If I just have a dish pointed on 101 can I still see the widescreen games in widescreen? I have a basic Directv system w/ an old receiver and a dish on 101. I only subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket. I'm guessing I would probably need at least an HD receiver even if I'm not using it for HD (I do have an HD TV).
