First off, you have all been great help and I might be getting the hand of this. This of course brings up more questions.
I've been looking on craigslist and have found some dish satellites. If I understand correctly, the LNB is the receiver piece sitting in the front of the dish. Is there a way to test these on a used dish to make sure there's no problem or don't they go bad?
I've noticed that some satellites support two receivers and some only one (I think the tailgater is only one). Is this referring to simultaneous viewing of different channels? We will be getting a TV for the bedroom in our new Rockwood 2604WS TT. So I'm guessing that we'll need a receiver for both TVs OR since my wife usually goes to bed before I do she'd be forced to watch what I'm watching.
I'm not even sure if we had one receiver in the living room if the bedroom would get satellite or if it would only get broadcast TV.
Finally, I've seen Dish offers a Vip211K receiver and i'm wondering if it's any good?
thanks for all your help.
