Ok, I'm a newbie so bear with me.

I have a Dish 500 with legacy LNB. I can get all my programming, but not my locals. The tech support guy said I need a new receiver because it can't detect a switch. So...

1) On a one receiver setup, where does a switch go/do?

2) Would not having one affect me not getting locals?

I'd hate to buy a new receiver if I don't need one.....

Thanks!!!

1. Between the receiver and the dish itself.
2. Could be depending on the satellite your locals come off.

The switch changes the satellite feed that the receiver is currently on.

If your legacy LNB is a Twin, you already have a switch. It's part of the assembly with the *2* LNBs for 119 and 110.

You haven't said what locals you are trying to get. If you're talking about a distant or significantly viewed market, you need to glance over the giant threads discussing the court injunction against Dish offering those to anyone.
