Are you talking about the adapter DISH had for their receivers or the actual box produced by Sling before and then after DISH bought them? The first is only for specific DISH receivers, second is for many uses, receivers.

This an adapter

Yes, to someone else maybe if they are looking for one cheap. Though the VIP series is no longer being installed so it would need to be someone that still has a VIP that supports it and wants it... For your use no.

Ok well my friend gave it to me for free so I didn't know what it was. Is there way you can wipe it clean and use it for anything else?

Just to clarify, the one you have is red and not silver, right?
