Hi,
My friend bought a house recently and the old owner left their 5 lnb dish on the side of the house. She has an older Samsung Tivo box that she loves and doesn't want to get rid of. It is the only receiver she has. Will it by itself work with the 5 lnb dish or does she have to go back to the triple lnb style?

Thanks in advance!!!

It will work fine, just choose the single LNB dish during setup.
