    Our landlord left Dish Network Receivers and a Multi-LNB dish when they moved.

    Curious that if we hooked an off-the-shelf FTA receiver to the feedline if we would get anything.

    Last time I checked an unactivated receiver several years ago, I could also get NASA TV and AngelOne. Maybe that's changed.

    Those got scrambled earlier this year sadly :(

    Cheap Charlie even scrambled the test cards that say "you're on 61.5, 129 etc"
