H20 with an old dish

We just bought a cabin and it already has an older 1 lnb dish mounted. If I bring my H20 up there will it work? Will I get any HD channels?

You will get a lot of SD off 101 but you need the 5LNB dish if you want to watch HD at the cabin.
Yes it will work. Just go through the satellite setup and set it for a single lnb dish. No you won't get any HD channels.
It should work, but being a single LNB it is probably pointed at 101. You will mostly get SD channels. The older dish won't be able to receive any Ka programming, and most (if not all) of the few MPEG2 HD channels are at 110 & 119.
That's what I expected, thanks all for the fast replies.
