I was getting ready to buy a Dish setup model 6023 for the house we are buying, but last night the seller informed me that he is leaving his DirectTV dish and a tuner to me. The question is can I use any of the DirectTV equipment with Dish network.
Originally posted by rudolpht: You can certainly reuse the dish to get 61.5 or 148. You'll still need a Dish 500 for the rest of the cahnnels. Depending on wire quality and correct room. Some of that may be done too.
Will it be cheaper/wiser to get the 6023 package and just replace what the current owner has now? I still have to check if he has RG59 or RG6 wiring.
It will be easiest to get a package ith just the Dish 6000 and a TWIN LNB. After reaiming existing antenna to 61.5 or 148 and installing Dish 500, you'll just need to combine signals with a SW21.
Call Mark at DishDepot and he'll give you what you need at a good price. Multiple other good vendors as well, but having someone walk you through configuration is a big helper (and good for confidence, too).
