You will definitely need at least an NTSC tuner in the recorder - so the EH58 is out. That means the H2160A would be your best choice....
He would need an NTSC tuner to use the satellite tuner through RF, wouldn't he (since the tuner only has a modulated, channel 3/4 RF output)? And the EH58 only has a PAL/SECAM tuner, right?

If your receiver does not have composite or S-Video output connections, then I guess you are stuck with not using this machine, getting an RF to composite converter, or getting a satellite receiver that is not electronically ancient technology.
No converter is necessary
thank you Rammitinski & Church AV Guy
i will try to summarize what i understood from your excellent posts.
Dish 111 receiver
a) Dish 111 has only 1 output , RF-Output CH3 or CH4
b) RF-Output is NTSC .
c) EH-58 doesn't have native NTSC tuner (line-in)
d) DISH 111 RF-Out , cannot be connected to , EH-58 , directly
e) a RF to composite-converter is required, to connect
f) RF to composite -converter is not same as NTSC/PAL converter
Magnavox 2160 (A)
g) Dish 111 RF-Out , can be directly connected , to Magnavox 2160(A)
h) Magnavox has inbuilt NTSC tuner
1) DISH 111 receiver, Magnavox 2160
2) Dish 111 receiver, RF to composite converter, DMR EH-58
3) newer DISH (322)????, DMR EH-58
