I have a Dish 500 that I am not using. Some of the programs that directv offers interests me. Is there way that I can point the Dish500 to the directv bird and use a directv receiver and call for programming? Would that work? I tried searching this forum for an answer and could not find any previous postings. However found few other forums on the net where people had asked similar questions but they were 4 years old. Not sure if anything has changed that would prevent me to do this. anyone who has done this?
