Hi, I am a current Dish subscriber and former Directv subscriber. I have a summer cottage with an old Directv dish - SD only pointing to 101 sat. I currently have a VIP 211 receiver that I would like to take with me when I leave my primary residence for the summer. I was told that I might be able to repoint the dish to either the 110 or 119 sat and get some but not all of my channels without having to get a new dish. Can anyone confirm if this will work and which sat I would want to use? If this will work I have a second question. The dish on my primary residence is aimed to the eastern sats (72 & 61.5?). Do I need to change any settings on the receiver if switching sat locations or will it automatically detect the signal from a different location? Thank you!
