722K with both 500 & 1000.4 ???
We recently upgraded our home to (2) 722K's & a 1000.4 dish. We have the old 500 dish & a place at the beach. I've read in other posts that this receiver can work with the older 500 dish but obviously only in standard definition. My question is.....can I take one of my receivers with me to the beach & connect it to the 500 dish while I'm there on the weekend & then back to the 1000.4 at home on Monday without much trouble, or will this require alot of B.S. & should I just purchase another 1000.4 dish ??? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Steve.

Pretty much, you'll have to run a check switch test whenever you take the receiver from your normal home to the beach home, and vice versa

I'm pretty new to this so I'm not up on the names of the parts. I'm pretty sure I have the DPP LNB. It's one piece & has 2 connections on the 119W side & 1 connection on the 110W side.
Can you explain how to run a check switch test, show me a diagram of how to connect it to the 500 & tell me how to aim the 500 ?

Assuming the LNB on the 500 is DPP, you only need to run one line to the receiver, using the DPP seperator
For dish pointing angles, I would recommend using dishpointer.com
