Just push a button and the dish will automatically acquire the satellite(s) compatible with your receiver. With the new advanced satellite switching feature, you can now switch between up to 8 stored satellite locations to access all available programming and are not limited to a pre-set pair.

What is Satellite Switching?
Depending on your satellite service provider and programming package, you may receive your channels from a single satellite or from multiple satellite locations. If your channels are broadcasted from more than one satellite, the antenna needs to switch between satellites to let you view all available channels.
DIRECTTV basic programming is broadcast from the 101° satellite, so switching is not required.
Dish Network channels are split between the 110° and 119° satellites, so the dish must switch between these satellites to view all available programming. The new DVB model King-Dome systems automatically switch satellites when you select a channel. Its that simple.
DIRECTTV HD programming is broadcast from 3 different satellite locations, and King-Dome DVB models have the ability to automatically switch between the selected satellites (requires optional HD converter)
