    Has anyone heard if dish will ever be able to go to a wireless receiver?

    No way? As long as you're willing to put more electronics and power into the DISH there are ways.

    It would be easier to find a way to put the antenna into the receiver! The dish is already getting a wireless signal from the satellites!

    If you had any idea how your system works you probably wouldn't ask the question. The LNBF at the dish ampjifies the signal it is powered by the receiver, switches except for a few that are independently powered also rely on the receiver. Yes there are ways to circumvent cable to the receiver but that cable is such a simple solution.:)

    OK, I read it as the OP was asking about a wireless connection to his router with no extra hardware being needed.

    Sort of like when I see someone asking about a wireless BluRay player.

    Right, and this kind of thing is simple. Basically you need a dish receiver that converts the transport stream into IPTV packets and its done. AT&T via it's Uverse offering has been doing this with HDTV for years. There is no reason the exact same tech can't work for dish.

    Perhaps he is referring to a device similar to at&t UVerse's new wireless STB. You still need a wire to come into the house, however once a master receiver is hooked up it can transmit to "satellite" locations (not to be confused with the spacecraft that transmits our D*/E* programs to our homes).
