Hello once again everyone.


While I not-so patiently wait to buy just the right HDTV tuner, I was wondering if my RCA DRD480RE receiver should be able to pick up the 119 Sat. I realize that the receiver is not a HDTV tuner, but it is supposed to be compatible with the oval dish which I currently am using. I have the settings set on the DRD480 as using a oval dish and have tried for a while to pick up the signal of the 119 Sat. with no success. After trying for a while I got to thinking that I may need the HDTV tuner.


Have I just been wasting my time looking for a signal? Do I need the HDTV tuner to get the signal for the 119 sat?


Thanks in advance.


Mike

You can pick up 119 with the 480 SD receiver. Make sure you go in the setting and change the dish to an Oval dish. Keep trying....

If you have ch 400, you are receiving 119.

OK. Thanks guys. I will keep looking for the signal. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't looking for a signal that my receiver would never find.


No channel 400. Just a message saying searching for signal. I will try again over the weekend. Reading some of the postings in the forum it seems that I will really need to be patient while trying to find the signal.


I don't think I can wait any longer. I might as well go buy the RCA DTC 100. I have been hearing good things about it.


Thanks.
