Will the tracvision dish on my 01 still work if I hook a modern DIRECTV receiver up to it?

Call Tracvision, Dish or Direct. They will tell you yay or nay. My 2006 didn’t work, it went in the trash. I have Wineguard Roadtrip with Dish. Love it, get HD while driving down The Road.

Mine still works, but I am using a old standard definition box. So my days are numbered and so is the number of channels. To the best of my knowledge it won't work with a hi def box.
I will take it all out once I'm ready to replace the TV up front. I've got the bedroom TV replaced once and will probably upgrade it one more time.
I should have put a smart TV in so I could stream.

FWIW ... I have the original Motosat satelite dish that works with Directv SD only. Recently, we made a change to our Directv account resulting in the old SD receiver being removed from the account. Directv refused to put it back on the account.

So, I purchased an H24 receiver which is HD capable but also still supports the old 18” Round satellite dish. Yes, there are some channels not available on SD but we’re getting enough to be satisfied while traveling. If the Motosat dish fails or we lose too many SD channels then it’ll be time for a Winegard Traveler. So far we’re ok.
