I have Dish and a tailgater antenna (white with single connector). Can it be reprogrammed to use with Directv?

I don't believe they can but for the final word contact the manufacturer, King controls in Bloominton MN.

That antenna was made specifically for Dish network You would have to call King but
1: I do not think it can be re-set
2: even if it can you'd only get a tiny fraction of the Direc programming for Direc like Dish uses 3 different Sats. and that antenna can only see one of them the other two it can not even see let alone work with


Home is where I park it.

The Tailgater is Dish specific since it requires controlling software on the receiver to operate properly. King does (or did) make a DTV compatible model, but I don't recall the number.

I have a dish tailgater and i'm pretty sure it can't be configured or Direct.
Not sure if it's still the case but when I got my Tailgater it was HD compatible. Direct TV Sat receivers were not.
