Sorry , but it's not done that way.
You need to point the dish at the sats (correct ones at that) regardless if your at home or at your other location.
ass for getting your Home locals at the other location depends on how far away the other location is and if your still in your local spotbeam.
Locals are set up on Spotbeams now, not Conus.

If your out of your local spot beam you will get the normal programming, but not your locals.
If you are still in your locals spotbeam, you will pick them up when you get your set up set.

This sounds like a VERY old recvr, a lot of the everyday channels have moved to Mpeg4 technology that your old recvr won't handle, so you may NOT get ALL your programming that you get at home.

Have you set up the dish before ?

I would try to set that up at home before you try going elsewhere , just so your comfortable setting the thing up.
What dish are you hoping to use ?

What ?
:confused:

None of the "everyday channels" have moved to only using MPEG4 technology.
There's HD versions of a lot of the "everyday channels", but you can still get all the "everyday channels" without upgrading to a slimline dish and an MPEG4 compatible receiver.

They are still all mirroring them in both Mpeg4 as well as Mpeg 2 ?
