Okay. I have a dish network satellite dish and receiver (subscribed). My brother in law gave me an extra direct tv receiver he doesn't use. He is a paid customer of Direct tv so the receiver is functional. I want to try out the box but don't know how to hook it up with the dish satellite or even if it is possible. The Dish sat is Dish 500 and the lnb says plus or pro on it. I really want to try this box out because the area I live in in NY does not receive any local channels unless I pay extra, and then they are not even NY channels. His receiver is from NYC metro area. Please help.
