I just ordered the new Slimline Dish as I would like to get it on my roof before winter is here. I don't plan on purchasing HD receivers for a few months as that is when my new theater room will be built. Will the regular receivers I use now (with my round dish) still work with the new Slimline dish?
Well, I would not say it is "exactly the same". It is much bigger, has LNBs for five satellites instead of one, and has a multiswitch capable of properly switching and combining the signals from all the LNBs. But as far as DTiVos are concerned, the Slimline can be treated as if it were a round dish or a 3-sat dish.
