    Unfortunately you can not modify a small dish for reception of FTA channels since they are too small, you may pick up one channel but even that would be very lucky, you will need at least a 31" dish for FTA.

    You also can not modify a DirecTV receiver for FTA since it is not a DVB tuner (Different standard that is not compatible with DVB).
