cable in place, will that automatically override the internal device in the Hopper, or do I need to do something in...

How does the Hopper connect to the internet?

Again, this is in regards to my downloads failing post. The 722 needed an external device to connect to the internet. Does the Hopper do it internally? Since I think my problem is a faulty device, can I get an external one to by pass the internal one, if there is one, rather than replacing the...
