Will H23-600 receiver work with the 18 inch round dish?

    Going tailgating this weekend and and I'm wondering if we need a different receiver. The dish is about 5 years old and it has 2 coax cables coming out of it.

    My friend got the receiver from his dad, and said that they have a standard definition dish on his dad's house, so I imagine it will work...I just want to be sure before we start setting up.

    you would just need to go into the repeat satellite setup portion of the satellite menu and change it to the correct dish, but it should work

    Your friend got the receiver from his dad - is it still active on his dad's account? If not, I doubt you'll be able to activate it. If it is, then it should be easy, as noted above just go back through satellite setup and make sure "multiswitch" and 18" round are what you select. You may need to go into setup and display preferences and make sure it is set to display SD dupicates or hide HD channels (but not to hide SD duplicates).

    When an HD receiver is set with a round dish (in the receiver's settings) it will not load the HD channels on the guide.
