Greetings to the forum. I'm sure this has been covered here but I could not fiind any info so I will ask away. We have a cabin in the Sierras that has a Dish 500 twin LNB dish installed from the previous owners. What I would like to do is to sign up for Dish at my main house in the Bay Area - Hopper & 2 Joeys, then get an SD receiver such as a 322 for the cabin. I want to be able to watch TV up there without having a second account for the cabin. Since there is no cable or internet up there I am told a Hopper won't work and the dish 500 is only SD anyway so that's why looking at the 322. (I have also been told by locals that because of line-of-site issues we can't get HD?) CSR's have told me two differrent stories: 1) won't work, need second account; 2) get the second receiver and it can be activated on my existing account for $7/month or so "additional receiver" fee. I am sure this is done frequently but I would like some input from folks who have experience with this. Thanks for your input!
