    Dish Network TV at tailgate questions

    I'm playing around with a spare dish trying to get it to work so I can use my receiver at a tailgate. Anyone here ever setup a Dish Network receiver at a tailgate and can give me tips on how the heck to get this thing to pull down a signal? Not having much luck at the moment. And yes I'm pointing it south in the same general area as the one on my house...

    Re: Dish Network TV at tailgate questions

    I set up Dish for almost every game. You mentioned you are playing around with a spare Dish. The newer receivers don't work with older LNBs(> 3 years old).

    Have you done the menu 6 1 1 and done check switch? If you have a mismatch it give you a communictation error I believe.

    Bet this is it because that is the dish I'm trying to use. My home setup has 2 dual receivers. Trying to use the Dish 322 which is the standard one without the DVR that is in the other room. Guessing I need to find a Dish 500 receiver huh?
