OK . . . how about this . . . I have a 1.2meter (Ku band I think) dish lying around. Could I use that to get Echostar's 61.5 or 148 satellite? I sure wouldn't have to worry about rain fade during my favorite HDTV movie if that works. ;-)

My situation: Dish500 + receiver 6000 + 8VSB. I Need a new dish for 61.5 to get HD. Now I got a oval DirecTV dish and DirecTV Dual LNBs.


Can I use this dish for dish network? Are there any differences for aiming the dish because it's oval? Should I expect stronger signal because it's a little bigger than 18"?


Thanks for helping!

No problem! Go for it. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif Yes, you might get a slightly stronger signal.
