E* receivers are a standard MPEG-2 receiver and are able to pick up anything that transmitts the MPEG-2 standard that has an SR of 20000, channel numbers and PIDs recognizable to the receiver.

John is correct it all has to to with the LNBF. It has long been known that E* receivers can receive a standard MPEG-2 signal from any of the satellite bands provided the signal transmits the same SR and PIDs that dish uses.

D* doesn't transmit a standard MPEG-2 signal. Their signal is a modified form of MPEG-2 that is not compatable with E* receivers. If D* receivers are chosen all E* receivers will have to be replaced. A simple program upgrade won't do it.

BTW the Phily locals are on KU-Band not C-Band. DBS is also in the KU-Band. The KU-Band TP on T7 that the Phily locals are on uses the same MPEG-2 standard that is used on all the E* DBS sats. The standard is exactly the same only the operating frequency of the localtion of the additional Phily locals has changed.
