Hey guys I want to setup a new prepaid account. What I want to do is I have purchased a VIP 222k receiver on craigslist. Also I have 2 dish network dishes already on my house. It is a eastern arc setup with the one dish at 110 and 119 and one at 61.5. The cable was cut where it entered the house. What switch do I need to put back to make it work. Also I don't want a contract or any kind of credit check so I'm hoping prepaid will work out.

That's not EA, it's just a mixed arc. What kind of LNB is on the one getting 119/110? If it is a DP Plus Twin, the 61.5 sat can be run into the "LNB In" on it and it has an internal switch. Make sure you get the seperator with the 222, and that nothing is owed to Dish for it

Just to let the OP know, Eastern Arc is 61.5, 72.7, and 77

The first thing you must do is call DISH with the R00# of the 222 and be sure it can be used before you invest any money in switches and other equipment. Next list exactly the equipment that you have. There are many different combinations that can work. If you are looking for HD broadcasting you will need to move your dishes for a pure EA or WA setup, 61.5 has lost a lot of HD channels.
