What can I do with this.
I recently bought a home and a satellite dish about 8 ft across is sitting in the yard with the cable still ran to the house. I don't have a receiver for it or know how to use it. Can I still use it and what do I need if so.

- any names on the dish, mount, or LNB cover?
- is it a solid dish, a perforated dish, or a mesh dish?
- is there a motor that moves the dish, and how does that look?
- if you look under the LNB cover.... would you know what you're looking at? (no offense, we have you covered) -

Yes, you can likely use it.
Some of our members may recommend a 4DTV receiver, and some inexpensive subscription packages.
Others will recommend DVB receivers, for totally free-to-air operation.
Consider both camps - you might even choose to go both ways.
How far you are away from good off-the-air reception may influence your decisions.
Also, what sorts of TV shows/programming/games would you like to be able to see?

It is a 10 foot unimesh dish. I has very small holes in the mesh. It has a ribbin type cable coming from it to the house with 3 wires in it from what I can tell. it does have a motor on it and a arm for movement or adjustment I guess.

I'll get no receiver with it and know nothing about C-band. Just to straighten me out before I start looking, I'll need a 4DTV receiver in order to get programing from NPS?
