Converting Motosat HD dish from Dish Network to Direct TV

Have any of you converted your Motosat HD dish from Dish Network to Direct TV (or the other way)?

What was involved? What did it cost? Are there any gotchas?

It depends on which model MotoSAT you have.

Some can be converted by changing the LNB head and possibly the LNB arm.

A call to MotoSAT would be best.

Like Dirk said, it depends on which Motosat dish you have.

We have a Motosat Executive on our camper...the one with just one LNB. We changed from DirecTV to Dish Network and it was just a matter of reprogramming the controller. It didn't cost us a dime.

However, if you have a multiple-LNB Motosat dish, then it'll cost you the price of the new multiple-LNB arm and the price of install, unless you install it yourself.
