I scored some free stuff off of freecycle yesterday. I got:

1x Phase III dish, just like brand new, with LNB :D
1x Zinwell 6x8 :)
1x D11 receiver
2x RC64 remotes

Got to messin' with the D11 just now. It makes a funny rattle noise and also it is emitting a weird odor.

Oh wait I figured it out, it's full of roaches and roach... uh... leavings. :barf:

I wrapped it up in saran wrap it smelled so bad. Maybe it was the dogs they had in the house.

Should I even bother to mess with it? It would work in the garage...

Activate it and use it until it croaks?

That was really generous of them to give me all that stuff, but don't you think you should warn a guy before he takes it out to the truck and dumps little black dots all over his lap? :eek2:

The only part I'd hang onto is the multiswitch.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.
