Thanks in advance for any responses:

I am switching from DISH to DirecTV in several weeks when I receive the HD TiVO DirecTV unit. In the interim, and while I am still hooked up to DISH, can I use the DirecTV Phase III dish to pick up the DISH 110 and 119 satellites?

I realize that the location in the sky is different than for DirecTV. My question is whether I can remove the DISH 500 and install the DirecTV Phase III dish. Use the DirecTV Phase III dish to pick up DISH 110 and 119 satellites for several weeks, and then eventually reaim the Phase III dish and switch over to DirecTV.

Thanks again for any answers!

I don't think it will work with E* because the phaseIII dish has a built in multiswitch which is not compatable with E* system. Thats just my understanding, someone else maybe could answer this better.

Crazy 1 you are on the money the directv switch for 119 is incompatible with DISH technology and the special LNB Directv uses for 110 will not work period.
