DISH 8PSK Transition and Winegard Satellites

 

In an effort to enhance their services and to add additional HD channels, DISH has changed the way they broadcast satellite signals to customers. This change has taken place so if your Winegard product is operating properly your system has the latest changes.

 

Winegard designs products that are able to withstand changes that satellite providers make however this particular change does affect some Winegard mobile satellite products that were manufactured prior to 2013. All products manufactured after that date do not require any updates.

 

Most systems prior to 2013 will still operate properly following simple setup instructions. To check detail system information, view the chart below.

 


 

Steps to Follow:
1. Determine product model. (RT4000T, GM-1518, Etc.)
2. Determine the serial number of their product.
3. Use the serial number to determine build date (Years) and the (Model #) to determine your options.

 

Example Serial Number: RT4000T~0224160400286172
The first six digits after the ~ represent the manufactured date of the product.

 

Note: Product built from January 2013 to present date should not have issues as the electronics are capable of handling the changes made by the satellite provider.
