DirecTV has mailed me my new HR20 which has arrived, however my 5 lnb dish will not me installed till next week. Before I call them to transfer the card from my HR10-250 to the new HR20, I want to make sure it will work with my old 3lnb untill the 5 is installed. I know I wont get the new channels on the two new sats but will what I currently have work until the new dish arrives or should I hold out till the 5 arrives?
Thanks!

DarwynZ,

The three lnb set up WILL work for you until you get the 5 LNB set up.
remember to set it up for the correct LNB when you set it up and you will need to change it whan you get the 5 LNB, but they will set the 5 lnb up for you and set up the receiver as well.

ShockeyTime,
they will send you a receiver IF you already have the proper dishnset up

Thanks for that answer. I Still have the 3lbn on the roof, so I guess they'l bring Both on the 8th of febuary, hopefully!!!!!!

BTW LOL I used to have it in the middle of the yard, nice and tight, great location, but my newest dog as a young pup of 1 year, used to pull the wires off the metal poll, Not once but 3x :) I fimally moved it to the roof and every once in a while when I'm in the yard with him, he looks at me, then the dish on the roof, then back at me with a look like, comon boss, let me at it!!!! the little effer HEH...
