RD-9046 - Dish 500 Compatibility
Date Modified: 2009-01-28

I have been considering purchasing your portable satellite system the RD-9046. I have noticed on a couple of websites that it is not recommended for Dish 500. I have Dish TV and will be using a Dish 522 receiver. Is this correct that it is not compatable with the RD-9046, and what are the issues?

Tech Tip:
The RD-9046 is a Dish 300 dish which means that it is compatible with either of the two satellites for Dish 500 but can not receive them both at the same time. This means that it is MUCH easier to aim each time you use it but that you will need to re-aim it if you want to watch a channel that is on the 110 satellite while you are aimed at the 119.
