    [Viewsat] Viewsat VS2000 Ultra Terrestrial Scan

    I don’t think the ultra can do a terrestrial scan, most likely, this feature was to use as a loop for viewing terrestrial tv on older coaxial television sets. The viewsat ultra was manufactured before atsc has been deployed.

    OTHER Newbie just starting out

    What i recommend for starters is to go one step at a time. 1 fixed dish to begin with, then move on from there. If you like your initial setup and want to expand, then it’ll be worth it.

    OTHER Question about using a Directv Satellite Dish with a FTA reciever.

    If you’re looking to get diginets on fta you will need a c band dish 6-8 ft minimum. You might be able to use a slimline dish to get some ku band programming , you will have to change the lnb and make a bracket for it. You could be able to get some of the strongest signals on 103w and 97w.
