Can I use 3Lnb Dish for both DTV & DishNet?

Just wondering if it was possible to hookup Directv's 3Lnb Dish for Directv HD and also use it for receiving DishNet's programming at 110 and 119.

If the answer is YES, what extra switches do I need?

I don't think so. U can use the same dish, but I believe separately. The points are similar, but not exact, to the best of my knowledge. When I say not exact, I think there's decimal pts involved, like 110.x and 119.x, but I'm not entirely sure.

But if it does work, all u need is a multiswitch.

I do know people that have fta receivers (to get dish), and they had to hang different dishes to separate from their DTV.
