I have a multi-satellite dtvp3 dish in the garage. Is there anyway I can set this up to get HD channels (also NFL) while I am camping? I assume the answer is no but thought I would ask.

I also have a spare 5 lnb that was taken off my slimline dish - any way to use this on the multi satellite? (18x20)

Just trying to see if I can use any of the equipment I already have to watch HD channels while camping.

Yes, you can modify the phase 3 mount to take the SL5, but aiming it is a pain, and your signal levels will be quite low. There is a long running thread here on the methods used, and success reported. Cant recall the thread title though.

I found that link last night. I guess I have some experimenting to do!
