    While cleaning out my garage I came across a new-in-the-box satellite dish. Hard to determine the age, but the box indicates the model number as:
    DS4120RE AXI

    Is this dish useless today?

    Thanks

    It can be used to get the core D* SD programming and also locals in a bunch of larger DMA's.

    No undamaged dish is useless; a parabola is a parabola is a parabola.

    A deeper question is what you'd want to use it for.

    Good question, FTA - The trash collector doesn't come again until Monday morning, so I think it can be used to weigh down the garbage can until then.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Did a google search and got this Amazon page:

    http://www.amazon.com/RCA-DS4120RE-DIRECTV-System/dp/B00004SSRA

    Best part? DirecTV (and Amazon.com) have been around a lot longer than they've been telling us:

    I have two of them. If you want, I'll send mine to you and you'll really be able to weigh down the garbage can.
