I found a feed I wanted tonight on analog and pulled out the old Echostar 500. I had not tried this unit since I acquired it. I hook it to the TV by coax and turn it on. It fires up and I look at snow. I have 3 buttons to choose from other than the power button that turned it on. "Mode", "up" and "down". I push mode and get "[Not on Sat]" in the upper left corner, "CH 20" with "VNR" below the ch20 in the upper right corner. The bottom displays the volume and the up and down arrows move the volume. The received is hooked straight to the Invacom quad linear port on Ku as I was watching ONN earlier and now so I know there is a signal. I have no instruction manual and no remote control.
