Maybe. Dish uses transponders at 110 and 119 for the majority of it's programming. DirecTV uses transonders at 110 and 119 for HD, foreign language and local programming. The problem is they use completely different methods to switch between satellite signals. DirecTV uses a 22Khz tone to signal the switch to get signals from a combined 110/119. Dish uses low baud rate data to signal it's switch to get signals on either 110 or 119. If you have an older model multi-sat dish you can modify it and add a Dishnetwork switch so it will work. If you have a newer multi-sat dish with a built-in DirecTV switch, then it will not work.
