can Super Dish works for VOOM?

12-21-2005, 10:18 AM
i try to get VOOM (i already have American top 60 + movie + HD package), the CS told me i have to have additional dish to receive VOOM

since i'm also considering international program which have to use Super Dish. before i always thought super can receive everything including VOOM, then i can have just one dish. but CS told me even i have a super dish, i still have to install 2nd dish specially for VOOM

is that true, or he just want me to buy 2nd one?

anyone has this experience?

Thats true what the csr told you.The SUPERDISH only receives satellite feeds from the 105,110,119 slots.To get most all of the international programing you will need to get another dish pointed at 61.5.You will be able to get Hd and VOOM on the 61.5 dish.Im not sure however what dish is planning to do with the Hd programing on the 61.5 dish.Some say that dish (MAY) move the Hd programing to the NEW DISH 1000 DISH.This dish receives the 110,119 and the new
129 satellite.The 129 satellite receives Voom channels now and they plan to add more channels to this satellite next year.

If you have a Superdish for internationals, that picks up 110, 119, and 121. To get the Voom channels you would need another dish pointed at 61.5 or 129.

So yes you need another dish.

P.S. there have been people who modified a Superdish to get 129 by adding another LNB on. This is not something most people would be able to do easy.

I currently have my 811 hooked up the the dish 500 at 110-119. I have an unused dish with single LNB I could use laying around. Could I point it at 129 and get the voom channels too? If so, how would I hook the additional dish to my 811?

You would need a switch. What switch depends on what LNB's you have on your dish500
