A friend is getting Dish Network and is wondering "what in the world do you do with the big huge dish in his yard? Any ideas?

Get the 4Dtv receiver for his big dish and it will blow away anything that is on the Dish Network, picture quality and programming choices at lower costs......

so if he has an analog only receiver, then he doesn't know what he is missing without the 4Dtv....the DSR-905 sidecar is about $169....check it out!

Agreed. It's a mistake to believe that Dish or DirecTV provide a better picture quality than the big dish.


Anyone else: Can you receive HDTV stations with a big C-band/Ku-band dish?

Yes you can get HD on the BUD's. You would need a HDD-200 from GI/Motorola, and hook it up to your 4DTV.:cool:

AFAIK, the 4DTV sidecar isn't a receiver. It's an add on that you can add to your existing analog receiver to receive 4DTV digital channels. And of course, info is available from satellite (BUD) dealers or www.4dtv.com.
