Your 512 will go black within a month indicating no subscription, The 512 dosen't have an ATSC tuner so it caqn't get OTA.

hmmm I had it set up but had to move things around. I had both tv's on dish and both received Digital reception from one OTA cable from the roof. I just don't remember how it was done.

ladyharley, here would be your instructions.

Connect a RG-6 coax cable from the "satellite" in port on back of the 512 and run it to the "other TV" you want to use. Connect the RG-6 coax to the TV "in" port connector. If you have a set of RCA-type (Red-White-Yellow) cables. Connect the Video "yellow" cable to the TV-1 "output" on the 512 receiver. Connect the other Yellow RCA to the TV's RCA 'Video Input" on the TV. Connect the other RCA-type (Red and White) cables..."audio inputs" from the 512 TV-1 "output" to the TV audio imput ports.

To get the "locals OTA stations, you must connect a RG-6 coax cable from the roof antenna to the TV CH 3-4 port.

If you have "still" the Dish 512 receiver, all the above is listed on pages 23-27
