Since Dish network has gone to MPEG 4, gone to new receivers, and added more HD programming, can I still use a MPEG 2, 811 HD receiver? If so will thier be limitations on it ?:scratchhead:

Thanks Mike. Too bad that it can't be obsolete and still be useable, like my super beta vcr, s-vhs vcr, laserdisc player, and cassette.

Thanks Guys, I thought this was wierd, because people are still buying and selling older dish recievers, including 811's on ebay, and if it won't work, what's the point, unless they are dealing in unusual and very expensive door stops.

I have the answer. I spoke to a Dish Network installer today and he told me that the original satellite is still up there broadcasting MPEG2, but they have a newer satellite that is broadcasting MPEG4, with more content. Case closed. Thanks
