Most bell dishes will work with most receivers, with a few exceptions.
HD PVR's require either two cables in, or a DPP LNB setup.
If a HD receiver is on a SD dish, it simply will not display HD content, it is still usable.
Older receivers sometimes have issues working alone on the newest style (DPP) of dish.
If you email us model numbers and either a dish description or picture we can let you know if it will work, or what you may need to get it working.
