I was recently given a Coolsat 5000 platinum receiver from a friend. I'm thinking it was probably hacked but I have not powered it on. I'm hoping I can still use for FTA and maybe pointing to the 123 sat (G18). The biggest dish I have Phase 2 direct TV dish, but I'm not quite sure it's big enough or if the LNB is the right type. I already have an extra cable going to the roof when I was using legacy equipment with E* and I still have. Do I need anything else before I try to set this up properly?
