Check this out... Here's another way to use the 8PSK module for your Dish 6000 receiver... With this you can plug you 8PSK module into a FTA (Free To Air) receiver and enjoy all kinds of programming which is up there in 8PSK format.

(What that programming is I have no idea) :)

Designs are standardized enough to allow this?

An FTA or "Free to Air" receiver is a set top satellite box that can receive satellite channels that are designated as Free to Air. An example of FTA channels on Dish Network include the NASA channel and the Men's Channel.

question:
which band is dish broadcasting at now? is it c band on most of the birds and ku on 105 and 128?

I've got a bunch of dishes w/lnb's laying around and figured maybe I could have some fun (for a couple of hundred dollars)
:D

All Ku band. E*, D*, EPV all are circular polarity. Lots of FTA channels -- but many are in foreign languages.

gredneck, all pertinent information gathering at www.lyngsat.com
thanks,
been looking at some FTA sights, and getting edumacated in FTA stuff.
by the looks of it I might be able to pick up a few intl. channels that I subscribe
to just for my parents ( Iwatch them once in a while)
and PBS Kids an so on ....
probably about $35.00+ mo. in dish charges :D

not bad, I might spend the $200+........IF It Works :confused:

That sites does give a bit TOO much information..

It tells people that the $100 FTA receiver I bought a few months ago can be modified to get all of DISH Network's channels without a smartcard!

As the result, I can resell that receiver on Ebay for about $200 or more right now.

I am going to remove that link now. :)

When it was sent to me the 8psk was the top thing on the page, I did not realize that there were alternative motives for the site (It looked like a legit FTA site.)
