Integrated LNB/switch

This is a prototype integrated LNB for the Dish 500+/1000+, similar to the Dish 1000.2/1000.4, shown at Team Summit 2009.  The DishPro Plus head has the dual-band LNB for 118.75/119, a 110 LNB, a DPP switch with outputs for 3 dual-tuner receivers, and an LNB input.  The 129 slot is still from a separate DP Dual or Single.

The integrated head became available in February 2011.
