Is Service required?

A friend of mine is a former DTV subscriber (has an HD dish etc installed last year) but he discontinued his service since he's out on business alot - he still has the HD DTV dish and plumbing etc. In any event he would like to host the fight this weekend at his place....can I bring over my Active HD DVR and hook it up to his dish and watch the fight from there without getting in trouble with DTV? I know previously that the pre-HD dishes were basically passive....is that still true?

Thanks in advance....

I think it would work fine.

The only thing would be to make sure you have the correct dish listed when you connect your Receiver in the setup menu.

So get there early

I'm pretty sure it detects the dish type on power up.

It will work fine if his dish is still aligned properly. Dont worry about the phone connection at his house. Be sure that you have done a call in before you remove the box from your house to insure the IPPV is active.
