Will I be able to receive 123W
I am a previous subscriber to Dish Network. Will I be able to receive 123W on that dish? It's about 24" x 31" oval. I'm hoping I can leave the dish aimed where it's at (pointing toward 119W), buy a linear LNB and FTA receiver and be good to go. Will this work? Thanks.

If it's only 24" high, I don't think it will work. You need at least a 76cm. A 90 cm is better because of the 2 degree spacing.

123w, however, may not be the best target for that undersized dish. There is potential interference from 125w next door that could cause trouble. As stated above, a 90CM dish is recommended on that satellite.Current systems: 3X GEOSATpro microHD PVRs; Digitrans DTE-7150 DVB/Digicipher II; SiliconDust HDHomeRun ATSC/QAM networked tuners; fixed 1 meter Channel Master dish with Eagle Aspen P870 FSS stacked Ku LNB; 2X 3ABN 36" dishes with Sadoun KBSL1 stacked Ku LNBFs on Powermax SG-9120B H-H motors; fixed Sadoun SD180G 1.8 meter dish with Eagle Aspen B1SAT stacked C LNBF; Winegard Square Shooter OTA DTV antenna

Few additional comments:
- you'll have to slightly re-aim your dish, but since you're a former subscriber that should not be a problem.
- no purchase required of an LNB if you do have a SuperDish. But, let's get that clarified.
- I believe it's the 31" wide that'll bite you in the butt, not the 24" height.
- You should get -some- transponders on 123°, but probably not all (just a guess)
- do you need brand suggestions on a receiver? Blind scan is highly desirable. Don't get a hacker-box.
edit: oh, you're in the north east? that'll make the 123° & 125° satellites appear even closer together to you.
Really not the best situation. However, tell us more about your dish, and give a try.
