I have dish network and a DSR920 and the antennas look exactly, and I mean exactly the same. I would be surprised if it didn't work.

Can't you make one out of a large paperclip, a plastic bead, and a used connector? - :D
. . . or maybe a length of music-wire from a hobby-shop.

Is lack of that little antenna really a concern?


edit: sorry, don't mean to be rude.
Just seems like something easy enough to fashion if it's missing.
And I think DishStore may even sell them...

No it's not really a big deal i more or less was just wondering if a dishnetwork one would work because it would be an easy fix.

It's easy enough to make one out of a piece of coax if the jack is an F connector like most are.

I have a DN 222 receiver located in the bedroom, and my wife sometimes watches the second tuner in the living room. She was having some trouble with the remote not responding properly. I used a piece of coax from the UHF antenna jack and ran it into the basement and tacked it to a floor joist at a point under her chair. I cut the jacket and braid and left a length of center conductor that was close to the length of the little antenna...no more problem...
