Dish Network Equipment

On this page you'll find just about anything you could possibly want to know about Dish Network equiment, including technical information for all four generations of receivers and every switch, LNB and accessory ever produced for Dish Network. Why is this here? Because, although Dish may be miles ahead of other pay TV providers in service, reliability, and honesty (although that isn't really saying much), they can be really secretive and either don't like to or are unable to give concrete answers to any really technical questions. How does the Hopper send programming to the Joeys? Does this LNB work with that receiver? Find out everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask. Please note that I am (no longer) affiliated with Dish Network in any way, so general tech support questions like "wha don't my TV box work no more?" should be directed to Dish Network's support line at 1-800-333-3474. If you have a question about some obscure piece of hardware or need to know the best way to hook something up, feel free to send me an email.


Echostar has been producing receivers under the Dish Network brand since 1996. There are (currently) four generations of receivers from dish, "Legacy", Dish Pro, ViP, and XiP - Hoppers and Joeys.
