I wanted to use my H25-100 receiver from home as well, but I just don't think the eqpt is compatible. I'm going to have to either exchange/return or purchase a compatible Standard def receiver.
You can only get Std def with the 18 in dish.
this is what i have found out also.
so whats the best way to go? slimline dish or a standard receiver?
the dish is more $ up front but the receiver will cost more in the long run.
if i go with the slimline dish what all do i need. the swm box that has to be pluged in all the time or just the dish and receiver?
