Mini Max Satellite Dish question?
 
Looking a motorhome that has a Winegard Mini Max sat dish. The owner has been using Dish. I have Direct TV. Is there anything I have to do other then the obvious of hooking up the cables etc to use my Direct Receiver box? Is there a hidden switch or anything I have to do to switch from Dish to Direct? Thanks

So Brian- Has someone answered you as yet? I'm over here in Silicon Valley. I have the auto find MiniMax unit hooked up to my Direct TV, two Sony 40" HDTVs and think I have the answer. I recall in the original manual it states, to change the DIP switches at the dish from Dish Networks to D-TV. I suppose you can download the manual to get the details. I hope this helps? If you still have problems I can copy the manaul page for you.

Thanks Phil, hadn't even thought about looking for a manual online. I looked and found one, answered all my questions.

Brian on my min-max when you remove the dome you will see the correct position for the dip switches that Winegard have put on there for Dish-Direct or Bell we have had ours for 3 years and love it
