Will a Turbo HD antenna work with a 322 receiver?
It is compatible with the 322 but you will only be using 2 satellites instead of 3 with VIP receivers (HD). Thanks.
Depends if it is a 1000.2 dish that says turbo hd or a 1000.4. 1000.2 will work, 1000.4 will not
That statement isn't true anymore as there are EA and WA versions of both the 1000.2 and 1000.4. As long as the Dish is aimed at the WA, the 322 will work fine. Easiest way is to just hook it up and see - make sure to press Menu-6-1-1 and run a check switch test. If you end up with 119, 110 and 129 you're set. If it shows 61.5, 72.7 or 77 you'll only get a handful of channels if any.
What is exactly the problem with 1k4 and 322 ?
True. I guess I should have stated eastern arc vs. western arc. Brain fart on my part.
Well, caveat, 1k4 EA, the 322 will only be able to see what is sent in mpeg2 on those satellites.
Previous statement is true. A .4 dish on the 61.5 72.7 77 orbitals will not work with most SD equipment due to it not being MPEG4 comp.
Then that should be stated clearly: a dish or a receiver.
