    I'd like to switch my Tivo HD receiver to my large oval dish from Hughesnet 6000 modem

    I believe it will work, but which 2 outputs on the dish do I use?
    There are two midway along the arm and one on the end of the ...LNB(?)
    The 6000 modem was connected to the end output and one in the middle of the arm

    Right now I can't seem to get a signal from any of the outputs

    Are the LNBs even compatible (Ka - Ku) and right voltage and polarity (right/left)? And is Hughsnet even using the same sat as for TV?

    Personally I would just get the right dish.

    Not to mention that it probably can only point to one sat.

    Don't hook up to those dway coax connectors, your considering hooking up to a 1watt transmiter(under the arm) and a sat. LNB.
    From your post I assume your wanting TV programing for the TV and not trying to enable the "phone home" services handled by a phone line.
    To avoid another dish, you can buy a bracket to bolt onto the Dway dish LNB area that would hold a DishNet or DirectTV LNB. This gives you TV programming and internet on same dish- if your pointed at the right Hughesnet(Direcway) satellite. If you are intent on doing that, email me from my website.
