    hi, I found a vip612 receiver at the swapmeet for 15 bucks. Is it possible to convert it into FTA.

    What is pretty cool about it, is that its dual tuner, record one show while watching another channel.

    Thanks.

    It is a DISH Network only receiver and cannot be converted.

    If it is working and not attached to someones account or leased property belonging to DISH it will probably sell for more than $15. You can call DISH to find out the status of the receiver there is a R00 # on the back of the receiver that will identify it for DISH.
