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!!!

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.
