    I have the HR10-250. Tomorrow, we are having a huge Super Bowl party at a friends house. He is a Dish subscriber and does not receive ABCHD (we have no local ABC affiliate). I do have ABCHD via D*. I am taking my receiver over tomorrow. A buddy has an old dual lnb on a portable stand we use for tailgating that we will use to get the signal. Does anyone know if we can receive ABCHD with the dual lnb dish, and if so, which satellite is it on? If I have to, I'll drag my dish down from the roof, but the portable dish is a better solution.

    Thanks

    Nope...

    ABC-E-HD and ABC-W-HD are on the 119 SAT.

    Is it not possible to point the regular dish at the 119 satellite only??

    Not the dual LNB, you need the triple LNB to access 119. I think it also had to do with the LNB itself.

    Yes, I have a brand new 60"sxrd wanting to show the game. But the site is an yearly celebration that never changes. Oh well.
