Help with install question
Posted 13 August 2008 - 07:52 AM
Have Directv at home. At cabin have an older Dish Network sat dish that was removed by previous owner.
Would like to bring a receiver from home to cabin, hook up DN Dish and try to get my directv. Don't need HD (no HD TV at cabin) but woud like ESPN, Sunday ticket if possible, etc.
I don't know any of the specs on the older dish. Is there anyway this will work, or should I just have a Directv dish installed?
Trying to minimize costs obviously.
Anyone know of any threads (have links) that discuss this?

Buy a used 18" round dish on ebay.
Was going to do that, but only if this won't work. Leave for cabin tomorrow night, so Ebay won't work for this weekend's test.
