The newer receivers do not switch voltages for the even and odd transponders.
Instead, they receive a "stacked " signal where the odd and even transponder frequencies are simultaneously received on a single cable, eliminating the need for voltage switching.

Thus, they need a "stacking" lnb to transmit the signal.
Dishpro lnb's are "stacking" lnbs and the type you need.
It uses the standard DBS 12.2-12.7 Mhz signal.

When you see a reference to a "legacy" lnb, it is the old voltage switching type.
So - don't buy a legacy style lnb.

If you get a "Dish Mexico" dish, you can get a limited package of US channels with some locals on 77. A few city's locals are available in HD and the rest would be SD.
