    Will this work - just take access card instead of entire receiver?

    I go out to this location a few times a month. Can I just get an additional room in my house ($5/month) and leave it at my camp even though it won't be turned on but 2-3 times a month?

    Will this work - just take access card instead of entire receiver?

    Hi. I've posted a few times about setting up a dish at my cabin 75 miles away from my home and just taking a home reciever with me when I go to the cabin. I'm wondering if I can just buy a new receiver (same exact model as home receiver) and just take the access card from home to camp with...

    MPEG-4 - when?

    How wide are those "spotbeams"? Is it a given that once I change to the oval dish (like home), I'll get my home locals 75 miles away?

    Took receiver to camp - local channels didn't work...

    Home is in Jackson, MS. Cabin is 60-75 miles east in Newton, MS. It's 2/3 of the way between Jackson and Meridian. <EDIT> I'm using round, although I have an oval laying around I could use. Not planning on doing any HD though. </EDIT>

    Summer Home With Same Subscription

    I just did this this weekend. But....local channels did not work at my "2nd home". Actually, it's more like a camp. Anyway, will local channels work in both locations? Do you have to program the receiver with your "new" zip code?

    Hi. I have a cabin 75 miles away from my home. I installed a dish on the cabin and took one of my receivers from home and it worked fine...except for one thing. When I went to the local channels, it said I haven't paid for those channels. Now the local channels where my cabin is are...
